Other Ways to Give

There are many other ways to support the Mission and make a long lasting impact on homelessness.

Honor loved ones. Leave a legacy and more.

You can give in many ways to help homeless people in the Hampton Roads community. You can give a gift in memory of a family member or friend, have your gift matched by your company, or even remember the Mission in your will.

However you support us, you will be building a legacy of hope for future generations. Thank you for giving today.


Legacy giving

A final gift of love—is a lasting legacy of hope. Give the gift that keeps on giving! Leaving a legacy of charitable giving for future generations is a rewarding and noble act. You can leave a charitable gift and at the same time provide for the future of your loved ones. Learn how …

The best way to make a charitable bequest depends on your assets, family considerations, and charitable interests. You can give: a specific amount, a specific property, or a percentage of your assets. Things to consider:

  • Future earning capabilities as well as the possibility of your estate being subject to federal or state taxes.
  • Keeping your arrangements up-to-date is equally important as relationships and circumstances change.

A gift from your estate, through your will, or other estate planning vehicles, can only be made if you plan ahead. For more information, contact our Development office at (757) 627-8686 ext. 505 and ask for your free “Guide to Creating a God-Honoring Will.”

Matching gifts

If your employer has a matching gift program, we’re twice blessed with your gift! Every $1 you give will double through the match, meaning twice the meals, shelter, and hope for our neediest neighbors.

How does it work? If you donate $50 your employer will donate a matching gift doubling the gift to $100. Check with your employer to see if they participate, or refer to this list of Matching Gift Companies.

Memorial and honorary gifts

There’s no better way to remember or honor a loved one than by helping the most vulnerable people in our community. Give a memorial or honorary gift today.

Through a Memorial Gift, your loved one will be remembered in prayer and by helping those in need. Each memorial gift is acknowledged by a letter mailed to the family of the deceased.

Through an Honorary Gift, you’ll help someone in the name of a friend or relative. Such a gift can also celebrate graduations, weddings, promotions, and retirements. Each is acknowledged by a card sent to the honoree.

For more information on memorial or honorary gifts, call (757) 627-8686.
