Donations

Help keep Cranberry House vibrant with donations to the Operating Fund, or to specific-purpose funds.  Express your preference by donating to one or more of the following:

Make donations (and become a member) using the Membership/Donation form.

GCIHS is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.  Your gift of money or stock goes directly to the society, with no middle-men and no Officers' salaries diluting your generosity.

There are significant capital gains tax savings in donating stock that has appreciated, rather than selling it and donating cash.  Stock certificates can be deposited into our stock account listed in Contact Us or on the Friend/Donation form.

Buy a piece of Cranberry House

All donations, large or small, yield the satisfaction of enriching the community, but substantial donors also get significant tax benefits, plus lasting recognition through a permanent named remembrance item. Your name, or that of a loved one, will be engraved on a plaque by the item—to remind future generations of your thoughtful support.
