10 Ways To Give
Here are 10 ways that you can make a vital difference in the lives of our disabled Veterans. We thank all those who’ve supported us and will support us in the future. The simple truth is that we couldn’t do this important work without you!
1. HEARTS OF HONOR CLUB
This is a monthly recurring donation program that anyone can sign up for right from our website. For as little as $25 per month you can become a Hearts of Honor member. Sign up HERE.
There is an EVENTS tab on our website where all events scheduled for the year can be seen. These are fundraising events hosted by PHH and for which sponsorship opportunities are available. Does your company want to be the title sponsor for a golf tournament, a 5k run or another event? We can make that happen.
3. ESTATE PLANNING
Purple Heart Homes has been willed homes, cars, stocks, bonds, and other assets that might be part of an estate. This is a great way to leave a legacy of helping Veterans. This process will need to begin with your attorney.
4. EMPLOYEE GIVING AND COMPANY MATCH
Does your company offer a way to give to a charitable cause? Many companies do and many of those companies will match all or a portion of what the employee gives. This is a seamless way to give through payroll deductions and if the company offers a match, that’s a bonus.
5. DONOR ADVISED FUNDS (DAF)
Many money management firms and banks have a charitable arm. If you have investment accounts, and want to donate a portion to charity, the DAF is a way to have your charitable assets professionally managed and distributed to your designated charities. Ask your financial advisor about this program.
6. COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN (CFC)
There are 9.1 million federal employees and contractors. Are you one of them? Every fall there is a CFC solicitation period where charities are selected for federal employee giving. If you or anyone you know are federal employees and want to give to Purple Heart Homes our CFC number is 96852.
7. IN KIND DONATIONS
These are non-cash donations of materials or services that fit our mission of providing critical home repair for our Veterans in need. Examples would be lumber, plywood, roofing material, flooring, etc. It could be professional trades services like plumbing, electrical, or HVAC services. Donations of this type are of great assistance.
Ahhh, Grants! Careers are built around writing grants. Does your company, organization, or charitable foundation offer grants for Veterans, Housing, or Human Services? Do you know anyone who works for a charitable foundation? If the answer is yes to either, please give us a mention or contact us with the opportunity and we’ll take it from there.
9. CORPORATE AND VOLUNTEER SUPPORT
Many businesses contact us and want to make a donation. As part of this donation the business and a group of employee volunteers want to work on a project as a teambuilding event, a community service effort, or for community outreach. These are great ways for PHH and the partner organization to come together to do good in the community while learning about and supporting each other.
10. INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISING EVENTS
Want to set up a lemonade stand, hold a raffle, organize a golf tournament, bike ride, motorcycle rally, or any other event you can think of that will raise money? Your imagination is the limit for individual fundraising events. These are great ways to not only generate financial support, but to have some fun while doing so.
