Many Ways to Give

However you give, your gift has a profound impact on the lives of students and residents at Our Saviour’s Community Services.

Become A Change Maker

The Changemaker’s Club is made up of a cherished group of supporters who give affordable, automated donations each month.

As a Changemaker, you can spread your giving out over the year, which allows you to make a tremendous impact without breaking your budget. Each gift will also go even further by saving on administrative costs like postage, check processing, and printing costs – bringing us that much closer to ending homelessness and eliminating language barriers.

Online Giving

Give online for the easiest and fastest way to make your gift. Your gift will provide access to language education and a pathway home for those who need it most.

Planned Giving

Create a legacy for the future. Leave a gift in your will or give now through gifts of annuities, stocks, and more.

In-Kind Giving

Join our work through the gift of material goods. Your gift will provide critical supplies directly to our students and residents. Check our Wish List for specific, needed items.

Tribute Gifts

Honor or Remember Your Loved One

Show your love and appreciation for someone special by making a gift in their name. Celebrate a birthday, wedding, or holiday; or memorialize a beautiful life. If you wish, we will send acknowledgement of your gift to the honoree or to a friend or family member of the honoree, telling them about the good that’s happening in their name.

Matching Gifts

Maximize your capacity for good

Whether you are currently employed or retired, your employer may amplify your individual support by matching your gift – often dollar for dollar! Your employer may also match your gift of time via volunteer hours with programs like “Dollars for Doers.”

Check with your Human Resources department to learn whether you can multiply your giving power. You can also check our compiled list of known Minnesota employers with matching gift programs.

Tribute Gifts

Honor or Remember Your Loved One

Monthly Sustainers provide consistent support with monthly contributions that are automatically deducted from their credit cards. The Sustainer program offers caring supporters an easy way to incorporate their support of Our Saviour’s programs into their monthly finances. Prefer an auto deduction from your checking account? Call Liz at 612-871-5900 x2.

To become a Sustainer, please visit our online donation page. Please select “I’d like to make this a recurring donation” in the “Gift Type” section of the form. As a Sustainer, you will retain complete control of your giving and may increase, decrease or suspend your contributions at any time.

Matching Gifts

Maximize your capacity for good

One of the best ways to give is through a matching gift program, where your employer will match your donation — often dollar for dollar — which can double or triple your charitable donation power!

Participation in this program is simple: just pick up a Matching Gift Form from your company’s Human Resources or payroll department and send it in with your gift. This is a great way to multiply the impact of your gift.
