Ways to Help

There are many ways to support our work across the country. Donate dollars, goods, vehicles and more. We can't fulfill our mission without your support! Scroll down to learn more.

Maximize Your Impact-Gifts of Stock

A gift of stock makes a huge impact and creates a lasting effect for countless of our neighbors. Gifting stocks maximize your gift and allow you to avoid federal capital gains tax. Most donors can also claim an income tax deduction for the stock’s full market value. We’ve invested in this secure online tool that enables you to donate your appreciated assets in 10 minutes. The process is simple.

Make the Most of Your Donor-Advised Fund

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations, like us. With a grant recommendation today, you can give from money you’ve already set aside without spending an additional cent!  This secure online tool integrates with your DAF custodian and takes just a few minutes to use.

Give from Your IRA

If you’re 70 ½ or older and want to lower your taxable income, donations from your IRA to the work of Volunteers of America will reduce your taxable income and can help meet a required minimum distribution.

Make An Impact with Cryptocurrency

A gift of appreciated cryptocurrency to support Volunteers of America’s work in transforming lives of our neighbors can help you avoid capital gains taxes and get a big tax deduction. Donating cryptocurrency is safe, easy, and tax efficient.

You Can Help End Homelessness

Imagine having no place to sleep tonight. As constant dangers threaten, you feel scared, demoralized, and alienated. One donation can save someone from homelessness, providing safe shelter, meals, and housing support. Even more, you give them hope for better things ahead. For every person we reach, many more need our help. Please give what you can today. 

You Can Help Fight Hunger

Millions of Americans are struggling to feed their families, and their numbers are growing. Volunteers of America is at work in communities across the country responding to this crisis. Thanks to generous support, we’re providing meals, food and essential services where it’s needed most.  

Help Make New Beginnings Possible

Since 1896, Volunteers of America has been answering God’s call to transform lives by reaching and uplifting America’s most vulnerable. We seek to serve the needs of the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—by bringing together the human service agency and the church.

Our Ministry of Service, known as a church without walls, we are feeding hungry families, sheltering the homeless, and providing spiritual support for over one million people around the country. We lead with faith and service, shaping a better future for the neighbor in need, their family, and their community.​ Last year, VOA helped serve over 30,000 veterans last year and provides 4,000 beds for homeless veterans every night.
