Memorial Donor - You may make a donation in honor or memory of a loved one or friend who has died. Let us know that person's name and the name of the family member you would like us to notify of your gift.
Program Donor - Gifts may be made to support a specific CVAA service such as Case Management or Meals on Wheels. All donors are listed, according to their wishes, in our Elders Advocate.
Planned Giving - Donors may choose to make CVAA part of their estate planning for charitable as well as tax reduction reasons.
Gifts of Stock - When you donate an appreciated stock, you are eligible for a tax deduction and you avoid paying captial gains on the stock's increased value.
Bequests - Leaving a tax-deductible bequest in your will, is a gift that will continue to grow, allowing CVAA to sustain our vital programs for elders.
To make a bequest to CVAA, add a sentence to your will stating your intent such as the sample sentence below:
"I bequeath __________________________________ (describe dollar amount, property to be given, or proportion of your residuary estate) to Champlain Valley Agency on Aging, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation located in Burlington, Vermont, 05401, for its general charitable purposes."
CVAA recommends you work with your attorney or financial planner if you are considering one of these options.
Corporate Sponsorship - CVAA is fortunate to have the support of many large and small businesses who contribute to the well-being of elders in our community.
Elders Advocate - The Elders Advocate is published twice a year in the spring and in the fall and offers advertisers an effective way to reach a wide spectrum of mature readers in the Champlain Valley.
Special Events - Individuals, businesses and organizations can support CVAA by participating in or sponsoring CVAA's special events like the Top Chef of the Champlain Valley .
