Donations allow us to provide our services at a low cost to public agencies and at virtually no cost to private families. We are one of only several children's homes with this capability. In fact, many of our services are provided free of charge. Gateway Woods needs your support to continue to 'turn lives around.'
There are many ways that you can be an advocate for the children and families we serve on a daily basis. If you wish, you can donate to either our general operating fund or you can specify that your gift go to a specific program in our ministry. All financial gifts and non-cash donations are tax-deductible, and you will receive a receipt for your records. You may make a donation to Gateway Woods in one of the following ways:

Automated Giving via EFT
Every adult should have a will. With a will, you are able to extend your Christian stewardship values beyond your lifetime. It is important that you, not the government, dictate how your money will be dispersed.
Gifts of Stock
Turn your investments into cash without losing a large portion of capital gains to taxes. A gift of stock gives you an immediate charitable tax deduction.
Farming presents special opportunities to make donations and reduce taxes. By donating a farm commodity, you qualify for a business deduction for your cost of production. You may also reduce your self-employment tax.
This is a great way to help Gateway Woods while securing your future. It provides guaranteed fixed payments for life and frees you from managing funds that you intend to eventually give away.
Charitable Remainder Unitrust
By giving securities or real estate through a Charitable Remainder Unitrust, you benefit substantially with an immediate tax deduction, plus you avoid tax on the appreciated value.
Many companies offer matching donations towards charitable organizations.
We can also work in cooperation with numerous professionals, including The Apostolic Christian Endowment and The Mennonite Foundation, to facilitate certain planned gifts.
