Become a Sustainers Circle Member today. Join our monthly giving program, which allows you to make your gift over a year’s time.
This opportunity allows individuals to make monthly donations. For many people, becoming a member of the Sustainers Circle:
- Makes it easier to budget a monthly gift
- Enables a greater impact than making a one-time donation.
- Provides convenience. No need to write checks and no payments to remember.
- Allows efficiencies. Save on postage and paper. You will not receive solicitations, just information through our quarterly newsletter.
- Makes it flexible. You decide how much to give each month. And because it’s paperless, more of your donation goes directly to purchasing food.
TRIBUTE AND MEMORIAL GIFTS
Establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor a person or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or holiday. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to that special person and will contribute to the mission of Meals on Wheels People.
Give a gift in honor of a loved one or to celebrate a milestone achievement or a memorial gift of someone who has passed away and is remembered by requesting donations in lieu of flowers.
DONOR ADVISED FUNDS
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.
How it works:
Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program (such as the Oregon Community Foundation, Community Foundation of Southwest Washington, Fidelity Charitable or Schwab Charitable)
Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free).
Recommend grants to qualified charities of your choice (such as Meals on Wheels People).
Become a corporate partner and help us change lives, one meal at a time. Our corporate partners sponsor events, donate a percentage of sales from designated products, include us in their advertising campaigns, add our logo to their products and help deliver Meals on Wheels.
