Celebrate a special occasion, a birthday or an achievement in honor or in memory of a loved one. Each donation is recognized with a letter to the individual or family that you designate.
In Kind Contributions
Donations are not always in the form of dollars. GLASA is always in need of donated goods and services. Examples of needs are: Sports Equipment (e.g., elbow/knee pads, therabands or free weights, swim caps, etc.); Traveling team needs (e.g., gas station gift cards, airline frequent flier miles, hotel points, etc.); Technology products (e.g., laptops or desktop computers, copiers, printers, scanners, etc.); and other items for athletes (e.g., bottled water, energy bars, etc.)
Some of our most successful fundraising campaigns have come from the athletes, volunteers and supporters who are passionate about our cause. Want to support GLASA? Past fundraising projects have included:
- Boy Scout/ Girl Scout Projects
- School Projects
- Honor Society Projects
- Bar Mitzvah/Bat Mitzvah Projects
Workplace Giving Programs
Many companies support employee philanthropy by offering matching gift programs. By taking advantage of your corporate matching gift program, you can maximize the value of your gift at no additional cost. These include:
- Employee matching gifts often are dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation
- Volunteer grants where monetary donations are offered as a match for their employees’ volunteer work
- Some corporations offer matching gift programs to the spouses of their company employees and retirees from their companies
