Ways to Give
Making a Tribute Gift to Renewal is a wonderful way to honor and celebrate a special individual, or remember the life of a loved one. We will thank you promptly for your gift, and the person you are honoring will receive a letter from Renewal with no mention of the amount of your gift. For memorial contributions, a letter will be sent to the person’s family. Make your Tribute Gift safely and securely using our online form, or download and print our Donation Form.

Companies recognize the value of supporting Renewal’s programs and services. Among the many reasons is Renewal’s emphasis on workforce readiness through our GETPAID program®, which prepares individuals who are re-entering the workforce with the skills they need to be reliable, productive and successful employees. Many companies already partner with Renewal and benefit by being able to tap a pool of highly-motivated individuals to fill key positions.
By providing financial support to Renewal, areas businesses can benefit from the exposure that comes through naming opportunities, sponsorships, on-site recognition and logo display at events and programs that attract a wide range of civic, government and business leaders from throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia.

Corporate Giving Campaigns
Many companies offer their employees the opportunity to support charities through payroll deduction. Please contact your Human Resources or Personnel department to determine if your company participates.
Matching Gift Programs
Another convenient way to support Renewal is through employer gift-matching programs. Many companies will match their employees’ financial donations dollar for dollar, sometimes even doubling their employees’ gifts. Find out if your company matches its employees’ gifts by contacting your human resources department.
Many individuals make arrangements to benefit their charity of choice through a bequest, gift of life insurance, retirement account, real estate or other means. Often called “planned” or deferred gifts, there are many options for providing a legacy for Renewal that can pay immediate benefits and minimize estate taxes.
We would be happy to discuss some of the ways in which you can provide support to Renewal as part of your estate planning, and encourage you to talk with your personal tax and financial advisors as well.
