The Herring Foundation of Hope raises funds through corporate and individual donations as well as annual fundraising events. Donations to the foundation can take many forms — monetary, material, and in-kind are several of the most common. Of course all types of donations are appreciated and critical to our survival.
- Monetary contributions are of course appreciated! Thanks to the volume discounts negotiated by the foundation, each donation of $100 can pay for a Hope Kit for a newly diagnosed cancer patient.
- Material contributions are almost as valuable as monetary donations and include items which can be raffled or auctioned (i.e. frequent flier miles, vacation homes, sports tickets, etc).
- In-kind donations include any products or services which the foundation can use in running the organization as well as the fundraising events we organize. In-kind contributions may include printing, advertising, shipping/fulfillment, legal/accounting, and web/technology to name a few.
Most of these types of contributions are tax-deductible, but please check with your personal tax advisor.
Last but not least, you can always donate your time. The Herring Foundation of Hope is an all-volunteer organization and as such, we are always looking for people to help us to carry the day-to-day load as well as work at our fundraising events. Everyone has their own special talents, and we embrace anyone who is willing to give the gift of their time and effort.
