Ways to Support HomeSafe

People often think one-time gifts are the only way to give to HomeSafe. However, there are number of ways to support the organization from in-kind donations to endowments. Every gift to HomeSafe helps further our important mission.

Endowments

Despite challenging economic times, funding uncertainties and increased competition for grants and corporate support, HomeSafe is proud of its proactive financial stewardship. We carefully manage every dollar raised and spend funds in a responsible manner.

Our goal is to increase the size of our endowment to $16 million, allowing us to attain overall organizational sustainability and increased self-sufficiency. Once we achieve our endowment goal, we will generate investment earnings to support annual program operations and further reduce our reliance on annual gifts. We will then be able to direct a greater share of our annual gifts toward implementing additional innovative, research-based initiatives that reduce and prevent child abuse and domestic violence.

The endowment spending policy is designed to:

  • Protect the value of the original gift
  • Honor the donor’s instructions on how the endowment income is used
  • Support operations regardless of market conditions

In addition to customized endowment pledges, HomeSafe supporters can select pre-arranged endowment pledges that can be made over a period of time. The endowment plans are convenient and budget friendly; contributions can be transferred automatically to HomeSafe from donors’ financial institutions.

For more information about endowments, please contact 561-383-9842 or Development@HelpHomeSafe.org.

Bequests

A meaningful way to leave a positive impact on your community is through pre-planned giving instructions via a will or living trust. Charitable gifts made through a will and living trust are 100 percent tax-deductible for estate tax purposes. A charitable bequest has many financial benefits, including the potential to lower your estate tax bracket.

If you are interested in leaving a lasting legacy by supporting HomeSafe, please provide your attorney with the following information:

  • Sample provision: "I bequeath (state the specific dollar amount, percentage, residue, or description of real or personal property) to HomeSafe of Lake Worth, Florida, to be used or disposed of as HomeSafe in its sole discretion deems appropriate."
  • Please inform HomeSafe if you wish to have the funds restricted for a specific purpose.
  • HomeSafe’s Tax Identification Number (TIN): 59-1935485

For additional information or to discuss other gift options such as life insurance, real estate, or charitable remainder trusts, contact 561-383-9842 or Development@HelpHomeSafe.org.

In-kind Contributions

In addition to monetary contributions, HomeSafe will consider appropriate in-kind donations – ranging from physical products to tangible and intangible professional services. These contributions play an important role in defraying costs in providing necessary items and services to the more than 16,000 infants, children, young adults and families we serve each year.

Recreational Endowment

The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties awarded HomeSafe a $25,000 challenge grant. This new endowment gives us a reliable source of funding for year-round recreational activities including spring and summer breaks. Recreational activities allow our kids to experience a typical childhood and practice their behavior management skills while out in the community.

Your donation helps fund excursions and fun activities such as:

  • Disney World
  • Universal Studios
  • Palm Beach Zoo
  • SeaWorld
  • Lion Country Safari
  • Roller skating
  • Goony golf

Participating in these recreational activities provides the children of HomeSafe with lifelong memories.

With your support, we can continue to provide a home-like setting for children in need.

Securities

In addition to helping reduce and prevent child abuse and domestic violence, donating your securities (stocks and mutual funds) to HomeSafe can also provide you with considerable financial and tax-saving benefits.

Talk to your accountant or financial advisor about how your securities’ contributions to HomeSafe can enhance your finances and tax-savings.
