Gifts of Cash

Gifts of Cash

Cash, usually in the form of a check, is an easy and convenient way for you to support worthy causes in the community.

Cash gifts enable you as a donor to claim a current tax deduction of up to 50% of your adjusted gross income in any one year when you itemize deductions, with the excess carried forward for an additional five years.

Giving by check

Please make the check payable to The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. In the memo section or on a separate piece of paper, write the name of the fund into which the gift is going.

Mail or deliver the check to: The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, 70 Audubon St. New Haven, CT  06510

Giving by wire transfers

To make a gift via wire transfer, please contact Dotty Weston-Murphy at or 203-777-7081.

Giving by credit card

To make a secure online credit card donation, please visit our online giving page. The fund that receives a credit card gift will incur the transaction fee assessed by the credit card processing company; this fee does not reduce the deductibility of the contribution.

If you have any questions about donating cash, please contact Dotty Weston-Murphy at 203-777-7081.
