Ways to give


We believe that giving is a deeply personal and meaningful choice. No matter how you choose to give, your commitment to making the world a better place is what truly matters.

Everyone has unique ways of contributing to causes they care about. No matter your preference, you can find a way to give that aligns with your values and passions.


Financial Giving

Financial giving is a direct and impactful way to support the causes you're passionate about. Your financial support not only helps address immediate needs but also ensures the sustainability and growth of our programs and services.

  • One-Time Giving: Make a single, immediate contribution to support a specific project or ongoing work.

  • Monthly Giving: Set up recurring donations to provide consistent support to a cause close to your heart.

  • Memorial Giving:

  • Fundraising Campaigns: Support or participate in fundraising events, campaigns, or challenges organized by nonprofits. We often mail/email these to you, and sometimes even post them on our social media.

You can give financially through our online Donation Portal, drop off, or mail your gift to our office.


In-Kind Giving

In-kind giving allows you to make a tangible difference by donating goods, services, or expertise to those in need. In-kind giving is a compassionate and hands-on approach to philanthropy that not only supports vital causes but also promotes sustainability and community well-being.

  • Donating Goods: Contribute tangible items such as shelf-stable, pre-packaged, or fresh foods/ingredients, pet food, and office supplies.

  • Donating Vehicles: When you donate a vehicle, such as a car, truck, or even a boat, you provide a valuable asset we can use to fund our programs and initiatives

  • Donating to Drives: Sometimes, we run a drive for specific items or resources to support a targeted cause or campaign. We have run drives for socks, slippers, blankets, fans, and even pet food. 

  • Services and Expertise: Offer your professional skills, knowledge, or expertise on a volunteer basis.

You can drop off or mail your in-kind gift to our office. We kindly ask that you call our office or email tdorman@mowsc.org to fill out an In-Kind Form.


Legacy Giving

By designating a portion of your assets or estate to charitable organizations, you ensure that your values and support continue even after your lifetime.

  • Bequests: Include a nonprofit in your will or estate plan to leave a lasting legacy.

  • Gifts of Stock or Assets: Donate stocks, real estate, or other valuable assets to support a charitable cause.


Time and Volunteering

Volunteering not only allows you to directly engage with the causes you care about but also creates a sense of fulfillment and community connection.

  • Volunteer Work: Dedicate your time to volunteer for a nonprofit or charity, supporting their operations or specific projects.

  • Skills-Based Volunteering: Apply your unique skills, such as graphic design, marketing, or IT, to assist organizations.
