CHANGE A CHILD’S LIFE TODAY
Through donations, you contribute to changing the lives of children and their family. Pope’s Kids Place offers several ways to support children through tax-deductible gifts. A number of unique giving opportunities are available to those who wish to support Pope’s Kids Place and its mission. Through short-term and long-term planning, tax-deductible gifts can be designated as unrestricted or restricted contributions. We invite you to consider the many opportunities available. Every gift made to Pope’s Kids Place makes a difference.
Below are several methods of giving to suit individual specific wishes and needs.
Make a difference today and change the life of a child. Through monetary donations, you give a child care from nurturing and professional nurses, early development and educational skills. Through your donations, you give parents of medically fragile children an opportunity to hold down a job, take a moment to be able to provide for their family, and the ability to reenergize. These unrestricted or restricted gifts can be made online by debit card or credit card through the secured Donation Page. Contributions can also be made via check payable to Pope’s Kids Place and mailed to:

Corporate and Matching Gifts
Your gift will change a life; however, if your employer has a matching gift program, it will change two lives. A majority of companies have matching gift programs. If you discover your employer has a matching gift program and you’d like to participate, request a matching gift form from your employer. We are happy to help through the process.
Planned giving is the pathway for community members to take that ensures the continuous growth of Pope’s Kids Place. A planned gift provides the opportunity to make financial plans that include several options that are mutually beneficial to the member as well as Pope’s Kids Place. Pope’s Kids Place accepts gifts in the form of securities, trusts, and wills.
A common means of making a planned gift is through a bequest in a will. Bequests can take on the form of gifts of cash but can also provide for the transfer of stocks, mutual funds, 401Ks, and IRAs. Real estate and valuable personal property can also be given in the form of a bequest. Depending on the terms of the bequest, a percentage of value or the entire value of the particular item can be gifted to Pope’s Kids Place.
Annuities and Trusts
By placing assets in an annuity or trust, donors receive the income with Pope’s Kids Place being the ultimate beneficiary. These life income plans allow donors to avoid significant capital gains and estate taxes while keeping Pope’s Kids Place in a positive growth direction.
Pope’s Kids Place recommends that a certified financial planner or attorney be consulted when donors contemplate bequests, annuities or trusts.
Every little bit helps. Through partnerships with United Way, Pope’s Kids Place is able to keep an accurate list of our needs through the Volunteer Center.
