Ways to Give

There are several ways you can help us serve our elderly friends.


Memorial Donations

You can remember a loved one by making a contribution in his or her name. We will send a note acknowledging this thoughtfulness to those whom you designate as well as an acknowledgement to you the donor. 


Honorary Donations

You can honor a special occasion of a loved one by making a donation in their name for their special occasion.  We will send a note acknowledging this thoughtfulness to those whom you designate as well as an acknowledgement to you the donor.


Matching Gifts

Check with your employeer about matching gifts – your contribution could go twice as far!  And while we are not a United Way agency, if you participate in a workplace giving campaign you can designate Little Brothers to receive your contribution.


Special Events

Working with your colleagues and community, you can organize a fundraising event such as a bowl-a-thon, a golf outing, dinner, or picnic. We welcome your ideas, your energy and your community spirit.


Sponsorship Gifts

Your company or community group can sponsor activities and events for Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly. Your gift can underwrite a holiday party, a summer picnic, or a month of medical escorts to name just a few examples.


Bequests and Planned Gifts

Bequests are gifts provided by way of a will. By naming Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly, Upper Mighigan as a beneficiary in your will or life insurance policy, you ensure that we will be able to serve lonely elderly people in your name far into the future.


In-Kind Gifts

Donations of office supplies and other items help us keep our overhead low. We also appreciate donations of in-kind services such as IT and mechanic. During holiday seasons, organizing friends or coworkers to gather gifts is another great way to help.


Food Drives

You may organize food drives individually or with a church, school, or other group. By collecting nonperishable goods for our food pantry, you supplement meals for elders on a limited budget.
