Planned Giving

To make Caron a beneficiary of your estate and assets, plan one of the following gifts:

Bequest in a will
Charitable remainders
Charitable lead trust
Gift of retained life estate
Name Caron as a beneficiary to a percentage of your retirement plan

Gifts of Stock

Donate appreciated stock that has been held for more than one year. You pay no capital gains tax on the transaction and are entitled to a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock.

Gifts of Retirement Fund or Life Insurance

Contributing a portion of your retirement fund or life insurance policy is easy to do. Simply request a change in beneficiary form from your provider and list Caron and the percentage or amount. Because your retirement fund is tax deferred, leaving this asset to Caron can provide significant tax savings to your estate and heirs.

Chit Chat Society

Linda Caron Denby, daughter of the late Richard and Catherine Caron, wanted to recognize individuals who were planning for Caron’s future. She founded The Chit Chat Society to do just that. Today, The Chit Chat Society has grown to over 250 individuals who grow Caron’s endowment through planned gifts, such as a bequest intentions, annuities, trusts, insurance, or named endowed funds. We are very grateful for the Chit Chat Society, whose support secures Caron’s future and provides funding designated for scholarships and programs.

Lifetime Partners in Giving

Caron’s Lifetime Partners in Giving Clubs are based on your accumulated lifetime giving. A total lifetime gift of $10,000 or more qualifies you for these prestigious giving clubs. Members of Caron’s Lifetime Giving Clubs are recognized on our “Lifetime Partners in Giving” display located in the lobby of the Chit Chat Auditorium in Wernersville, Pennsylvania.
