Want to have an immediate impact? Monetary gifts are a great way to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the people who walk in our doors every day.
We’ll make sure your monetary donation – including gifts made via cash, check, money order or credit card – is used in exactly the way you want to help. If you’re passionate about feeding the hungry, for example, you can designate a gift to your local Salvation Army food shelf. Or if you want to help a single mother pay her utility bill during the heart of winter, you can direct your gift to our HeatShare program.
Your gift can also help fill the gaps by giving to our general fund. Ultimately, a gift of any amount is appreciated and helps us in Doing the Most Good®.
Whatever your passion, we have a way for you to give in support of it. Here are three easy ways to donate:
- Give online
- Mail a check to:
The Salvation Army, 2445 Prior Ave., Roseville, MN 55113
- Call 800-SAL-ARMY (725-2769) where operators are available 24 hours a day
Benefits of Monetary Gifts
Not only does your gift help the men, women, and children we serve, it can also help you. You can claim a charitable deduction of up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income for the year the gift is given. If you can’t use the entire deduction in one year, you can carry it over for up to five years. If you live in Minnesota and do not itemize, you may deduct 50 percent of your total charitable contributions exceeding $500 on your Minnesota tax return. These are general guidelines and not professional tax advice, please consult your tax advisor.
Want to double your gift? Check to see if your company has a matching gifts program. Many businesses will match gifts given by employees to The Salvation Army, often doubling the total gift. To start a matching program with The Salvation Army, please contact Kaleigh Walter at 651-746-3506.
