In Kind Donations
Instead of money
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 24,000+ 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 – Baskets of wine, 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.
