Ways to Give
Give to the Judson Brighter Futures Fund!
A gift today will provide essentials to help children and their families live healthy, stable and positive lives, right here in our backyard. Judson Center is more than hope, it’s help. Together, we will help those in need succeed !
For example, a donation of $120 will:
- Provide life-changing Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy to a child like Kyle, three-years-old, recently diagnosed with autism
- Secure a warm bed in a nurturing environment for 11-year-old Carly who has experienced unthinkable abuse
- Provide job-skill training for young adults, like Joe, Matt and Lisa focusing on their abilities, not disabilities
- Help Sydney, a child in foster care realize her potential and value through intensive therapy and care
Since 1924, Judson Center has been creating better lives and brighter futures for children and families in our community. By leaving a planned gift, you will support our work for generations to come. It is one of the simplest ways to provide support for our future.
A properly drafted will or other planned giving channels can minimize estate costs and taxes, ensure that your property is managed the way you want, and provide for your spouse, children, and grandchildren.
You may be surprised to learn that your will can also be a flexible way to help keep the critical work of Judson Center moving forward after your family’s needs have been met.

One of the most tax-efficient ways to give is making a gift of appreciated stock.
There are many benefits of giving the gift of appreciated stock:
- Outright gifts like gifting appreciated stocks are the easiest way of giving, as there are no setup costs or lasting considerations, such as ongoing management.
- Capital gains taxes on the stock are avoided.
- Eligible to receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair-market-value of the stock at the time of the gift
- The satisfaction of knowing your money is invested in a cause important to you.
Judson Center accepts all forms of securities that include: stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

Holiday Wish is an annual campaign that begins in November and fulfills wishes of those we serve for the holidays. Each wish fulfilled is much more than a gift – it is comfort and happiness to children who are in foster care. It provides an opportunity for the young adults in our care to be a part of the spirit of the season, to be included, not excluded because of an intellectual or physical disability. It allows for families to have a happy and memorable holiday season full of good times and laughter. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Holiday Wish 2020 information is now available.
For more information, please contact Peggy Kerr at email@example.com or 248.837.2019.
