Invest in Southwest
The Growing Home Circle recognizes visionary donors who support us with an annual gift of $1,500 or more. They position us to do more through generous financial support of both our permanent endowment fund and immediate needs in the daily work of our mission.
Our Growing Home Circle members have been and continue to be critical partners in our work. To date, the total impact on our general endowment through the Growing Home Circle exceeds $10 million and can be credited for over $637,000 of current dollars in our annual operating budget.
Give in Other Ways
There are many tax-smart giving options to support our mission.
Other common ways to give include:
- Making a gift through your Individual Retirement Account (called a Qualified Charitable Distribution, or QCD)
- Giving appreciated securities, such as stock and mutual funds
- A life insurance gift
- A charitable bequest in your will or trust
- Establishing a donor-advised fund here, or recommending a grant from your donor-advised fund held elsewhere
These types of gifts often require time to prepare and process, especially at the end of the calendar year. We encourage you to connect with a member of our team early in your planning.
