General Donations

We accept all forms of gifts to our general unrestricted fund, from cash, check and credit card payments, to stock gifts and other assets. A cash gift offers the highest federal income tax deduction and can have an even greater impact if your employer offers a matching gifts program.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Memorial and honorary gifts provide you with a meaningful way to honor and celebrate the life of a loved one. The family/individual being honored or remembered is sent an acknowledgement that notes your name as making a contribution.

Matching Gifts

Many employers match the charitable donations their employees make. If your company has such a program, request a matching gift form from your employer to maximize your donation.

In-Kind Gifts and Pro Bono Services

Some companies donate their products or offer their services on a free “pro bono” basis. We appreciate these kinds of donations as they help enhance our programs. These donations of products or valuable services help us accomplish our mission.
