Make a Tribute Gift

Tribute gifts are a wonderful way to support older adults. When you make a gift in honor or in memory of someone dear, you not only recognize someone who has been important in your life, you help create communities where aging is honored and celebrated. When a tribute gift is made, a thank you is sent to the donor and notification is sent to the person being honored or the family of the person being remembered.

Start your donation here.

If you have questions on how to set up a tribute gift or for more information, please contact Olivia Mayer at omayer@clcliving.org or 720-974-3675.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

There are many options to choose from when we think of making a charitable gift, including the QCD, which can be a tax-smart way to make your charitable gifts while helping residents and team members thrive! If you are 70 ½ or older, consider using a “Qualified Charitable Distribution,” or QCD, to support the areas that are dear to you at CLC.

A Qualified Charitable Distribution is a distribution from an IRA made directly to an eligible charity, bypassing the owner of the account. They are also called IRA charitable distributions.

If you are 72 or older and forced to take a required minimum distribution from your IRA plan, and you don’t really need it, a QCD can deliver tax benefits that ‘regular’ charitable donations might not. Please contact Olivia Mayer, Director of Donor Relations, at omayer@clcliving.org or 720-974-3675 for more information. As always, we encourage you to meet with your financial advisor to determine if such strategies are right for you.

Gifts of Stock and Mutual Funds

Donating appreciated stock is one of the easiest ways to give more to support what you care about. Plus, donating stock directly to a charity can be one of the most tax-smart ways to give. By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving 20 percent more than if you sold the stock and then made a charitable donation. How? By avoiding paying capital gains tax on the stock’s appreciated value.

A gift of appreciated securities must be transferred directly to CLC to secure all available tax benefits. Please contact Olivia Mayer, Director of Donor Relations, at omayer@clcliving.org or 720-974-3675 before requesting the transfer with your broker so that we can assist with acceptance of the transfer.

Through Your Estate Plan

Christian Living Communities created the Compassion Circle to honor and thank those who have taken special steps to include CLC in their long-term plans. There are many ways to do this. Some have named CLC in their will or living trust, while others have named us as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, IRA or charitable trust. A variety of options exist.

Many people like to preserve their full control over their assets during life, protecting against future uncertainties. Others may choose to maximize any tax and financial benefits that can result from their philanthropy. It’s all a matter of choice. In addition, almost everyone will prioritize family and loved ones first, only providing for CLC after those needs are met. There is tremendous flexibility in this planning.

An estate gift can be directed to Christian Living Communities or designated specifically to a community – Clermont Park, Holly Creek, Someren Glen, Dayspring Villa, Cappella of Grand Junction or Cappella of Pueblo West.

Every estate gift, large or small, helps strengthen Christian Living Communities in permanent ways. We would love to help you discover how easy an estate gift can be.

To learn more please feel free to contact Olivia Mayer at omayer@clcliving.org or 720-974-3675. All inquiries are held in strict confidence. There is never an expectation or obligation to complete any gift.

"Clermont Park is a great place to live. You can participate as much or as little as you want in community activities. You can meet as many people as you like, and they are generally open, so I’ve made a lot of friends in the short time I’ve been here. "
