There are many giving options with possible tax benefits accompanying each choice. Gifts may be tailored to express the donor's interests and tax situation.
  • Gifts of Cash
    Most gifts to Special Camp for Special Kids are cash contributions for 
    which donors receive tax benefits if they itemize deductions.
  • Gifts-in-Kind
    Donations of technology, equipment, supplies, furniture, food, and other items relevant to our programming needs and in good condition are welcome. The donor, through appraisal or record of purchase, determines gift value. If the in-kind gift is of direct and immediate use to Special Camp, a donor may deduct the full fair market value. If the donated property is not directly related to the program's mission, the deduction is limited to the cost oasis in the property.
  • Appreciated Stocks and Securities
    Gifts of appreciated stocks or mutual fund shares provide immediate support to the program. Donors may realize substantial tax savings by transferring appreciated stock or securities to the program prior to the sale. Capital gains on the amount of appreciation may be avoided, and the donors receive a tax deduction based on the fair market value of the stock or property at the time of the gift.
  • Life Insurance
    A major gift to Special Camp for Special Kids may be funded with a new or old life insurance policy at a relatively small cost. There are many ways in which life insurance policies can be used to make a contribution, all of which provide tax deductions and may enable donors to make a larger gift than otherwise possible.
  • Bequests
    A valid, updated will is the cornerstone of an effective estate plan, and a bequest is a provision in your will to make a gift to the future of Special Camp's vision.
  • Planned Gifts
    Planned giving allows almost any individual to provide a gift to Special Camp for Special Kids while carrying out his or her own financial goals. Through planned giving, donors may find that they are able to make a more generous gift to Special Camp while receiving financial benefits such as increased current income, tax savings, avoidance of capital gains tax, and reduced estate settlement costs.
