Other Ways to Support CAPTAIN Community Human Services

Gifts Of Cash - Gifts of cash are the most common and often the simplest to make. Checks should be made payable to CAPTAIN CHS and brought or sent to CAPTAIN CHS at 5 Municipal Plaza, Suite 3, Clifton Park, NY 12065 or 543 Saratoga Road, Glenville, NY 12302. You can also donate immediately online by clicking "DONATE" in the upper right-hand corner of this page.

Host an Event by Others - Individuals and businesses in our community have been very generous in raising awareness of and funds for CAPTAIN CHS by hosting a fundraiser. The event can be as simple or elaborate as you'd like -- a raffle, bake sale, proceeds from selling a specific item, a luncheon, and more. If you are interesting in hosting an event, or learning more about this opportunity, please contact Wendy at 518-399-4624 or

- Another way to support CAPTAIN CHS is through gifts of tangible personal property. We have an ever-changing list of needs, including donations to CAPTAIN's Treasures, to Karyl's Kupboard, our Emergency Food & Hygiene Pantry, and other needs as they arise. If you have an items or service that you'd like to donate, but are unsure if it'd be useful for CAPTAIN CHS, please contact Wendy at 518-399-4624 or

Corporate Matching Gifts - You may be able to multiply the value of your gift by participating in a matching gift program provided through an employer such as General Electric or IBM. Your employer’s personnel office can provide you information and forms to take advantage of this unique leveraging opportunity. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match.

Gifts Of Securities - Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds can provide special tax advantages. These include a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift and avoidance of capital gains taxes. For information, please call CAPTAIN CHS at 518-399-4624.

Memorial Or Tribute Gifts
- Any gift may be designated in memory or honor of a friend or loved one. The family of the deceased or person honored will be notified of such gifts.

Gifts Of Real Estate - Gifts of homes, farms, and other real property can receive the same tax treatment as gifts of appreciated securities. If property has appreciated over time, its sale may result in a substantial amount of capital gains taxes being due. If debt-free property is donated, the donor receives a deduction for the appraised value. We encourage real estate gifts that are not subject to liens or restrictions that may affect their market value. We usually liquidate such gifts. For information, please call us at 518-399-4624.
