Other Ways to Give
Smile.Amazon.com – You Shop, Amazon gives. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to Interfaith Housing Services whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.com. It is the same Amazon you know, same products, same prices, same service. Simply visit www.smile.amazon.com, look for our logo and select Interfaith Housing Services as your charity of choice.
In Kind Donations/Goods and Services – Sometimes instead of giving money to a charity to buy needed goods, the goods themselves are given, these are called in-kind donations. These can take on many forms such as new building supplies, property, vehicles, professional services, airline miles, household items, postage, contributions of printing, shipping and other necessary services.
Employer Matching Campaign – Give your employer a chance to participate in your philanthropic commitment by matching your contribution. You may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift!
Work Place Giving – Support Interfaith Housing Services by giving charitable contributions through payroll deductions. All donations through the workplace giving program are tax-deductible. Please contact your Human Resources Department to find out if your company participates in employee-designated giving.
United Way – If you participate in a United Way campaign that allows donor designations, you may be able to select Housing Works, Inc. as the beneficiary of your payroll deduction gift(s). Please contact the United Way campaign coordinator at your company to see if you can write-in Housing Works, Inc. as the beneficiary of your gift(s).
Corporate Partnership – Partner with us through product donations, financial support or mobilizing employees as Interfaith Housing Services volunteers.
Hold a Fundraising Event – Get a group of friends, family, or colleagues from work together and spend time making a difference in the lives of the homeless. Here are a few suggestions to get you started; garage sale, company barbeque and collect free will offerings for Interfaith Housing Services, ask your friends and family to make a donation to IHS for your birthday, anniversary or other special event or host a gathering in your home and invite a speaker from IHS to come share our story – encourage each guest to make a donation.
Donating Real Estate Property – Interfaith Housing Services is almost always in need of property. If you have a house or vacant lot that you no longer need and are looking for a charitable tax donation, please let us know. Approximately ten homes and lots have been donated for our Special Needs Rental Program and First Home Ownership Program. Those donations are now providing affordable housing for people in our community. If you own a property that could provide housing for someone in need, please consider donating it to IHS.
For more information on how to donate to IHS, please contact:
