Ways to Give

Our mission is to support Highland Rivers in building and sustaining one community of recovery advancing mind, body and health. As a not-for-profit, 501(c)3, the Highland Rivers Foundation relies on donations from individuals, families, corporations and foundations to fund or enhance funding for programs that benefit individuals, their families and our communities. Donations also help cover the cost of unreimbursed services, purchase needed equipment, and fund capital and facility improvement projects. By becoming a donor, you are becoming an integral partner in supporting and raising awareness of mental health and substance use recovery and wellness.

You can support the Highland Rivers Foundation in a variety of ways:

A monetary gift to support the Highland Rivers Foundation is the easiest way to give, and your gift is tax-deductible. After contributing, you will receive an acknowledgment letter for your tax records. If possible, you may be able to enhance your contribution by leveraging your company’s matching gift program.

Make an Online Donation

You may wish to make a gift to the Highland Rivers Foundation to honor the memory of a loved one, in honor of an accomplishment or to mark a milestone in someone’s life. The Highland Rivers Foundation will send an acknowledgement card to those who your donation has honored (but which will not include the amount of your gift) and you will receive a letter confirming your gift for your tax records.

Individuals may also choose to provide for the long-term support of the Highland Rivers Foundation through a will bequest, trust, charitable gift annuity, life insurance policy, stock or retirement account. We will work with you or your financial advisors to develop a donation plan that benefits you and the Highland Rivers Foundation.

Raising money for the Highland Rivers Foundation to honor a loved one or friend is a great way to raise awareness and involve your friends, family and community. Websites such as Crowdrise.com provide safe and secure internet fundraising tools for you and your friends and family. Special events – such as golf or bowling tournaments, 5K runs or walks – provide a great way to involve your community in supporting the work of the Highland Rivers Foundation.
