Private support of the Commission for Social Justice® (CSJ) is vital to its success. To assist donors, the CSJ provides a range of donation options. All are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by federal law.
All gifts to the CSJ are evaluated regularly by the Board of Directors and an independent auditor. Full fiduciary responsibility for the management of donor accounts and distribution of funds to beneficiaries is administered by CSJ staff and a professional team of advisors, including accountants, attorneys and certified financial managers.
When you make a gift to the CSJ, you have flexibility in determining how the funds will be used, as well as multiple options for making your gift.
Unrestricted gifts, large or small, are among the most valuable to the Commission for Social Justice® because they allow us to allocate funds wherever the need is greatest, and to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise.
Directed gifts allow you to designate your gift to a specific CSJ program, or to an endowment you may establish. When you make a directed gift to the CSJ, you enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a program that is personally meaningful to you.
Please contact the National Office for more information or to make a major gift.
When you make an outright gift to the Commission for Social Justice®, your contribution can be put to work immediately, providing funding for current programs. An outright gift may be composed of almost any asset of value.
The Commission for Social Justice® welcomes your gift through a pledge – a formal statement of intention to make a gift to the CSJ.
With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time, allowing yourself to give more generously than you originally may have considered. Each payment on your pledge is eligible for an income-tax deduction in the tax year in which it is made.
A simple way to increase your donation to Commission for Social Justice® is to find out if your company has a matching-gift program.
Such programs typically match a percentage or sometimes all employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in their employees’ personal philanthropy.
To institute a matching gift:
Obtain a matching-gift form from your employer, complete it, and provide it to the CSJ with your contribution.
In some cases, a matching gift request must be made to your employer after you make your donation to the CSJ. Kindly apprise us at the time you make your donation if you plan to request a matching gift.
