Charitable Giving, Your Way



You want to feel comfortable and gratified about your charitable giving. But you don’t want to be constantly asked for money, flooded with mail, or feel you’re giving out of guilt. We don’t want that either.

As a donor, you have the deepest appreciation, admiration, and respect of The Salvation Army. You make it possible for us to continue “Doing the Most Good” by rescuing and rehabilitating the needy.

The Salvation Army stands for caring, compassion, and kindness. That’s our purpose. And when you become a Friend of The Army, you share in that purpose. It’s almost as if you’re working right beside us as we minister and care for the needy.

When it’s time to donate, you’ll receive a friendly reminder in the mail. So you don’t have to mark your calendar or worry about forgetting.

As a Friend of The Army, YOU can:

  • Be part of the group that believes in making the world a better place.
  • Enable The Salvation Army to do long-range planning to help more people.
  • Support a wide range of Salvation Army programs that help provide food and shelter to the homeless.
  • Donate because you want to, not because you’re hounded or feel guilty.
  • Reduce The Salvation Army’s costs (since we send less mail), so more money goes to helping people.
  • Reduce the amount of mail you receive.
  • Tell us how much and how often you want to donate; we’ll listen.
  • Receive convenient reminders when it’s time for your planned donation.
  • Review your Annual Statement detailing your donations for tax deduction purposes.
