Your gift to Children’s Aid Society changes a child’s life. By making a donation you give a young child a safe place to sleep in our Crisis Nursery. You give a teenager the chance to tell her story of abuse to a compassionate and professional therapist. You help a parent learn better ways of caring for their child. You make life better for others.
Your gift touches many lives and makes them stronger.
OTHER WAYS TO HELP
Your gifts of items such as art supplies, groceries, and diapers mean we don’t have to buy them and that saves us money – View Our Wish List
We count on our volunteers to help with events, building maintenance, Parent Support Groups, in our nursery, and with special projects. If you have an hour or two to spare and you want to make your community a better place for children to live, complete our Volunteer Application.
Host a Third Party Event
Your church group, your club, or even your family can host an event that benefits one of our centers. Some examples are: the 93 year old who asked that friends and family make donations to Children’s Aid Society instead of giving her presents on her 94th birthday, the sorority that held a pancake breakfast with the proceeds benefiting The Lehman Center, and the church that got its congregation to stuff a van full of paper products, including 4,002 diapers!
Pray for us
The children and families who come to us for help need your prayers as do the volunteers and staff who work to carry out our mission.
Make a gift in honor or in memory of someone who supports children’s services. Make a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary an opportunity to raise funds for Children’s Aid Society by asking for donations instead of gifts.
A legacy gift
Remember Children’s Aid Society in your will, make us the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or trust, or consider an annuity that will provide you with income during your lifetime and benefit children. Gifts to Children’s Aid Society’s endowment funds make sure that your support for helping at-risk children continues after your lifetime. Planned gifts in memory of a loved one are a thoughtful way to continue their legacy for generations to come. Donors who make a planned gift to Children’s Aid Society are recognized for their generosity with membership in Children’s Aid Society’s 1913 Society.
