Your one-time or recurring donation can immediately help a child recovering from burns and his or her family. Here are several ways you can help now:
Make a Contribution
While much of our work is done by volunteers, the Fund employs staff and incurs costs as we provide assistance to the families we serve, train staff and volunteers, and operate the organization.
A corporate sponsorship of a Fund event, such as a group visit by recovering children to an attraction outside the hospital, is an extraordinary, cost-effective way to publicly demonstrate your company's commitment to the community. We depend on and look forward to recognizing the corporate financial and volunteer support the Fund receives.
The Fund accepts appropriate in-kind donations of goods and services. Tangible assets, such as materials, equipment, and food and beverages for events, are potentially tax deductible for donors. Donations could also include automobiles for auction, office supplies, silent and live auction items, and consulting services.
Many companies have workplace giving programs where employees are encouraged to make charitable contributions. Some companies offer an option for approved charitable donations to be deducted directly from employee paychecks or direct deposits. Some companies also have programs to match employee charitable donations to approved charities. This can be a way to double the benefit of your gift to the Fund.
Supporting the Fund's work in accordance with your tax and financial planning strategy makes a planned gift to the Fund worth considering. Among the popular planned giving options are will or bequest; gift annuity; stocks, bonds, and real estate; IRA and retirement plan assets; and charitable trust and gifts of life insurance.
Honor or Tribute Giving
An honor or tribute gift to the Fund is a thoughtful way to acknowledge someone who has touched your life, express sympathy for the loss of a special person, or to commemorate happy occasions and holidays. Upon receipt of your donation, the Fund will mail and acknowledgement to a person you designate to advise him or her of your gift in his or her name or in memory of a loved one. (The amount of your gift will not be disclosed.)
For more information on any of these options, please contact our executive staff or a board member. Thank you for your interest and support.
