Ensure that child protection is your legacy. 

For family and friends, tribute gifts can be an especially meaningful way to commemorate or celebrate a loved one while showing your commitment to prevention. No matter the size of the gift, a tribute or memorial gift ensures that a loved one will be honored through the protection of children for years to come.

Tributes and Memorial Gifts

Tributes and memorial gifts are a meaningful way to recognize and remember a friend or family member. Tribute gifts recognize someone close to you, and include a notification sent to the honoree. Memorial gifts recognize the life and memory of a friend or family member.

Both tribute and memorial gifts are available year-round. For a minimum gift of $25, Christmas cards can be sent during the holidays with an honor or memorial message.
For more information about tributes or memorials, contact Cathy Townsend by email or at (843) 513-1616.

Legacy Gifts

Even after you’re gone, your gift to Darkness to Light can continue to protect children for the future. Consider a legacy gift in your estate planning.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of stock are beneficial, both to the donor and to our prevention efforts. For example, contributions of appreciated securities held for over a year are generally deductible at market value, regardless of what the donor paid for them; also, the capital gains tax is avoided through such a gift.

To start your gift, please contact Cathy Townsend with complete donor information (name, address, phone number), the name and type of securities to be gifted (public, private, restricted, mutual fund, etc.), the number of shares, and the date you intend to make the gift.
