Growing through Giving

Always Seeking Donations

We accept donations of all kinds: monetary, food, clothing, toys, electronics, and household items. Each can make a positive impact on our community.

An Investment in the Future

Monetary donations help the Sharing Center of Central Brevard to provide assistance to those in our community who are struggling to obtain life’s most basic needs.

Financial assistance is needed to cover extreme emergency services like counseling, rent, mortgage, utilities, prescriptions, vision care and to fill in the gaps in physical donations.

Endowment Fund

Help Create Pathways Home Forever
Sharing Center of Central Brevard has an endowed fund with local Community Foundation for Brevard.

Building a long-term, revenue-producing permanent endowment is one of the best ways our nonprofit organization can ensure sustainability and build a stable financial future.

Our nonprofit endowment fund:

  • Protects our organization’s endowed monies for future needs.
  • Provides annual income, depending on market performance.
  • Demonstrates our commitment to long-range financial planning.
  • Provides a way for you and other donors to give complex gifts such as stocks, life insurance or property.
  • Increases investment yield as nonprofit endowment funds are pooled with the Community Foundation’s other funds to provide maximum return and lower fees.

 

Please consider a gift now to the Sharing Center Endowment Fund.

You need not be wealthy to leave a legacy. Ensuring the sustainability of our organization makes your core values known to others.

Your attorney can guide you through which type of planned giving is right for you and the benefits of each such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, retained life estates or a bequest.
