In Kind Donations
There are many ways to donate…
Donations of goods and services are extremely valuable to us. Anything with a value is income for a charity and tax deductible for the donor.
Gift Bag Items Needed – The gift bags we give away to each individual we visit is one of our largest expenses. Our goal is to get all items for our 27,000+ gift bags donated.
All items must be brand new – no amount is too big or too small!
Charitable donations may be made by individuals or corporations.
Individuals – Volunteers, schools, Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts, religious organizations, offices, clubs, friends and neighbors can conduct a drive and collect the multitude of items we need!
Corporations – Manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers, merchants or other commercial groups may donate from their inventory.
Our annual Clambake and Golf Outing rely heavily on donated gifts for the silent and live auctions.
Golf Outing – Golfers like to play new or select courses. A donation of a foursome and lunch at your club is always an attraction and a way to meet new people. Tickets to sporting events are always very popular. If you have access to season tickets, any sport, any team, they’ll get multiple bids.
Clambake – Bottles of wine for our popular “wine pull,” specialty items for gift baskets, restaurant gift certificates, jewelry, spa services, artwork, lessons, show tickets and many other items or ideas are great attention getters.
Live Auctions – Trips, airfare and use of your vacation getaway are exciting and different. When the winner gets something they couldn’t buy in the store, they feel great. They not only receive a great value, they also feel good about supporting our cause.
Silent Auctions – Guests who attend charity events always check out the auction items for something they might find appealing and those who donate the prizes get their name recognition as supporters.
