Donate Now

Your gift will be used where needed most.

However, if you’d like to designate it to a special program, here is a brief description of each:


Accessible transportation is a must and we are committed to community integration made possible by that transportation. However, there is limited funding to meet the ongoing demand for vans. It costs $12.50 a day to keep the vans moving!

Choice’s Champions

Our new free-standing adult day center offers cooking and nutrition training, a sensory center, exercise equipment, gaming, and more.


Direct support for individuals to participate in, one-on-one recreational opportunities in the community in our FunOne program when an individual has no personal funds to pay for concert tickets, sporting events; movies, dinners, and more!


Direct support for individuals for clothing, shoes, medical equipment, recreation, gifts and more when there is no other funding available.

Why We Give

We believe everyone is capable of helping in some way. Whether it's a simple compliment, a thank you note or a donation, the ability to share brings happiness to us. We know firsthand that the people served by Choices have needs all year long. Here's our challenge to everyone reading this .... reach out to Choices to learn about their volunteer opportunities - donate a prize for one of their events - donate cash or donate your time. You can make a difference.

Crypto Donations

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause. You can find our accepted cryptocurrencies in an FAQ. Coming Soon

Stocks, Bonds, & Mutual Funds

Support Choices’ work by making a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. In addition to making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities, a gift of appreciated securities offers you significant benefits. These include an immediate charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock and avoidance of capital gains taxes that would normally be due upon sale.  Choices In Community Living Charitable Tax Exempt number is 31-1126222

IRA Charitable Gifts

  • Individuals age 70½ and older can distribute up to $100,000 each year from their IRAs to the Choices In Community Living and other charities without counting the distribution as income.
  • The ability to make this gift directly from IRA accounts is now a permanent part of the U.S. tax code. The gift amount counts toward your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), and your taxable income is lowered by the amount of your qualified charitable distribution (QCD).
  • Gifts must be completed before December 31 to be eligible in the current tax year.

Bequests & Leaving a Gift in Your Will

  • Gifts in your Will and bequests can take many forms. A bequest is the simplest and easiest way to make a significant gift to Choices after your lifetime. These types of giving provide flexibility as you retain your assets.  You can change your mind at any time to reflect your charitable giving and philanthropic objectives.
