Ways to Donate

Giving to MEND can take a variety of forms. Consider the option that works best for you:

  • Pledge a monthly contribution. It’s easy. Write a check or specify an amount that will be automatically billed to your Visa or MasterCard.
  • Ask your company if they match charitable gifts. Your company may match any contribution you make to MEND. Imagine, a monthly donation of $25 from you will equal $50 to MEND!  (Download a list of Matching Gift Programs in the Los Angeles area.)
  • Designate MEND for the United Way or Combined Federal Campaign. During your company’s annual campaign, remember to designate MEND as a recipient.
  • Give a Gift of Love in honor or memory of someone special. For the holidays, a Gift of Love is an alternative to other holiday gift-giving programs. In lieu of flowers, or a condolence gift, send a donation in memory of the loved one to MEND.
  • Remember MEND in your Will. After you have remembered your children and those special to you, consider designating a portion of your estate or specific valuables to MEND. Visit our MEND Legacy Society page to learn more!
