We make it easy for anyone to give because every single gift matters. You can designate your gift to a specific fund, or establish your own named fund. Gifts can also be a memorial or honor tribute for someone special in your life. No matter how you choose to donate, your generosity will make a tangible difference.

Step 1: Browse our funds (or establish one)

Step 2: Make a donation online, in person, or by mail

Step 3: Know that your gift makes a difference for generations
