Foundations & Corporate Giving

Donations to Homes for Life come from a variety of venues. In addition to individuals and families, we also seek support from larger agencies such as foundations and corporate sponsors.

• Foundations

Foundation support is critical to the continued existence of HFLF. We apply for grants to help cover gaps in funding that smaller donations cannot cover, such as major renovation projects or upgrading computer systems.

• Corporate

HFLF has become a part of the local community in each of its sites across the county. As such, we reach out to businesses in surrounding areas for support and to foster stronger, healthier communities.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is a way to ensure that your charitable contributions extend beyond the end of your life. When planning your legacies, we encourage you to not only remember your loved ones, but also others in your community who are desperately in need. Your legacy to Homes for Life Foundation can help ensure their futures. Gifts can be structured in a number of different ways to provide tax deductions for your estate or current income taxes, including direct gifts, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and charitable lead trusts to Homes for Life Foundation. Homes for Life encourages donors to consult a tax professional or attorney when making donations of any planned gifts.

• Bequest

Support HFLF by including us in your will. Your gift will allow Homes for Life to continue to provide permanent, affordable housing and services to homeless mentally ill persons in Los Angeles County. Supporters can leave a specific amount or a percentage of their estate to HFLF

• Securities, Bonds, Insurance, Real Estate

Support HFLF donating securities, bonds, life insurance or real estate. Gifts of any of these to HFLF will have a great lasting impact on our program and can offer many benefits to the donor

• Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Charitable Lead Trusts

The gifts above will help HFLF continue to provide our life changing work and provide benefits to the donor

Special Events & Fundraisers

Special Events serve two purposes for HFLF – events provide public awareness for HFLF and provide much needed funds to support our housing and programs. Please join on of our events below or host your own fundraiser for HFLF.

• Pigskin Picks

Pigskin Picks is a sweepstakes to benefit HFLF.

Sponsorships

Homes for Life Foundation has many sponsorship opportunities throughout the year. Sponsor one of our events – Pigskin Picks or Homeless for A Night or sponsor our facilities, programs and services. Sponsorships are available from $1,000 – $50,000. If you would like to become a sponsor of HFLF or one of our events contact Jeff Henson at 310-337-7417 x22 or jhenson@homesforlife.org.

Matching Gifts

Many companies have matching gift programs that will match employee and/or retiree charitable contributions annually. If you are making a contribution to HFLF, ask your employer if they match employee donations. If your company does match employee/retiree gifts, please contact them to obtain a matching gift form. This small step in most cases will double your donation to HFLF. If you have questions or need help, please contact Jeff Henson at 310-337-7417 x22 or jhenson@homesforlife.org.

Workplace Giving

Companies and employers have workplace giving campaigns where employees can designate a payroll deduction to support their charity of choice. If your employer has a workplace giving campaign, ask if you can donate to HFLF through this program or contact Jeff Henson at 310-337-7417 x22 or jhenson@homesforlife.org.
