Contributions for the Mission’s work are its lifeline: annual giving supports up to a third of all that goes on in a year. This is one of the most meaningful ways to give—you can earmark your annual gift for a specific program area or give unconditionally.

The Mission is pleased to introduce the opportunity for you to establish personalized funds that carry your family name or a name of your choice. Funds will provide support for specific programs and operations.

Deferred gifts, such as legacies by bequest, are crucial to the Mission’s future. If you believe in the Mission’s work and importance—and you have the means—consider naming the Mission in your will or estate plan. You may use a standard bequest clause without sharing your plans, but discussing your interests with a Mission staff member helps ensure your wishes are known and carried out in the future.

Real estate and other tangible property are very good charitable gifts, often bringing tax advantages.

Gifts of securities can also bring tax advantages. The Mission is pleased to accept stock gifts. Go to ‘Ways to Give Gifts of Stock’ for more specifics.

Enjoy life income through a charitable trust, knowing your trust remainder will support the programs you are passionate about now.
