Ways to Give
For 50 years, CAA has been at the forefront of the major civil rights battles facing our community. You can directly support our work in advancing social justice and racial and economic equity in a variety of ways.
For one time or recurring donations, visit our main donate page. Donations can be made in honor or in memory of a loved one.
The Leadership Circle is a community of committed civic and community members who contribute $1,000 or more annually to address our community’s most crucial needs. Join our Leadership Circle for compelling learning opportunities and special-access programs and events. If interested, contact Shelly Gin, CAA Development Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Double or triple your support for CAA! Many companies foster a culture of philanthropy and encourage employees to impact communities through matching gift programs. In some cases, donations from retirees, spouses, and board members are also eligible for matching. Consult your organization’s HR department for internal questions on getting your gift matched.
GIVE THE GIFT OF STOCK
Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for at least a year provides a double tax benefit. You can qualify for a charitable income tax deduction and avoid capital gains tax you would owe if you sold the stock yourself. To make a gift, please contact email@example.com.
