Help Support a Family During COVID-19
During this time of uncertainty, what has become apparent to us is the needs of youth and families who are being laid off, having to self-isolate or required to stay home for various reasons. This has obviously has created a financial strain on families who struggle during stable times as well as those who have never faced a situation like this. If you have the means and are wanting to help, we would like to offer these families gift cards, food and supplies while they wait for the financial support they may receive through government programs. If you are looking for a way to help, we are asking individuals and business to “Adopt a Family”. We are happy to provide you with more information on this program if you are interested.

Personal & Planned Giving
Donating publicly traded securities and mutual funds allows you to amplify the impact of your gift so that you can make a big difference in the lives of our children, youth and their families. By donating securities you receive a double tax benefit – you eliminate the capital gains tax you‘d have to pay if you sold your appreciated securities, and you receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation. A gift of securities, therefore, benefits you more than giving cash, and allows you to make a larger gift.
- Allows you to amplify the impact of your gift
- You pay no tax on the capital gains that have accumulated on the securities
- You receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation
- Your donation of securities can cover your annual donation or support a specific project
