ABOUT DONATIONS

Sertoma Centre offers a variety of ways that you can provide support to its programs and services. Financial donations to Sertoma Centre are most welcome and are tax deductible as proscribed by the United States Internal Revenue Service.

Besides corporate giving programs, individual in-kind gifts, honorariums, memorials, and planned giving – information on tax savings, deferred gifts, making a charitable deduction through life insurance and other means – Sertoma Centre has established programs that are specifically tailored to accommodate commitment at any level.

Through the Silent Partner program, individuals support the work of Sertoma Centre on a very personal, quiet, and committed level. Members pledge an annual membership gift of $500 or more to fund the Centre’s programs and services. Monies raised will fund current programming, with a goal of supporting future special projects as they arise. Members of this group are annual contributors whom the Centre can rely on indefinitely for steadfast commitment to continue Sertoma’s important work in the new millennium. Benefits of this exclusive membership are inclusion in the late fall annual golf outing; dinner with a guest at the late winter annual event; membership/business directory; and a framed membership certificate.

Sertoma Centre Foundation Star Society members name the Centre Foundation as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy, will, or in a bequest.

For more information concerning any of these programs, please contact Amy Chmura, Director of Advancement and Communications, at (708)730-6206 or achmura@sertomacentre.org.
