How You Can Help Children Waiting For A Family AND Get a Tax Deduction for 2014
We know that not everyone can adopt or foster a child, but there are other ways you can contribute to help kids find families. The following are just a few ways you can make a difference:
Make a Donation
Call 510-272-0204 to find out how you can pledge annually, monthly or make a one-time donation. You can mail a donation to Family Builders at 401 Grand Avenue, Suite 400, Oakland, CA 94610. OR simply click on the button below and make an easy and secure online contribution to our mission.
Donate Your Vehicle, Working or Not
If you're about to purchase a new (to you) vehicle, please think of donating your current vehicle to Family Builders. This generous gift provides so much for our children and youth, and it's easy to do! Just click through http://www.donatecarusa.com/donate/family-builders or call 1-800-320-0476.
Celebrate or Honor Someone Who Loves Children
Do you have a person in your life who really loves and cares about children? Make a contribution in their name, and Family Builders will promptly send them a card that will let them know how they are inspiring others to make a difference.
Give at the Office
Designate Family Builders as the recipient of the donations you make through United Way, Combined Federal Campaign (#82769), Bay Area Black United Fund, and other federated fundraising drives.
