WAYS TO DONATE

Your gift makes a big impact!

Financial Contributions

One-Time Donation
You can make a donation via our secure online donation form, send us a check, or give us a call at 415-625-5217 and we’ll help process your gift. To make a donation by check, please send to:

Shanti Project
Attn: Development Department
3170 23rd Street
San Francisco, CA 94110

Monthly/Recurring Donations
As a recurring donor you can contribute toward future years of compassion, care, and community. You can set up your donation online and it will be automatically charged to your credit card or bank account based on the schedule you choose (monthly, quarterly, annually). You may change or cancel your gift at any time. We are also happy to accept monthly donations via check, which you can set up through your bank’s bill pay service or send to us directly.

Workplace Giving & Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies offer workplace giving programs in which employees can make one-time or recurring donations that are deducted from their paychecks. These gifts are often matched by their employers, doubling or sometimes tripling the impact. If you donate directly to Shanti, check to see if your company has a matching gift program. If you need Shanti to complete any paperwork to process a matching gift, please email it to development@shanti.org.  Don’t hesitate to email us or call if you have any questions.

Gifts of Securities/Stock
You can donate stock, bonds, or mutual funds to Shanti. The total value of the security upon transfer is tax-deductible. Your broker can help you make this donation. Provide them with the following information:

Bank: Wells Fargo Advisors
Account Name: Shanti Project
DTC Number: 0141
Account Number: 8538-0513

Please be sure to let us know about your donation by emailing development@shanti.org.

IRA Distribution

Donor Advised Funds
If you have established a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) you can recommend the sponsoring organization make a grant to Shanti.

Legacy/Planned Giving
Help secure Shanti’s future! By including Shanti in your will, as a beneficiary of a retirement account, life insurance policy, or other estate plans, you will help San Franciscans for generations to come. Individuals who let us know that they have included Shanti in their estate plans will join our Legacy Circle. Read more about Legacy Giving.
