Tips for Spontaneous and Planned Giving

Spontaneous or Planned, your kindly, thoughtful, generous, and essential donations keep us rolling. Occasional, monthly or yearly check and cash contributions are vital. Planned giving, of even $1 per month, allows our work to continue. When you contribute, you touch a family that might otherwise have been left without help or hope, so please keep the following tips in mind:


Grants. Most mothers need the cash option. It carries the most leverage with the bills which must be paid. This is the best gift. Gift certificates usable anywhere in the USA, preferably with no expiration date, and from nationwide stores are helpful when they can be exchanged for cash or used to buy food, clothing, or other necessities for moms and their children wherever the family resides.


Raffles. Winners like to have the cash option!!

To donate cash prizes or items of value for our Raffles, contact us. Let us know if you have gift certificates, items or cash for prizes. Your contributions are appreciated and make the Raffles fun. Thank you for your support and to Dancing Dog Mining Company for its Baby Medallions and cash awards.

For further information, please see Raffles


Volunteers. To help with fundraising for moms and their children, share TCP with others. To distribute TCP's fundraising flyers and raffles in your area, please download the appropriate forms and information from this website. You can also contact us indicating the number of raffles and flyers needed, and forward an SASE (self-addressed, stamped envelope) with name, address, and appropriate postage to TCP’s address. Interested sponsors and private donors may thank you, and we thank you too!!

Volunteers can deduct expenses incurred in conjunction with their work, including mileage and phone expenses. And, we can provide you with a letter indicating your service, if this is advisable by your accountant.
