See if your employer will match a direct gift to a “local charity” (i.e. FirstServe). You can then make a direct donation to FirstServe and have it doubled. Use the tax number above.

You can specify employee deductions you make at work, noting FirstServe as the recipient. Employers often match these contributions. Make sure you tell the Human Resource staff that FirstServe is an IRS approved 501[C][3] charitable tax exempt organization, and use this Tax I.D. number: 32-0187458 .

Make a contribution of unused items, marked for FirstServe. In the past donations of walkers, wheelchairs and other items have been used to aid neighbors near and far. Please speak with our office before making a gift.

See if your corporation, or one your family is engaged with, makes grants to charities which meet their criteria. Contact Bill Hurst, FirstServe’s Executive Director, and he will check the requirements, and, if we meet them, submit the application. This is a major source of income. And, many companies deeply appreciate their employees’ participation with local charities.
