Giving Monthly, Helps Daily

If you would like to be a part of a child’s path toward hope and healing, please consider becoming a Champion for Children by Giving Monthly to Help Daily. Just a small donation of $10 a month will help put a child through counseling, transforming that child from victim to Survivor. Stand with us in protecting our children.

AMAZON WISHLIST

As the Valley CAC is a non-profit organization, we rely on the support of generous community members. To make it easier to donate to our center, we have included a link to our Amazon Wish List.

Some items on this list include fidget toys for interviews, art supplies for therapy, cleaning supplies, and other miscellaneous items for our center. Feel free to browse through the list as it is an amazing way to help us support the victims of child abuse and their families.

PLANNED GIVING

Planned giving allows you to realize potential income and transfer tax savings, while helping to ensure the long-term success of Valley CAC. There are a variety of forms that your deferred gift can take, including charitable lead trusts, charitable remainder trusts, insurance beneficiary designations, charitable gift annuities, and other deferred-giving opportunities.

GIFTS OF APPRECIATED STOCK

Giving appreciated stock or mutual funds to Valley CAC gives you an extra tax benefit, because you can deduct the current value of the investment as a charitable contribution if you itemize, and you can also avoid paying capital-gains taxes on the profits. In contrast, you would owe capital-gains taxes if you sold the stock first and then gifted the proceeds to Valley CAC.

CHARITABLE IRA ROLLOVER

Charitable IRA Rollover: If you are over 70 1⁄2, you may be able to make tax-free charitable gifts of up to $100,000 annually directly from your IRA. To qualify for the charitable IRA rollover, a gift must be: (1) made by a donor age 70 1⁄2 or older, (2) transferred from the taxpayer’s traditional or Roth IRA directly to a permissible public charity, such as Valley CAC, and (3) completed during the applicable tax year. If your gift qualifies, the contribution will be excluded from your income and also count toward your required minimum distribution for the applicable tax year.

VOLUNTEER

The Valley CAC is always searching for dedicated community members who are committed to the mission of raising awareness and combatting child abuse. We host several community awareness and fundraising events throughout the year that we can always use help with. You can serve on a planning committee or help us just on event day. It’s a short-term way to make a big impact!

INTERNSHIP

Internships are placements made as part of an academic or professional training program where they offer a meaningful learning experience and practical work related to a student’s field of study or career interest. Valley CAC interns are typically pursuing a degree in psychology, counseling, social work, pre-law, communications, or non-profit business administration, with priority given to Master’s level students. However, we are currently looking to expand our internship program to graphic design, marketing, and public relations students as well. Creating impactful internships that allow students to get an introduction to the multifaceted work done here at the CAC is a priority. Therefore, our application process is very selective.

APPLICATION DEADLINES:

Fall Internships:
Applications accepted March 1 through April 15.
Fall internship offers will be made on or before May 15.

Spring Internships:
Applications accepted September 1 through October 15.
