Each year, Vadis changes the lives of people with disabilities and those experiencing homelessness by helping them identify their goals, get jobs, learn new skills, and obtain affordable housing.
Your contribution to Vadis helps us make a long lasting, dynamic impact in the lives of the individuals we serve. Gifts contribute to the support of people and programs so we can continue to provide the quality, innovative services Vadis is known for. Your contribution is an investment in lives. You really can make a difference.
Ways to Contribute:
Double your Employee Donations:
Many employers (Microsoft, Starbucks, Boeing, Alaska Airlines, CarMax, Intermec, Liberty Mutual/Safeco, etc.) will match (or exceed) their employees' automatic payroll donations and distribute the funds directly to the charity of your choice. Some will match one-time contributions as well. Talk to your HR department or manager to find out if your employer is a matching contributor.
Make your Purchases Count:
Retailers like Kroger (Fred Meyer/QFC) and Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchases directly to nonprofit organizations! Simply specify Vadis as your charity of choice when you register or update your account.
Ordering through AmazonSmile.com offers the same prices and shipping and they'll even show you how much your contribution has added up to. At Kroger stores, it’s as easy as swiping your reward card or entering your phone number at check-out. You earn rewards and Vadis receives a donation, it’s a win-win!
Volunteer your Time:
Ask Vadis about volunteer opportunities. Volunteers help keep overhead costs down, freeing up more revenue to directly support the individuals we serve. Some employers provide their staff the time off to volunteer and donate dollars to the nonprofit organization as well!
Attend Fundraising Events:
Many businesses offer special events to help raise funds for Vadis programs. All you have to do is visit that restaurant or business and mention you're there for Vadis and a portion of the sale is donated to Vadis! Watch our Events webpage to find an event near you!
Make a Tax-Deductible Donation:
Some people simply want to donate directly, and there are easy ways to do that as well. Checks are accepted at our office headquarters: 1701 Elm Street E., Sumner, WA 98390 and online donations are accepted through PayPal on the Vadis website: www.vadis.org. Vadis is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. Your gift is tax deductible.
Use Social Media to Make an Impact:
Facebook makes it simple to raise money for your favorite nonprofits, especially during your birthday month. Not only can hosting a fundraiser directly support Vadis services, but it’s also a great opportunity to share what Vadis does with your followers. Facebook takes care of all the administrative work and sends the donation directly to the nonprofit organization.
Turn your Crafts into Contributions:
Do you love quilting? Knitting? Vadis distributes winter caps, socks, sweaters and blankets through our Homeless Services Program and would love to partner with you to share your labors of love with those in need.
Donate Goods and Services:
Vadis has opportunities throughout the year to earn funds through silent auctions and raffles if we have goods and services to offer. Donating gift certificates, event tickets, or other sought-out items inspires others to contribute.
Whichever method you choose to support Vadis and the individuals we serve,
You are truly helping Vadis Change Lives.
