Give Financially

Medical crises take no vacation, occur in good economies and bad, and strike people at all income levels. But thanks to generous donors, The Doorways is open 24/7, 365 days a year, through good times and bad, for all of our guests, regardless of their ability to make a donation for their stay.

The Doorways counts on annual contributions from churches, foundations, civic and veterans organizations, businesses, and individuals, including guests and former guests to serve the approximately 8,000 guests who stay with us each year.

We welcome gifts of all types, including checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. We will work with you and your financial advisors to maximize the tax benefits for you and the value of your gift. Gifts can be deducted from your adjusted gross income on your tax return.

Our most critical financial need is funding for day-to-day operations, because our House, just like yours, has heating, air conditioning and maintenance costs. And, while volunteers provide many services for The Doorways, a small staff is still necessary to keep everything running smoothly.

Every dollar makes a difference!

Honorariums and Memoriams

A gift to The Doorways is a thoughtful way to honor a milestone important to your family and friends, or to celebrate the life of a loved one whose memory will live on not only in your heart, but also in our mission.

Gifts of Stocks or Bonds

A gift of long-term appreciated securities has two major advantages. It provides the donor with an immediate income tax deduction and eliminates a capital gains tax to the extent allowed by tax law. Typically donors have stock transferred from their brokerage account to the account The Doorways holds with Merrill Lynch. Electronic transfer is the safest and fastest way to give stock to The Doorways. Instruct your stock broker to transfer your shares to:

Merrill Lynch DTC #5198
The Doorways

Merrill Lynch #75804009
The Doorways

If you have any questions regarding the transfer or stocks or securities, please contact Shawn Walker, CFO, #804-828-6901.
