CCS Life Fund
Share your values and your blessings with vulnerable children and their families while receiving income for life
Shares in the Life Fund Available Through Year End
Thousands of children in our community struggle with homelessness, poverty, trauma and disabilities, and are unable to receive services they need. The CCS Life Fund was created to help provide a solution. Investors purchase shares in the new family resource and child development center on Portland Road in Salem and receive tax benefits and a share in the rent. Recently dedicated as the Seymour Center for Children & Families, the Center is designed to increase access to existing community services and care providers by bringing them together in a single, convenient location.
How it Works
To become a member, you purchase shares of the Fund with your appreciated real estate, cash, marketable securities or other assets and, in return, the Fund pays you a quarterly income for life. At the end of life, your share in the Fund will be donated to Catholic Community Services to continue sharing your values and blessings.
