1) Outright Gifts

Outright gifts are especially welcome because they can be used immediately to meet Cadbury’s current needs. Such a gift may be made in one year or as a multi-year pledge given over a three to five year period. All such gifts are tax-deductible. The actual deduction depends on individual circumstances. A gift or pledge payment may take the form of cash, appreciated property (such as securities or real estate), or many kinds of personal properties with a marketable value.

  • Gifts of Cash

Gifts of cash are fully deductible up to 50% of a donor’s adjusted gross income. Any excess can be carried over for up to five years.

  • Gifts of Appreciated Property

Gifts of appreciated property provide a great opportunity to realize favorable tax benefits. The most favorable tax benefits are generated by contributions of appreciated long-term capital gain securities and real estate.

2) Planned Gifts

A planned or deferred gift is one that is arranged during one’s lifetime, but the benefits to Cadbury are deferred to a future date. Planned giving is important to the future of Cadbury. In addition, a donor may receive a number of advantages such as immediate tax benefits or lower estate taxes.

  • Charitable Gift Annuity

A charitable gift annuity provides an immediate federal income tax deduction and a fixed lifetime income payment, some of which might be free from federal income tax. Annuity rates are tied directly to the age of the income beneficiary at the time the gift is made. The older the annuitant at the time of the gift, the higher the rate. The minimum gift for an annuity is $10,000.

  • Life Insurance

A gift of life insurance can provide a significant charitable deduction. You could purchase a new policy or donate a policy that you currently own but no longer need. If you have paid some of the premiums, but not all, you may claim a deduction on the present value of the policy (generally the cash surrender value).

3) Bequests

A bequest to Cadbury is a gift everyone can make through their will. It involves no immediate loss of capital or income.

Sample wording for persons who may wish to make a bequest to Cadbury Senior Lifestyles:


“I give and bequeath the sum of $ ____ to Cadbury Senior Lifestyles.”


“I give, devise and bequeath to Cadbury Senior Lifestyles (all, or ____ %, or a specific fraction) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal.”
