Ways to Give

Cash Contributions

You can make a donation by cash, check or credit card.


You can make a money donation via Venmo.


In Kind Gifts

Alternatives to monetary gifts such as equipment and supplies are always appreciated if they meet a need.

See Wish List below.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to support charitable initiatives. Most companies match dollar for dollar, but some will double or triple an employee’s gift.

Gifts in Honor/ Gifts in Memory

Honoring a family member, friend or colleague with a gift in the their name is a touching way to pay tribute to a special person in your life.

Stock or Securities

Gifts of stock, bonds, or mutual funds are tax-deductible to the full extent of the Internal Revenue Code. Consult with your broker and tax advisor on the best option for you.


A gift of life insurance can be a low-cost yet generous way to make a meaningful contribution by naming Ruth’s Cottage as primary beneficiary of your life insurance policy or as contingent beneficiary should your other beneficiaries not survive you. You can also donate your paid-up insurance policy.

Planned Gift

In certain instances, it may be preferable from an estate, financial, and tax planning perspective to consider long-term gift planning. This can be accomplished through various gift instruments, such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lend trusts, and bequests. Consult with your estate planning/tax advisor on the best option for you.
