Ways to Give

Why do you give to the Threshold? When asked this question, answers from you, our donors, are as diverse and numerous as the options available for you to make a contribution to our organization.

You give because you have a loved one who is or has received services. You give because you understand the needs of individuals with disabilities and want to make a difference in their lives. You give because you have the means and believe in our mission. Whatever the reason, please know we appreciate your contributions to help us keep our programs available to those in need of the services we provide.

Your gift directly benefits the 300 plus people we serve. As a local provider, you can be assured your gift remains right here, to help clients on a local level. We are proud of our 50+ year history as an independent agency.

What are your options for giving?

  • Donate gifts of cash through our secure on-line site, or mail your donation to our Rolfs Avenue location.
  • Set up an automatic monthly giving schedule.
  • Attend one of our fund-raising events.
  • Consider us when planning your estate, and leave a legacy for all to remember.
  • Give gifts of stock, tangible personal property, life insurance policies or retirement plans.

Gift Designations          

Your gift may be unrestricted, allowing The Threshold flexibility in allocating resources to the most pressing needs.

You may wish to give to a specific program or need, restricting your gift to only the purpose for which you intend.

The Threshold has set up an endowment fund to create a perpetual source of support for the present and future needs of the organization. All gifts to this fund remain in place while earning income for additional agency support.
