Ways to Give
New Hope Center for Grief Support is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization which relies on individual and community support. We receive no state or federal funding. Donations are tax deductible and will allow New Hope to continue to support bereaved individuals who seek our services in the future. You can help by contributing in a variety of ways.
A Gift of Hope
This little grief book is packed with helpful information. It's a great gift for someone who has recently lost a loved one. The cost is only $1 and can be purchased by calling New Hope. This book was made possible by Deb Bonde in memory of her daughter, Anna.
Sustaining members are donors who support New Hope by making monthloy contributions of $25 (Bronze), $50 (Silver) or $100 (Gold) through electronic funds transfer. These donations provide a steady stream of predictable income. Please call or e-mail our office and ask to have a form sent or e-mailed to you.
Memorials and Tributes
Many people choose to memorialize a loved one who has died or honor someone on a special occasion by making a donation to New Hope. A letter is sent to the family of the deceased loved one or to the honoree acknowledging your gift. Some have even asked for donations to be made to New Hope in honor of their own special occasion such as a wedding.
In-kind gifts may be used for silent auctions for fundraising, or items that we need for the operation of New Hope services. Possibilities for silent auction donations include tickets for airline travel, concerts or sporting events; travel packages for lodging and meals for two or more; adventure opportunities such as skiing, horseback riding, ballooning, golf, or spa treatments. Items that can be used for the operation of New Hope include services such as printing or graphic design, beverages such as soft drinks or bottled water. Just about anything used in an office is also welcomed - copy paper, toner, ink pens, file folders, name tags, postage, labels, etc.
United Way Giving & Matching Funds
October is the time that many companies ask employees to make a contribution to the United Way. Many people don't know that they can designate a local charity to be the recipient of their United Way contribution. If you'd like New Hope Center for Grief Support to receive your donation, check with your Human Resource Department to see what you need to do, then let us know so that we can add you to our list of United Way contributors. Another way that some of you can double your contribution to New Hope is to request that your employer match your tax-deductible gift to us. Many employers have matching gift programs, but few employees actually take advantage of this opportunity.
Churches can sponsor grief workshops and seminars as an outreach into the community.
New Hope Legacy Fund
In 2009, New Hope established the New Hope Legacy Fund as a way for donors to give charitable dollars more effectively.
Your will is the perfect place to remember New Hope Center for Grief Support. After you have taken care of your final expenses and your family, you may want to designate that a specific amount or a percentage of your estate go to New Hope. This will enable us to continue providing grief support services to families like yours who are grieving. Your donation can be cash, which is always acceptable. However, a possible tax advantage to you and to us would be donations of your appreciated stock. In other words, stock that has gone up in value is a great way for you to make a donation.
