Ways to Give


Cash Gifts or Online Donations


Unique Naming Opportunities enable you to have a space or room named after you for years to come. 


Planned Giving is a contribution, through a will or trust, that is arranged in the present and allocated once the donor has passed away.


Tribute Gifts are a meaningful way to support NSSC while honoring or memorializing special people in your life. Our new Forever Grateful Wall is a place where your loved one's name can find a lasting home within NSSC for generations to come.


Recurring Gifts can be set up on our secure website by visiting the Donate page. 


Matched Gifts are donations from corporations or businesses that match charitable gifts from employees or retirees at a specific ratio set by the employer.


Publicly Traded Securities (Stock) can be donated by getting stock transfer instructions from your broker.


In-Kind (Non-Cash) Gifts are tangible personal property such as works of art, antiques, collectibles, personal property, and equipment.


A Bequest or codicil in your will or trust is an easy way to make a deferred gift.


Life Insurance for which all the premiums have been paid is an ideal way to make a charitable contribution.


Real Estate can be given as appreciated property if held for longer than one year. The donor benefits from a federal income tax charitable deduction and avoids paying capital gains tax.


Retirement Plan Assets from an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity can be left to NSSC, leaving your loved ones with less heavily taxed assets.


IRAs allow donors 70 years old or older to give up to $100,000 from their IRAs without having to pay income taxes on the money.


Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) allow donors to make charitable contributions, receive immediate tax deductions, and recommend grants from the fund over time. 


NSSC's Heritage Society is for donors who make a one-time outright cash gift of $25,000 or more, designate NSSC as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan, savings bond, bank account, or life insurance policy, and have provided for NSSC in their will or trust. This commitment is a legacy for the future and guarantees continued quality senior services to our community.
