You can make a difference by donating to OCRC.
The Orange Caregiver Resource Center (OCRC) enhances the quality of life
for family caregivers by helping families and the community master the
challenges of caregiving. Your gift will help us to maintain our operations
so that all grant funds can provide caregivers with a much needed break,
counseling, consultation, and other services and will enhance the services
we offer. Gifts to OCRC are handled by the St. Jude Memorial Foundation.
Gifts are ear-marked strictly for OCRC activities. As a program of St.
Jude Medical Center, OCRC offers a variety of opportunities for supporting
care for family caregivers. Your gift can be an acknowledgment of the
excellent services provided by OCRC, to pay tribute to a special person,
or in memory of a loved one.
Gifts of Cash
A cash gift may be made by check or credit card and is the simplest and
most common form of charitable contribution. This type of gift provides
a tax deduction on your itemized tax return for the full amount given.
The Memorial Foundation accepts donations of appreciated securities or
real estate. Such gifts offer tax advantages to the donor and can be designated
for OCRC for family caregiving concerns.
Planned giving presents options for the donor to support OCRC through the
St. Jude Memorial Foundation while meeting personal long-term financial
and estate goals. Depending on the type of deferred gift, from the simple
bequest to the charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust,
benefits may include increased income, immediate income tax deduction,
as well as capital gain, estate and gift tax avoidance.
