Stock Donations

The Comprehensive Learning Center is set up to receive stock donations. These donations are greatly appreciated and enable a donor to:

  • Avoid all capital gains tax on the appreciated portion of the stock;
  • Qualify for tax deductions equal to the stock's full fair-market value;
  • Make a larger gift than may not otherwise be possible.

It is our policy to liquidate and sell stock when it is received. The resultant funds will be deposited directly into our stock brokerage account at Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. Please contact us for directions on how to transfer stock donations. You will receive a detailed acknowledgment of your donation once all transactions have been completed.

Please feel free to call 215-956-3861 or email mknott@clcschoolprograms.org if you have any questions in this regard.

Vehicle Donations

CLC is enrolled in a program by which individuals may donate used vehicles (e.g., cars, boats, motorcycles, etc.). CLC will benefit from the sale of a donated vehicle at either auction or as junk. Motorized vehicles do not need to be in good running condition, but must be accompanied with a title. All donations are tax deductible. Please contact Melanie Knott, Development Coordinator at 215-956-3861 or email mknott@clcschoolprograms.org if you have any questions in regards to vehicle donations. 

Sponsorship Opportunities

If you would like to acknowledge a celebratory life event, such as a milestone anniversary or birthday, an achievement by a very special someone in your life, or a memorial dedication to a loved on who has passed, CLC has varying levels of sponsorship opportunities for you to express your thoughts, well wishes, gratitude and memories. 

All of our sponsorship levels have dedication pieces that can be engraved with your special message to make your donation more personable. The sponsorship dedication pieced include:

  • Engraved plaques (silver, bronze, or gold) installed outside the sponsored room
  • Engraved leaf (bronze or gold) added to CLC's Giving Tree in the main lobby
  • Engraved brick placed outside in CLC's Friends and Family Walkway
  • Engraved piece of the puzzle added to CLC's group plaque

Please contact Melanie Knott, Development Coordinator at 215-956-3861 or by email at mknott@clcschoolprograms.org to learn more about sponsorship opportunties. 

Grants

The Comprehensive Learning Center explores grant-writing opportunities as another means of raising funds for the continued growth and expansion of our program. If you have contacts with a foundation, charitable trust, or company that awards grant money to non-profit educational institutions, please let us know by contacting Melanie Knott, Development Coordinator at 215-956-3861 or by email at mknott@clcschoolprograms.org. 

EITC

Would you rather have your business donate to CLC or pay taxes to the government? The PA Department of Community & Economic Development allows businesses the opportunity to assist in the education of our students by donating to CLC's Scholarship Organization and/or Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization. The donations serve as Tax Credits towards your company's annual Business Tax. Please click here to learn more.

Raising Awareness & Funds

The AJ Foundation conducts fundraising activities throughout the year to help offset the operational costs and facilitate the growth and expansion of CLC, as well as to offer support to other autism initiatives. These special events also help support our continued efforts to inform the general public about autism and today's most effective teaching methods for individuals with autism. Donations are also greatly appreciated!

Sponsor an Event

Sponsoring an event is a great way for companies to show the community their support, get public recognition, drive retail traffic and build community networks while helping The AJ Foundation meet its critical fundraising goals. We hold five major fundraisers each year that provide sponsorship opportunities. In addition to financial support, sponsorships can include donations of equipment, event prizes and other products and services. Call or email us today with your questions or suggestions on how your organization can benefit from becoming an official AJ Foundation sponsor.
