If you are looking for an opportunity to help others in a meaningful way, we offer several options to volunteer with us.

Give Monthly

By donating monthly to POTS you enable us to better project our income and continue to deliver consistent programs and services, year-in and year-out. Just click “Monthly” as the Donation Frequency when you donate. It’s a convenient way to make your giving automatic. Make adjustments whenever you wish.

Employer Matching Gifts

A growing number of companies offer a matching gift program to employees as a benefit. This enables you to double, or even triple your contribution to POTS, and have a greater impact on the lives of our Bronx neighbors. Ask your Human Resources or Payroll Department if your company offers a matching gift program.

If you have any questions, please contact Olivia Pane, Development Assistant at opane@potsbronx.org or 718-220-4892 x160.

Gifts by Will

For more than 40 years, POTS has been helping its neighbors in the Bronx lead more stable lives. A simple yet powerful way to make sure that its mission of thoughtfulness and selflessness endures for another 40 years – and beyond – is to include POTS in your will. A willed gift can designate a specific dollar amount or it can specify a percentage of your estate after other disbursements. It can represent a very important means of support for POTS operations – and it can give you the satisfaction of knowing you have helped to take a bite out of poverty for New Yorkers well into the future.

A gift by will does not necessarily involve a complex estate plan, nor must a willed gift be made in any minimum amount. POTS’ development team is happy to work with you and/or your financial advisor to help make sure your gift planning meets all of your expectations. For more information, please contact kgarvey@potsbronx.org.
