Cash and Pledges

Current gifts can include gifts of cash, credit card charges, appreciated securities (share of stock or mutual funds), or other property. Current gifts provide immediate financial assistance to support campaign initiatives.


A pledge is a formal Declaration of Intent to make a gift to the Isaiah House Campaign of Hope. It may be followed by an immediate gift, or it may confirm your intention to make a gift in the future. You may choose to complete your pledge by making regular payments over a period of time, which allows you to maximize your contribution.

In-Kind Giving

In-kind donations are a valuable resource for Isaiah House and help us further our mission. We accept a variety of in-kind gifts including furnishings, hygiene and cleaning products, bedding, vehicles, tools, and new clothes/shoes for our indigent clients. We do not accept used items like clothes and mattresses due to sanitation reasons. If you have a question about whether an in-kind donation is appropriate, please contact the public relations office.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Isaiah House is honored to accept gifts in honor or memory of a loved one, special friend, or colleague.


As a donor, you can make a gift that will create a legacy and have lasting impact on people in recovery and on Isaiah House’s long-term stability. You can include gifts of cash, securities, personal property, a percentage of the value of the estate, or the residue of your estate (property remaining after all other bequests have been fulfilled). To make a bequest, you need to leave instructions, typically in a will. You can detail different types of bequests in your will and update it throughout your life as your family, priorities, and wishes evolve.


Stock or mutual funds are a popular option because it allows you to help Isaiah House and receive a charitable income tax deduction.

Retirement Plan Assets – Tax-Exempt Deferred Giving Plan

With Isaiah House as your retirement plan asset recipient, your heirs will receive income and estate tax savings, and Isaiah House will receive the full value of the plan.

Savings Bonds

Savings bonds may have stopped growing. A tax-wise use for appreciated savings bonds is to support Isaiah House.

Real Estate and Personal Property

You may give a residence, land, or other real property. The value of the donation is determined by an appraisal of the fair market value at the time of the transfer of ownership.  Donations of personal property such as equipment, furniture, appliances, and vehicles can also be contributed.

Closely Held Stock

A donation of your closely held stock can be a great way to make a sizable charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.  An income tax deduction will be realized by the donor for the charitable gift, and a tax advantage will be realized by avoidance of capital gains taxes on the stocks appreciated value.  The donor retains a controlled interest in the company.

Giving through a Donor Advised Fund or Foundation

Your contributions through this method ensures asset distribution to specific charities, current and/or deferred tax advantages, and flexibility.

Life Insurance

The gift of life insurance provides you with a charitable contribution for the present cash surrender value.  Also, future premium payments made following the transfer of ownership and beneficiary status of the policy are tax-deductible.
