How to Help


Honor a friend or loved one.
Honor a friend, loved one, mentor or teacher with a special gift in his or her name.

Stocks and Assets
Gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other appreciated securities are a strategic way to support Communities In Schools while securing tax benefits to maximize your support.
Appreciated securities held longer than a year may be eligible for a full fair-market charitable deduction; by donating these securities to Communities In Schools, you can avoid capital gains taxes that would be due if you sold them.
To Make a Gift of Appreciated Securities
Contact Cynthia Langley at Communities In Schools of Carrollton/Carroll at 678-664-0536 or
info@ciscarroll.org to receive electronic transfer instructions.
We ask that you or your broker notify Communities In Schools of your intention to make a gift of appreciated securities to ensure proper and prompt acknowledgement of your support.  
When a brokerage firm initiates a stock transfer, we receive the identifying information of the firm but are not guaranteed identifying information about the donor. Providing us with these identifying details ahead of time—either from you the donor or relayed through your broker— will ensure our ability to appropriately credit your generosity.


Planned Giving
In partnership with Communities In Schools of Carrollton City and Carroll Co., you can leave a legacy that will affect sustainable change in the lives of underserved students across the country for years to come.
Planned gifts create reliable funding streams, ensuring CIS has sustainable resources to support our mission in reaching the students in need of our services. Additionally, planned gifts to CIS are a fantastic way to both demonstrate your legacy of support for education equality while also securing personal tax benefits for your future plans.
