Tax Credits and Contributions

ALIVE relies heavily on support from the community to provide our programs and services. ALIVE is registered as a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization, so gifts to ALIVE are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please consult your tax advisor to learn more about your eligibility for deductions.

Donations may be made by mail to:
P.O. Box 28733
St. Louis, MO 63146

To make a donation by credit card, please click the DONATE button above or call Maggie at 314.993.7080.

Gifts from Corporations

Businesses may make gifts that are unrestricted or are earmarked to fund expenses for a specific program. We also have sponsorship levels for special events, such as our annual golf tournament, wine tasting, and trivia nights. Please visit our Upcoming Events page for more information.

Donors are encouraged to check with their employers to see if the company has a matching gift program--an easy way to make your donation go even further! Many companies support their employees' philanthropic efforts by matching all, or a portion of, individual gifts made by employees.

Estate Planning

ALIVE also accepts planned gifts. Please contact us for more information about how to include ALIVE in your estate planning.

In-Kind Gifts

See ALIVE's wish list to learn about in-kind donations we can use in our programs and services.

Gifts from Groups

ALIVE is always grateful when organizations give financial contributions to recognize the value of the services we provide to the community. Some examples include holding a car wash, food collection, bake sale, rummage sale, barbecue, or bowl-a-thon. If you would like to create your own fundraising event or activity to benefit ALIVE, we do ask that you follow some simple guidelines. Please call or email one of our offices to learn more.
