Ways to Give

Gift of Cash:

This is the simplest way to contribute. Most gifts are made by check or credit card. Gifts in thanks for care or in honor of a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary are always thoughtful gifts. Those in memory of a loved one are a special tribute as well. Gifts are tax-deductible as provided by law.

Matching Gifts:

Many companies match, or even double match, their employees' gifts. Check with your employer, your spouse's employer or even the company from which you retired.

Appreciated Stock:

Northwest Family Services accepts the donation of appreciated securities which may offer the donor tax advantages. Contact the foundation office of your choice for more information.
