Ways To Give
In order for children with multiple disabilities and profound deafness to receive help, your financial support is not only needed but deeply appreciated. The mission of impacting disabled and hearing impaired children’s lives is not without cost. Your generosity is what has made it possible for countless disabled children to receive hearing aids, wheelchair assist equipped vans, barrier-free playgrounds, respite care, camp experiences, and more.
Special needs children and profoundly deaf children in Greater Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas are all living better lives because of YOU.
We maintain an Amazon wishlist for our most needed items. These resources are provided to our special angels and their families. When you purchase an item from this list it will automatically be delivered to our offices.
Your gift to Be An Angel could be matched dollar for dollar by your employer! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees and/or employees’ spouses.
If Be An Angel is already offered as a donation option in your company’s workplace giving program, please elect to support us. Here are some other ways that you may support Be An Angel through the workplace each year:
- Your Company’s Campaign: During a workplace giving campaign, usually taking place in the fall, companies will give employees opportunities to donate to and volunteer with causes they care about. Ask your company how you can donate to Be An Angel during your campaign.
- Federal Employees: To designate Be An Angel in your Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), enter our CFC agency code 61425 on your campaign pledge form.
If you are a corporate representative and would like more information about workplace giving programs and resources that we offer, contact Be An Angel today.
Every week you buy groceries, which means every week you can be supporting the life-changing mission of Be An Angel! By registering your grocery member card with the store, you can easily help disabled and profoundly deaf children by having a portion of each purchase given to Be An Angel
Individual Retirement Account
By naming Be An Angel as beneficiary of your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can give Be An Angel a gift that is free of all income and estate taxes because of Be An Angel’s 501(c)3 status.
If you’ve reached the age (70 ½) where a minimum distribution is mandatory, but you don’t need those funds, you can directly transfer those funds to Be An Angel.
A trust is an excellent solution to many potential estate problems. You can include Be An Angel as the beneficiary of a relatively simple revocable trust or irrevocable trust. A charitable lead trust lets you provide a payout to Be An Angel during your lifetime (or a term of years) and preserve assets for other beneficiaries, such as your children or your grandchildren.
Charitable Remainder Unitrust
By transferring stocks to a Charitable Remainder Unitrust, you can be impacting children’s lives.
You may receive higher annual dividends and be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction that can save you considerably on your taxes.
Be An Angel works with PhilanthroCorp to ensure that your legacy is carried on after your passing. PhilanthroCorp allows you to have the opportunity to work with experienced attorneys to bless your children and grandchildren as well as the charities which are near and dear to your heart. Resources such as the equity in your home, life insurance, and retirement plans should be responsibly stewarded after you leave this world. Building a lasting legacy through your estate gift makes it possible for the life-changing mission of Be An Angel to continue.
*Due to insurance rules, all volunteers must be at least 18 years old.*
You have a particular group of friends, colleagues, and family members who share your passion for our mission at Be An Angel.
One of the most effective ways to advance our life-changing mission is to host an event to get all of the people in your social group introduced and plugged in to Be An Angel Events can include in-home receptions, fun runs, and walks, bake sales, silent auctions, manning a booth at a local community fair, or almost anything else. The possibilities are endless!
If you are interested in helping a specific fundraising initiative please contact our offices and we will connect you with our Development Director, Margaret. We will provide all of the needed resources for you to plan and organize a successful event for you and your social group.
We might be limited in our ability to be present at every single fundraiser across Texas but we are not limited in our desire to help you execute a successful event so more children can be helped. Thank you for understanding!
From the annual gala to the annual clay shooting tournament and from the annual purse bingo to the annual Bar-B-Que, there are multiple events throughout the year in need of your sponsorship. Each of these fundraising events offers you and your friends a memorable experience all while supporting the noble mission of Be An Angel.
