There is little doubt that economic challenges of recent years have greatly impacted donations to nonprofit organizations. Yet, the needs of our organization are tremendous. The reality is that our residents need care; they need to learn; and all need to feel loved. Now more than ever, we need a hand in order to continue our hands-on care.
We are grateful for every dollar we receive – for every dollar offers a treatment, a smile, a special moment or an answer to a prayer.

So often, many of us offer a charitable donation without ever giving much thought as to how the money will be spent. Rest assured that your tax-deductible financial gift, regardless of its size, will truly go a long way in making a difference in the differently-able lives, hearts and minds of a Holy Angels resident.
As Many Ways To Give As There Are Needs
Corporate contributions, one-time individual gifts, gifts of stock, planned gifts and bequests, memorial and honor gifts – there are almost as many variations to give as there are needs to be met. Won’t you please consider one of the many options to give and make a difference in the smile and life of a Holy Angels resident?
Individual Or Corporation Donations: Perhaps the simplest way to care, your cash or check made payable to the Holy Angels Foundation guarantees the purchase of a needed piece of equipment for a resident or an enhancement to an existing program.
Honor Or Memorial Giving: Birthdays, graduations, promotions, anniversaries – we’ll send a lovely note card to a friend or family member that you designate to let them know of your honor gift to Holy Angels on their behalf. Memorial gifts are an appropriate and meaningful way to remember the life of a loved one or friend with a gift to Holy Angels.
Guardian Angel Program: Guardian Angel Membership is for those who make a $100 annual gift to the Mother Mary Benignus Hoban Endowment Fund. This important fund honors the efforts of Holy Angels cofounder Mother Benignus and was created to ensure the future of our organization.
Planned Giving, Estate Planning, Bequests & Trusts: To allow us to continue our work creating an environment that fosters loving and compassionate care, innovative learning programs, and opportunities for dignified living for the differently able, we encourage you to consider a gift to the Holy Angels Foundation in your overall estate and financial plans.

Matching Gifts: Double your donated dollars by participating in your company’s matching gift program! Companies of all different sizes are now matching their employees’ donations. Check with your HR department to see if your company will match your donation to Holy Angels. Many companies have their matching gift forms online. Holy Angels will confirm your gift with your company. Examples of companies that match Holy Angels donations include Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Duke Energy, Microsoft, Goulston Technologies and GE.
Gifts-In-Kind: Some individuals, companies or other organizations donate needed goods, such as: new clothes and shoes, physical therapy equipment, wheelchairs, medical equipment, books, recreational and sensory toys, greenhouse supplies, supplies for Cherubs Café and Candy Bouquet, food and office supplies and equipment, tickets for community events and more.
Services & Personal Care Donations: Individuals and businesses alike support our needs through the donations of their services. This includes haircuts, dry cleaning, cleaning services, repair of equipment and vehicles – we welcome the donation of your talents and skills. We also welcome the efforts of schools, churches, businesses and organizations who collect personal care items for our residents.
Special Events: Holy Angels is grateful when individuals, organizations and companies want to raise money to help us provide for our programs and services. Special Event Requests, regardless of size, must be consistent with the spirit and tone of the organization, the image we want to communicate in the community and should not conflict with other Holy Angels events.
