Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies match their employee's charitable contributions.  This allows you to double your gift at no cost to you.  Please ask your company's Human Resources Department for its Matching Gift Form which you can in turn send to us.

Gifts in Honor and Gifts in Memory

You can make a gift to the Mission in honor of or in memory of your friends and loved ones.  A gift to the Mission in honor of a friend or loved one is the perfect birthday, anniversary or Christmas gift for someone who has everything.  We will be sure to send out a gift acknowledgement notifying the individual or family of your kind gift.


Register online to support the Whosoever Gospel Mission with your Genuardi's Supermarket Club Card @ (our eScrip ID# is 149331553) and a portion of your grocery purchases will be donated to us at no additional cost to you.  You can also register your regular credit, debit and store credit cards when you register online.  Every time you use these cards at your favorite stores, the Mission will receive a portion of your purchases at no additional cost to you.  You can also save money and support the Mission by shopping at eScrip's online mall.

Fun and Creative Fundraisers for the Mission

In recent years, a number of families, individuals and groups have used birthday parties, Christmas gift exchanges, flea market and yard sales, anniversary celebrations, bake sales and other special occasions to raise money for the Mission.  Some groups, families and individuals have raised money by doing a walk-a-thon for the Mission, by collecting their loose change for the Mission, by donating the money they saved by not going out for a meal, by holding a product home demonstration (like Tupperware, Southern Living at Home, etc.) and donating the proceeds to the Mission, or by selling stuff on eBay and donating their profits to the Mission.  Your creativity can soar in this area - there are endless ways to have fun while raising money for the Mission!

Wills and Estate Planning

Please consider putting the Mission in your will.  Over the years, bequests have literally saved the day for the Mission.  Including the Mission in your will is a gift that will keep on giving and living.  Please contact your attorney to include the Mission in your will.

Appreciated Stocks, Bonds and Other Securities

Give a gift of appreciated stock to the Mission.  If you held the stock for more than 12 months, you can reduce your taxable income, save capital gains tax and get a tax deduction as well.  Please call Bob Emberger at (215) 438-3094 for information on how you can transfer your gift of stock, bonds or other securities to the Whosoever Gospel Mission.

Planned Giving (Charitable Remainder Trusts, etc.) and Annuities

These gifts often provide many tax benefits for you and are also a great way to support the Mission.  Please contact your attorney or financial advisor to see how you can support the Mission through these gifts.
