Naming Opportunities

Anderson is offers naming opportunities to honor a family member or other loved one. This is a meaningful way to support Anderson while also recognizing someone in perpetuity. The following is a list of options currently available.

Contact us at (845)889-9594 to discuss your wishes.

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

We knew that he was an incredibly adaptable, very bright boy, but even we couldn’t have predicted the amazing transformation he would undergo at Anderson Center. The aggressive behaviors that he once exhibited, common to many children with autism, just aren’t there now. He has learned how to calm himself down and as of three months ago, he no longer needs previously prescribed medications. And, most importantly, Karl is happy and content.
