Because of the generosity of people like you, Interfaith is able to provide a wide variety of services and opportunities to older adults throughout the Greater Milwaukee area. But no one can do it alone.
How Can You Help Interfaith?
Your monetary donations are used to enhance social, educational, recreational and wellness programming for older adults and caregivers. You can even tell us how you would like your gift to be used, whether it’s toward our area of greatest need, or to support one of our programs. If it’s more convenient to plan regular contributions, you can easily set up gifting on a monthly or annual basis for a specific amount. This type of planned giving provides us with known funds to work with throughout the year.
Also ask us how matching funds, donor drives, cause-related marketing campaigns and foundation gifts can make a world of difference.
Making a donation to Interfaith on behalf of a loved one, whether alive or deceased, is a generous act that pays tribute to that person. Whether your donation is given in memory of someone, or your gift honors a loved one’s birthday or other special milestone, we will send a personalized card to whomever your donation recognizes.
To make arrangements
As part of your overall estate planning, you may choose to leave a gift to Interfaith in your own memory. This can include a large, one-time offering to a specific Interfaith service, a bequest in your will, a gift of securities, or benefits from a trust. This will be your legacy to the future of Interfaith and to the important part we play in the lives of so many of your older neighbors.
Estate gifts and special bequests are particularly welcome to provide future financial support to Interfaith, and strengthen and expand our long-term service offerings. This can include a large, one-time gift to a specific Interfaith service or opportunity, a bequest in your will, a gift of securities, or benefits from a trust.
We also rely on in-kind donations to fulfill some of our program needs. From items as small as a postage stamp, to unique items like medical equipment, in-kind gifts help us fulfill our mission. Items commonly needed include:
- Gas cards for volunteer drivers
- Grocery gift cards for older adults and caregivers
- U.S. postage stamps for mailing greeting cards to older adults and caregivers
- Stationery, greeting cards, pens, paper
- Office supplies, white board markers
Senior Center & Senior Dining Site needs:
- Centerpieces and/or paper placements for celebrations at Senior Dining sites
- White rags for wiping down tables (dollar store variety works fine)
- 1-inch dial, instant-read thermometers (only those able to be re-calibrated)
- Flame-resistant oven mitts
- Arts and crafts supplies
Personal care supplies:
- Basic Geri manikin (carry case optional)
- Hydraulic hoyer lift: electric preferred, holds up to 425 lbs.
- Manual wheelchair with removable armrests: standard adult size with footrests (18" x 16" or 18" x 18")
