Ways to Give

Since its inception, North Light has relied on donations from individuals, foundations and businesses to keep our programs accessible and affordable.

General Support

  • Annual Fund Gifts:  North Light’s Annual Fund provides critically needed support to North Light’s core programs and operations.
  • Matching Gifts: You may increase your contribution to North Light if your workplace or that of your spouse has a matching gifts program. See your company’s Human Resources Office for information.
  • 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 such as a computer, athletic equipment, office furnishings, etc. Please see our WISH LIST for current specific needs, but don’t hesitate to contact the office directly if you have an item that you’d like to donate that is not listed.
  • 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.
  • Combined Federal Campaign: You may designate North Light Community Center  by using the universal code number, # 42579.

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.
