Give the gift that will benefit generations: endowments are permanent legacies that provide significant donor recognition as well as support for our programs in perpetuity. The principal of your endowment gift is invested and the income from the investment is used to continue providing safety and support services for domestic violence survivors in our community.
Deferred gifts may allow you to provide a larger legacy than outright gifts made during your lifetime. Your planned gift will contribute to the future strength of the institution and enable Hope House to carry forward the work and ideals in which you believe.
Planned gifts may be in the form of bequests, life insurance, qualified retirement plans or real estate. We encourage you and your legal/financial advisors to work with our Development Office staff to plan deferred gifts.
To discuss planned giving, please contact Anne Aubuchon or call us at 816-257-9330.
For a gift that starts giving to Hope House now and into the future, IRA rollovers are available through Dec. 31 each year. This allows you to make a gift of your required minimum distribution (RMD) without increasing your taxes.
Each year, Hope House provides emergency shelter and assistance to thousands of domestic violence survivors through various services. But we cannot do it alone. We need the support and assistance from businesses and organizations within our community. Consider adopting Hope House as your charity of choice for your annual giving.
Throughout the year, your company or organization can implement a variety of activities to support Hope House in different ways. For example, you can collect urgently needed items for those residing in a shelter, invite a speaker from Hope House to educate staff on domestic violence issues, collect monetary donations, or organize a volunteer project for Hope House. Many organizations will change their support method with the start of a new month. These activities are not only incredibly rewarding for your group, but also are great for team building and company unity.
For more information about adopting Hope House for your annual giving, please contact Anne Aubuchon or us call 816-257-9330.
Monetary donations may be made by clicking the DONATE button at the top of this page, or you can mail a contribution to Hope House, PO Box 577, Lee's Summit, MO 64063.
Other Ways to Give
Matching charitable contributions can be a great way to double or even triple the funds raised and will help Hope House in our efforts to end domestic violence. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Check with your human resources department to see if your employer participates and to obtain the necessary form.
Vehicles for Charity
Hope House benefits by receiving a cash donation to fund new and existing programs and increase community awareness through local events when you choose to donate your vehicle. Have an old car you've been waiting to get rid of? Learn more about our vehicle donation program here.
Together we can build a brighter future.
Domestic violence can happen to anyone, no matter their gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexuality. Hope House advocates for survivors, no matter where they are in their journey. Join us in creating a brighter tomorrow for survivors.
