Ways to Give

Monthly Gifts: allow us to respond swiftly to urgent needs as they arise throughout the year. Ask your bank to issue automatic monthly checks to NILP or sign up here and check the box to make it a “recurring donation.”

Memory or Honorary Gifts: honor a loved one, friend or colleague by donating in their memory or honor. Your gift will be acknowledged to the individual and/or family.

Events: sponsor, volunteer or donate (in-kind or financial) at one of our events.

Matching Gifts or Workplace Giving: some employers will match your donation or offer to withhold a portion of your paycheck and donate it to a nonprofit. Ask your Human Resources department if they participate in matching gift or workplace giving programs. 

Planned Gifts: leave a legacy by including NILP in your will or trust or naming us as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, retirement account, charitable gift annuity or donor-advised fund. These gifts can be arranged through your financial advisor or attorney.
