Other Ways To Give

Planned Giving


The long-term commitment of a planned gift lets you create a personal legacy in support of Family Promise of the South Bay. A planned gift means that Family Promise of the South Bay will be able to continue to provide much-needed support for children and their families in the South Bay.

Planned gifts take many forms and may include:

  • General Bequest

  • Life Insurance

  • Pension & Retirement Benefits

  • Donor-Advised Fund

  • Family Foundation

  • Charitable Gift Annuity

When you choose to make a planned gift to The Sharing Place, we suggest that you seek the counsel of your personal financial advisor, attorney, accountant, banker or insurance professional. Sarah Auernhammer of Thrivent Financial has volunteered to work with the Family Promise community to help you navigate this process.  You can contact her directly at sarah.auernhammer@thrivent.com.

Thank you for considering Family Promise of the South Bay in your planned giving process.

In-Kind Donations

In-kind donations reduce expenses at Family Promise of the South Bay and we make new friends too! The easiest way to collect donations is to order and ship them directly from our Amazon.com wish list found here. However, if you prefer, you can also collect items and drop them off at our office.

Below is a list of items we use regularly, but we also accept unique donations not appearing on our list. Prior to dropping off a donation, we encourage you to call us at 310.782.8196 to confirm our current needs. We acknowledge each donation in writing for tax purposes.
