Memorial and Honorary Gifts
Your donation can be used to make a meaningful gift in memory of a family member or friend, or in honor of someone special, perhaps commemorating a birthday or other significant life event.
To help us promote our services in the community, we organize a major fundraiser in the fall of each year, among other events. If you are interested in becoming an event sponsor, please see our Upcoming Events.
You can make a meaningful legacy gift by remembering New Beginnings in your estate plans, with a simple bequest, an IRA or insurance beneficiary designation, or a provision in a charitable remainder trust funded with appreciated property. Please visit our Planned Giving page for more information.
While we have limited storage, we will consider accepting gently used furniture donations, high-quality dishware, clothes, or household items that would be useful to our clients we have recently housed. If you are a business owner or car mechanic interested in donating or offering your services to our clients, please contact our Development Department 805-963-7777 x112 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have furniture you would like to donate, please email a picture of the item to email@example.com.
Amazon Wish List
New Beginnings typically houses between 3 and 5 individuals and families per month. To help us pay for move-in costs, such as cleaning supplies and other items, we have set up an Amazon Wish List. You can easily purchase items that are directly delivered to our agency. If you would like a donation acknowledgement letter, please contact our Development Department 805-963-7777 x112 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
