How you can give
All of the following are ways for you to give to CCHH. Taking time to consider 'what' to give, as well as the 'how' and 'when', can make your valuable gifts more meaningful, and will assist you in meeting your personal planning goals too.
Do you have an older car, truck, van, trailer, RV or boat taking up valuable space in your driveway?
Car donations support Habitat for Humanity’s local and global mission of eliminating poverty housing and homelessness and save you the time and energy of finding a buyer.
It is quick and easy to donate automobiles, trucks, boats, RV’s, motorcycles, construction equipment and other vehicles ~ running or not! Plus, you may be eligible for a tax deduction. (Consult your tax advisor or the IRS for details.)
For more information on how to donate a car, truck, boat or RV to Cars for Homes™ - Habitat’s official car donation program, call (877) 277-4344 toll free or visit www.carsforhomes.org. A car donation is a convenient way to support Habitat for Humanity of Chenango County and create more space in your driveway!
Examples of choices others have chosen in making provision for CCHH are:
One of these choices may be an appealing alternative for you. It may also permit you to enjoy what may be greater tax savings than deductions provided through gifts of money. We can also provide you with forms to transfer securities, examples for choosing what works best for you…that is, cash giving vs. stocks and possible tax savings. Gifting appreciated property generally allows you greater tax savings than cash, due to bypassing capital gains tax. Gifting depreciated property generally works better for you in saving taxes by selling it first and then giving cash. You may enjoy tax deductions greater than the asset value of the property. You can provide for us in your wills, gift annuities, and trusts ((living or charitable). We recommend your working closely with your financial advisor, and then contacting us.
