Special Events: North Light hosts a number of special events during the year to help support the Center.
Gifts In-Kind: A gift-in-kind is a non-cash gift or service that would be of value to North Light. Please contact the Development Office for more information regarding our current needs.
United Way: You may designate North Light Community Center as the recipient by marking the specific care section of the donor choice form with North Light’s name and code number, # 00091.

Endowment Support
North Light’s Endowment Fund provides perpetual support to the Community Center. The principal of a gift to the Endowment Fund is invested, with the interest and dividend income contributing to North Light’s operating fund. Building a significant Endowment Fund is essential to ensuring North Light’s ability to sustain quality programs and serve its community in the future.

Memorial/Tribute Gifts
Memorial and Tribute Gifts are expressions of love and respect. A Tribute Gift shows a person that you care and wish to honor them. A Memorial Gift honors the memory of a friend or loved one. A Tribute/Memorial Gift may be planned or given outright, and is placed in the fund of your choice, General Support or Endowment, to help ensure the availability of North Light’s programs and services. Each Tribute Gift honoree is notified that a gift has been made in his/her honor. Each Memorial Gift will be honored on North Light’s Memorial Plaque.

Planned Giving 
Are you wanting to leave a legacy at North Light? A bequest gift is a financially creative and effective way for dedicated supporters to benefit children, youth and families of future generations. Bequests often result in favorable tax benefits to the donor’s family and heirs. Gift types include charitable bequests in your will, securities, charitable gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, charitable remainder trusts, life insurance and real estate.
