There are many practical and effective ways to provide financial support to Eva's Village. Here are some suggestions:
Write a check. Eva's depends on contributions that can be put to immediate use to sustain our ongoing programs. All gifts - no matter the amount - help ensure that Eva's continues to be the place "Where Hope Begins" for the poor. Please make checks payable to Eva's Village and send to: Eva's Village, 393 Main Street, Paterson, NJ 07501. It is helpful to include our donation form (click here to download the form).
Donate by credit card. You can contribute through VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express - by phone or online on this page. It's fast, convenient, easy, and safe. Eva's Village uses PayPal to protect your financial transaction with industry-leading security and fraud prevention systems, but you do not need a PayPal account to make a donation using your credit card. Simply enter your donation amount, click "Donate" and follow the instructions. Once your payment is complete, a confirmation page is displayed and you will receive an email receipt of your transaction.
To make a donation as a memorial or in honor of someone include our donation form (click here to download the form) which allow you to let us know who you are honoring or remembering. Please make checks payable to Eva's Village and send to: Eva's Village, 393 Main Street, Paterson, NJ 07501.
Make a long-term pledge. To help Eva's work, you can arrange to give at regular intervals - yearly, quarterly, or even monthly.
Give financial securities or property. Many donors find it convenient - and tax-wise - to donate stocks or bonds that have appreciated in value, real estate, or other property.
Have your gift matched by your employer. Many companies encourage their employees (and retirees) to support agencies like Eva's by matching their contributions dollar-for-dollar. Gifts made by spouses may also be covered. Check with your Human Resources office to see if you qualify.
Create an endowment. Gifts of $25,000 or more can be designated as a permanent endowment that will help undergird Eva's long-term financial stability.
Consider a planned gift
One of the best ways to provide for Eva's future is to arrange now for a gift that will come to Eva's at a later time. By doing so, you can often afford to make a much larger contribution than you thought possible. There are several attractive options:
A bequest in your will. Everyone should have a valid, up-to-date will, and you can use this basic planning tool to make a future donation to Eva's.
Life insurance. A policy that is no longer needed (say, because your children are now financially independent) can be donated to Eva's to provide a future benefit for the poor.
Life-income plans. Through a Charitable Gift Annuity, Charitable Remainder Trust or similar vehicle, you can receive current income, an immediate income tax deduction, estate tax benefits - and the satisfaction of knowing that your generosity will have an impact far into the future.
