Every donation counts, no matter how big or small. planned giving Consider becoming a member of Victim Assistance Program Legacy Society. Consult your financial advisor or trust officer about making a living legacy gift through your will or estate plan. Our most recent planned giving gift was that of Bruce H. Buchholtzer who donated 4% of the 25% of his assets designated to local charities. tribute giving Honor a friend or loved one by making a special gift to Victim Assistance Program in their name. Your gift will be acknowledged with a special note sent to the person, or the family of the person you are honoring. All donation amounts are confidential. Tribute gifts have been made in lieu of birthday gifts, wedding gifts and flowers for memorial services. private fundraiser Host your own fundraiser to raise funds and awareness for Victim Assistance Program. From a small home party with your closest friends to a full-blown community silent auction, there are many fun and creative ways to raise money. Some examples include asking friends and relatives to bring a gift certificate with them to a party you are hosting, pass a hat around your book club or ask your boss to allow a jeans day in the office for people who donate to our cause. corporate partnerships You can help victims by encouraging your company or business to become a financial supporter of our program. Opportunities for corporate partnerships provide benefits for both partners through volunteerism, PR and an ability to help one another accomplish agency/company goals. employee giving Many companies encourage their employees to be philanthropic by matching charitable contributions up to 100%. First Energy, PNC Bank, Key Bank, BP Gas, Liberty Insurance and Gap are just a few companies that match their employees donations.
