Make a Gift . . . Change a Life

The Salvation Army’s local programs and services are made possible through gifts from local individuals, businesses, organizations, and foundations. Your gifts will help us provide assistance with food, clothing, shelter, emergency assistance, educational & enrichment programs for disadvantaged youth, and other services within your local community.


  • Information to assist you in making an educated decision to ensure your gift achieves your philanthropic goals. They can discuss tax-wise ways to lend your support and other ways to become involved.
  • Regular updates on the work of The Salvation Army in your local community, including the number of individuals and families assisted by your gift.
  • Personalized service. Resource Development Directors will walk you through the gifting process, from gift designation to receipting. We will also interact with your brokers to assist in the gifting of appreciated assets such as stock and mutual funds.
