Giving Types

Ways to Create Impact

Our professional staff and an army of volunteers offer programs, services, homes & relationships that empower mind-body-spirit & community transformation.

Cash Gifts

Outright gifts to endowment funds permit the immediate long-term investment of the gift to provide support either for purposes designated by the donor or, if the donor has made no designation, for purposes chosen by the board of directors. These gifts are most desirable to the organization, because they provide immediate funds or assets that can be invested now to provide ongoing revenue for the organization.

Outright gifts of cash are fully deductible for federal income-tax purposes up to 50% of adjusted gross income. If the donor’s total gifts exceed 50% of adjusted gross income, the excess may be carried forward for tax purposes for up to five additional years.


You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help further our mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can support our cause.

With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to Restorative Partners as part of your estate plan, or you can make a bequest using a beneficiary designation form.
