Giving Opportunities

Gifts of Cash

Gifts of cash in any amount are always welcome. You may use our online donation form, or, if you prefer to write a check, please make it payable to The Center for Community Solutions and mail it to The Center for Community Solutions, 1501 Euclid Avenue, Suite 310, Cleveland, OH 44115.


The work of The Center for Community Solutions has played an important role in your life and the life of Northeast Ohio.  Please consider making a legacy gift that will help us continue our 100-year role providing reliable research and non-partisan public policy analysis and advocacy for the health and human service field.  Your investment in The Center for Community Solutions' future is a meaningful way to carry on your name and values.

Leaving a bequest in a will is often the simplest way to make a significant charitable contribution.  If you already have a will, it is easy to add a codicil, or amendment, naming The Center for Community Solutions, the beneficiary of a bequest.

Life Insurance

Using life insurance, you can make a larger gift to The Center for Community Solutions than you ever thought possible.  A gift of life insurance offers donors of all income levels the chance to make a significant contribution without reducing your income.

The cost of premiums depends on the policy and the donor's age and health.  You can either purchase a new policy naming The Center for Community Solutions as the owner and beneficiary, or transfer ownership of an existing policy whether it's paid up or not.  Please consult your insurance professional for advice.

Gifts of Stock

Many donors give stocks gifts during their lifetime or through an estate plan.  You can receive a significant tax benefit by donating appreciated securities that you've owned for at least 12 months.  If you are interested in making a gift of stock to The Center for Community Solutions, please contact our office first.  We will provide the name of our brokerage firm and an account number to be used for the transfer.  Once stock is received, it will be sold and you will receive a tax deduction for the full market value of the sale of the stock.


Memorial donations are a meaningful way to honor the memory of a loved one.  We will quickly acknowledge the gift and notify the family that a gift has been made.

To notify us that you have made a planned gift, please contact Roslyn Kaleal, at or 216-781-2944 ext. 511.
