Giving Opportunities

Your gift to Galloway Ridge, Inc. makes a difference, enhancing programs and services to promote the overall quality of life of the community’s residents.

Residents and their families may make unrestricted gifts and gifts to be used for designated purposes. A memorial fund may be established by family and friends and may be designated for a particular purpose or permanent memorial. Gifts may also be made to honor a living resident or some other person whom the donor wants to recognize. All monetary gifts are permanently recorded and acknowledged in the Galloway Ridge Annual Report.

Matching donation programs are a big part of corporations’ social responsibility initiatives, but awareness of them is often shockingly low. As a result, billions of dollars that could go to deserving nonprofits and vital social programs are never distributed. Please check to see if the company you work for or retired from has a gift matching program. If so, you could double the impact of your thoughtful gift.

Galloway Ridge, Inc. is a not-for-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization,employer identification number (EIN): 56-2277623.

Donations to the following Funds are tax deductible, subject to the advice of your tax accountant. Gifts to Funds must be liquid assets. Your entire gift benefits only the Fund you select.
