GIVING AND DONATIONS

Explore the ways you can help give a better life.

A financial gift is the best way to help Sycamores make an impact for the people we serve. While government contracts  fund many of our programs and services, other critical resources and offerings are made possible through generous donations from people and organizations committed to expanding mental health offerings. Together, we’ll increase access to basic resources that support education, make housing a reality for those who need it, and connect individuals with countless other necessities and systems of support. Your contributions make a tangible difference — join us in creating better lives for individuals in our communities.

Deliver an immediate impact and make an online donation.

>>Individual donations are everything.
Government contracts provide the services, but they’re limited and have pretty rigid boundaries. If you’re caring for people like you would care for your own children, expenses arise that are not covered – that’s when we use donations. <<

There are many ways to help give a better life beyond donations

Shop to Help
Discover organizations that will donate a portion of the proceeds raised from your shopping to Sycamores.

Sycamores is grateful to be able to partner with companies who generate donations while you go grocery shopping, shop for gifts and more.

DIY Fundraising

Support Sycamores by creating your very own customized fundraiser!

Have your network of friends, family and community members donate to your cause, recognize an awareness month, or host your very own fundraising event.
Matching Programs

Set up a dollar-for-dollar match program for your employees’ gifts, making an even greater impact.

Many generous corporations have created matching gift programs to support nonprofits while also encouraging their employees to give back. When a corporation matches an employee’s gift, it is generally a dollar-for-dollar match, doubling the original gift to the nonprofit.

Gift-In-Kind

Care for the Sycamores community by providing essential items, toys, gift cards and more.

We accept new and gently used items to distribute to the children, young adults, adults and families we serve.

Stock Donations

Choose to make a gift through stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares.

For stocks that have appreciated in value and have been held by the donor for over 12 months, the donor’s tax deduction will be equal to the fair market value of the stock on the day it is donated (assuming the donor itemizes their taxes). Another benefit is that the donor also avoids capital gains tax.

Corporate Gifts

Give a corporate donation through cash and specific in-kind items.

These often include serving as a generous sponsor at our Celebrating Children Spring Gala or providing matching gifts for donations made by their employees.

Planned and Estate Gifts

We invite you to plan your legacy now.

At Sycamores we create opportunities for a brighter future for children, young adults and families in need. Give future generations the same opportunities for a better life by including Sycamores in your estate planning.

Holiday Giving
Brighten the holidays for deserving children, young adults and families in our community.
During the holiday season, kind-hearted individuals, businesses, and other organizations generously donate gifts to help approximately 500 of the children, young adults, and families in need that we serve each year.

Sycamores is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Federal Tax ID # 95-1691005.
