In the Spirit of Giving

November 7, 2018

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, here are a few ways you can remember and support the Brothers Christopher at the Inn.

Christmas Donations for the Brothers Christopher – Shirts, Gloves, Hats, Boots

As we share our gifts with family and friends this holiday season, many of us are also considering ways to help others in need. At St. Christopher’s Inn, each year, the Brothers Christopher in residence through the holiday season receive gifts. Each man receives two collared shirts that they can wear during treatment hours. If you would like to contribute to this effort, we welcome donations of collared shirts in all sizes. In addition, as the winter weather sets in, donations of men’s coats, gloves, hats, and boots are always welcome.

There are many creative ways you can support the men in their recovery, so that this might be the last year they spend away from their families during the holidays. Call Christine Madera in our Mission Support Office at 845-424-2142 to discuss your Christmas donation.

Giving Accounts (Donor Advised Funds or DAF)

If you have a DAF/Giving Account, you can log in to your Giving Account and make your grant recommendation to St. Christopher’s Inn. Our Federal Identification Number (EIN) is 13-3668321.

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF), commonly known as a “Giving Account” is a philanthropic vehicle that allows donors to make a charitable contribution of cash, publically-traded stocks, and in some cases, certain liquid assets; receive an immediate tax benefit; and, then recommend grants from the fund over time.

DAFs can be easily set up through a variety of financial institutions. For more information on how to establish a DAF, contact your local community foundation or financial advisor.
