Workplace Giving – If your employer matches charitable gifts, you could double your gift to Britepaths! Contact your employer’s HR department to see if you can have your gift matched and to learn how to make it happen. Don't forget about the CFC Campaign or the United Way Campaign! If your employer participates in either of these campaigns, consider designating Britepaths. Our designation numbers are below.

Gifts of stocks, bonds, and other securities – You can support our work without even opening your wallet! A gift of your appreciated stock, bonds, or mutual funds allows us to bring security and promise to the financial well-being of struggling families, while offering you the two-part benefit of receiving an immediate tax deduction and avoiding capital gains tax. The amount of your gift will be determined by the value on the day it is transferred into Britepaths’ account.
