Recurring Gifts

Set it and forget it! When you click the Donate button, you'll have the chance to set up a recurring gift. A little bit each month goes a long way and you'll never notice it's gone! 


Make a donation in honor of an occasion or in memory of someone special. We'll send a letter to the honoree or designated recipient to let them know you're thinking of them. This gift lasts a lot longer than flowers.


If you or someone you know manages a family or corporate foundation, we should talk. Contact us and we'll tell you a story or two that will make you a believer.
