Ways To Give

Circle of Hope Annual Giving Program

Together, we can make this an unprecedented time in our community – one in which the abuse of children is reduced or eliminated.  As a not for profit organization, the Child Protection Center relies on the generosity of community members to fulfill our mission of Child Abuse: Prevention, Intervention and Treatment.

Your personal tax-deductible donation to our Circle of Hope Annual Giving will affect every area of the Child Protection Center in both small and large ways.

You will be highlighted in our monthly Eblasts, on our website donor recognition page and on our Circle of Hope donor wall displayed on the first floor of the new Child Advocacy Center.

Planned Giving

There are numerous ways to make a gift that will benefit the Child Protection Center. Please consider the following:

  • Gifts of stock in honor of a loved one is a popular way to make a gift of an appreciated asset and take advantage of the charitable tax deduction without penalty of capital gains.
  • A will or a trust naming the Child Protection Center, Inc. The CPC Development Department is available to help guide you through this process.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity.  A charitable gift annuity provides the donor (s) and/or other named beneficiaries with a guaranteed income at a competitive rate of return.  After their lifetime, the gift annuity establishes a permanent charitable fund that benefits the Child Protection Center.
  • IRA or Qualified Plan and Real Property with Lifetime Use:  Let CPC’s development staff discuss with you assets that can provide for you during your lifetime and furnish a substantial gift to our organization at a later time.


Endowment Fund

What is an endowment fund?

An endowment fund is a permanent fund that acts like a savings account for the Child Protection Center.  A percentage of the fund is available annually to meet the needs of our organization.  The remainder of the earnings are reinvested to protect against inflation and to meet our changing needs in the future.

How will the endowment fund help?

The earnings from our endowment fund can be used to support our daily operations, provide special programs and services or serve as emergency funds.

None of us knows what the future holds, but we do know that right now, CPC plays an essential role in our community.  Because our endowment is permanent, it ensures that future generations will have access to the same quality programs and services we provide today.  Your contributions to this permanent funds can help us meet our mission for many lives to come.

Is my contribution tax deductible?

Absolutely.  Trusts you establish or gifts you make during your lifetime generally qualify as charitable gifts for federal income tax purposes.  In addition, bequests in your will or trust can lower or even eliminate your estate taxes.  You may want to contact your professional advisor before making a gift.  

Building Fund 

CPC would like to send a very special and heartfelt THANK YOU
to all of the donors who have supported our
Pillar of Hope Capital Campaign to date.

In the perfect world, there would be no need for a Child Advocacy Center. But this is not a perfect world.

We still need your support.  Through our Capital Campaign, there are naming opportunities that give you the incredible opportunity to have your name attached to an organization that has a 30 year history of helping child victims of abuse. Each selected Naming Opportunity will be honored with personalized signage and a place on our “one of a kind” Donor Wall that will be displayed in the main lobby.

Sponsor the Clinical Directors office, our Children’s Play Room OR the Parent and Professional Library;  just to name a few.  There are still available naming opportunities for you to consider.  Please call (941)365-1277 and ask for the Development Department to discuss the best option for you.
