What are in-kind donations?
Donated goods or services, rather than monetary gifts, are considered gifts-in-kind. The following are supplies that help us do our job better and professional services that keep us operating with less overhead. In-kind donations can have a huge impact on our organization, allowing us to dedicate more resources directly to the communities with which we work. Our staff compiled an in-kind donation wish list below. Thank you for taking the time to consider it!
