Honor and Memorial Gifts

Workplace Giving

Many companies and governmental agencies have programs that enable their employees to make donations through payroll deductions. If you would like to support Hope Services through your workplace giving program, please look for "Hope Services" in your workplace giving campaign brochure then note the corresponding designation code number, and fill it in on your pledge card. If you do not find a listing, then simply write Hope Services, 30 Las Colinas Lane, San Jose, CA 95119 on your pledge card.

Many companies will match their employees’ charitable gifts one-to-one, and some will even match two-to-one or three-to-one. Check with your employer to find out if your company has a matching gift program and what the process is for arranging the matching gift.

Endowments and Planned Gifts

Make Hope Services part of your future plans. The rewards go far beyond the potential tax savings.
