When it comes to supporting the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor (CSC), one of the simplest and most effective ways to make a difference is through a gift of cash. It’s a straightforward way to contribute, and the impact is immense. Here are some ways cash can be used to support the valuable work carried out by CSC:


Outright Gift: You can make an immediate cash donation by writing a check, using a credit card, or setting up an automatic transfer from your bank account. By doing so, you directly assist CSC in meeting its most urgent needs and fulfilling its mission on a day-to-day basis. Witnessing your generosity in action is truly rewarding, and you’ll also be eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize your taxes.



1. Seek the advice of your financial or legal advisor to make arrangements for a gift of any amount to the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor through your will or other estate planning documents.


2.  Alert the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor of your gift by completing a Letter of Gift Intent. The form can be completed online or downloaded and mailed to the Cancer Support Community.

Payable on Death (POD) Account: Another option is to create a POD bank account or certificate of deposit, designating one or more individuals or charities as beneficiaries to receive the funds after your passing. Until that time, you retain complete control over the account and are free to use the funds as you wish, whether it’s to make changes to the beneficiary or close the account.


Aside from these methods, there are several other ways you can make cash donations and explore different gift types.
