Ways to Give

Sponsorships – CEE hosts several signature events each year. Sponsorship opportunities are available for each of these events:

Employer Matching Gift – Employer matching gifts are a great way to double your dollars. Many employers will match your contribution as part of their corporate giving initiative. Contact your Human Resource or Personnel department for details.
Gift of Stock – When you make a gift of appreciated securities, CEE benefits from the full amount and you do not pay taxes on the appreciated value. Consult your tax/estate/financial adviser, and CEE will provide details on making a transfer.
Tribute – Making a gift in honor of someone special is a perfect way to recognize that person while supporting CEE. You can commemorate a milestone or celebrate a special occasion. An acknowledgement will be sent to the individual letting him/her know that you are honoring them in this special way. Making a gift in memory of a loved one is a meaningful way to remember someone special and having the satisfaction of knowing your gift will support CEE and its mission.
Planned Gifts – Gifts made through wills, retirement plans, trusts, and life insurance allow you to plan your giving for the future and allows CEE to continue its mission. These planned gifts also may have the benefit of providing you with current and/or future income tax reductions as well as generating income for yourself or loved ones. CEE is happy to work with you and your financial advisers to establish the appropriate gift.
Gift in Kind – In addition to direct financial contributions, CEE also accepts donations of material goods or service. In-Kind gifts help us to reduce our overhead, which enables us to focus on strengthening our programs that help move our mission forward.
Settlements – We are a 501(c)3 and eligible to receive settlements as a result of regulatory actions. We then utilize these funds for improving financial literacy and economic education.
