Become a General Fund Supporter
These wise supporters know that needs cannot always be anticipated or predicted. Donations to this fund support the most urgent need at the exact time the client and their program need it. Supporters of our general fund truly help keep our cup “full.”
Support a Special Project
These supporters feel a passion for a particular service we are either currently providing, or hope to provide in the future. They know that their gift is useful in many areas throughout the agency. Their gifts go to support a purchase, project, or expense in the area of their choosing.
Current projects include, but are never limited to:
- An Accessible Van for transportation
- Supported Employment/Job Coaching
- The Food Service Training Program at Futures Vocational Day Program
- Restricted Health Care Services at ALIVE
- Social Recreation Program
Become a “Sustainer”
Sustainers are those special people who set aside a bit of their own to help sustain programs for those we serve. To become a sustainer, you can pledge to give a monthly donation towards the long-term health and growth of our programs. No amount is too small to make a difference. If you would like to sustain our agency’s future you can send a check each month, or you can make convenient automatic donations from your credit or debit card. If you would like more information please contact Dienne Kelly at Futures Explored at 925-284-3240 extension 211 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make an Endowment Donation
Our Endowment fund is a long-term investment fund that secures the longevity of our agency. When you make a donation here it is carefully invested and income from the investments is available to help when needed. Your gift will always remain and grow untouched in the endowment fund. This is a great place to make a large gift.
Leave a Legacy
Planned giving is one way you can make a difference long after you are gone. Consider talking to your accountant or attorney about alternative such as making a gift in trust to Futures Explored. This can be a great way to reduce the amount your heirs have to pay in estate taxes
Make an In-Kind Donation
Futures Explored is truly grateful for the many in-kind donors who have helped make the 2006-2007 Fiscal Year successful for our program participants.
Last year, your donations to Nifty Thrift alone generated $126,000 in sales for our programs. Donations are accepted at Nifty Thrift at 3467 Golden Gate Way in Lafayette during the hours of 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.
Your gifts of time, services, and material items help offset costs and allow us to focus funds on programming for our consumers! To view our current wish list for items, click here.
