Ways to Give

Donate Online: Our online donation process is easy and secure.

Mail a Gift: Use our Gift Form.

Designated Gifts: We track all our donations carefully through SalesForce and in our accounting general ledger by the donor designation.  Our financials are audited every year and donor restrictions are reviewed. 

Give Stock: Gifts of stock are a smart way to help children and families while getting a break on your income taxes.

Greatest Needs: Put your dollars to work where they are most needed. By making your donation to the “greatest need” you help us with costs that other funding sources may not cover.

Employer Matching: Many local employers will match your donation to The Next Door, effectively doubling your impact. Check this list to see if your employer will match. Your employer may need our Tax ID # 93-0600421, and our IRS Nonprofit 501(c)(3) Determination Letter.

Shop? At least a couple ways to shop and give at the same time.

Give Services: When we save on services, we can put more into working with children & families. If you have a public relations, printing, or graphic design business and can offer savings or pro bono work we would like to talk with you.

Volunteer: Volunteering is a great way to give back & to learn more about The Next Door. See our volunteer page for current opportunities.

Host a Special Event: If you have an idea for hosting a special event to raise friends or funds we can help.

Donate Auction Items: Examples include: products, services, vacation rentals, trip packages, gift certificates for products, services, or dinners out, or gift baskets with themed items.

Business Sponsorships: Sponsor Bowl for Kids’ Sake or other events.

There are a lot of good causes you could help. Here are some reasons why The Next Door is a good choice for your giving.

10 Ways to Give Without Spending Money

1. If you like to party… invite your friends to a restaurant for a happy hour and ask the restaurant to donate 10 percent of proceeds.

2. If your friends are tired of being the subject of your photos and videos… most nonprofits need help with their marketing. You can offer to take pictures or help make a five-minute promo video.

3. If you were an English major… proofread a nonprofit’s annual report or marketing brochures.

4. If you are proud of your interior decorating… offer to host a nonprofit event at your home.

5. If you speak a foreign language… offer a one-hour lesson as a raffle item or for a nonprofit’s fundraising auction.

6. If you want to see what life looks like from a young, fresh perspective… sign up to be a mentor or a child advocate.

7. If you are Internet savvy… nonprofits can use your help with online marketing. Add them to social networking sites, redesign their email newsletter, or help them find a better off-the-shelf content management system.

8. If you like to sweat… raise money by walking/running/snowboarding/dancing at a fundraising event.

9. If you like to try new restaurants… look for “charity nights” at restaurants where proceeds of your meal go towards nonprofits.

10. If you like hanging out with your friends… invite a friend to volunteer with you.
