Other Ways to Give
Want to leave a legacy that will make a difference for generations to come?
Consider naming Interfaith Coalition as a beneficiary in your will. Even a small line item bequest to Interfaith is a powerful way to put your values into action. The commitment of your donation remains as a reminder of your values for children and great-grandchildren.
Contribute to the Interfaith Endowment Fund. This allows your tax-deductible gift to be invested and multiplied via a professionally managed account, creating a source of income that will continue caring for our neighbors in need into the future. Because the fund is permanent, and the principal is never touched, the legacy of support for Interfaith’s work will carry forward in perpetuity and influence future generations in the family.
Have a rental unit?
Lease one of your rental units to an Interfaith family in need of housing. Why not take a blessing you’ve received and use it as a ministry for others? Interfaith will screen tenants, help structure the lease, and provide in-home case management regularly. Use what you have to help Interfaith lift families out of poverty.
Good year in the stock market making you worried about taxes?
Double the benefit you receive when you donate stocks, bonds, IRA distributions, or mutual funds to Interfaith. When you give appreciated securities to Interfaith, you don’t pay tax on your earnings, and you take the full amount of the sale as a tax-deductible donation.
Is Thrivent your financial advisor?
Through their Thrivent Choice program, you are allocated funds to be given to good causes (at no cost to you). Please recommend that Thrivent direct your share of charitable donations to Interfaith Coalition.
Do you shop at Amazon or Fred Meyer?
This is a FREE way to donate to local folks in need. Go to the website Smile.Amazon.com (it’s the same as Amazon.com, just a different route in). Do not go through the Amazon app. From there, choose Interfaith Coalition as the charity you want Amazon to support. At Fred Meyer, log on to your online account, or inquire at Customer Service in the store, and link your Rewards card to Interfaith Coalition. You still get all your Rewards points, fuel points, and rebates yourself, but you’re directing Fred Meyer’s corporate donation to Interfaith, at no cost to you.
Know someone who is going to buy or sell a house?
Using the Realtor 2roofs (2roofs.com). Every sale through this local company helps homeless families. One roof can help build another.
Got a little spare change?
Spread the love around when you pick up a few empty prescription bottles from the Interfaith office. Place a bottle in your office, or with your book club, sports team, youth group, or other gathering. Encourage your congregation to do the same. Keep it visible and invite others to chip in; each bottle holds $10 in quarters. This is an easy, accessible way for kids or anyone to participate and learn about giving back. Return bottles to Interfaith office when full.
Have tickets or a vacation house?
Hope Auction is one of the most eagerly anticipated fundraising events each spring. Support our work by becoming an auction underwriter or a donor. Individuals and congregations, businesses and friends come together to donate useful services, exciting vacation get-aways, sports tickets, artwork, themed gift baskets and just about anything you can imagine!
