Give Now Give Later Give Stuff Give Time
Each of us has the ability to make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate. Your one-time gift provides immediate shelter and care for at-risk youth working toward a new life. Since 1988, Covenant House Alaska has served over 25,000 young Alaskans experiencing homelessness, abuse or trafficking. Please save a life and give now.
You have until March 31, 2019 to apply for your Alaska PFD and dedicate a portion of your dividend to Alaska Covenant House. If you've already filed for your PFD, you have until August 31, 2019 to change or adjust your dividend with a pledge to support us.
You can leave a lasting legacy.
Planned Giving to Covenant House Alaska is an investment in our youths’ futures and the well-being of our communities for generations to come. It’s a way to give without impacting your current financial needs. Here are a few of types of Planned Giving available:
- Beneficiary Designations: Naming Covenant House Alaska as the beneficiary of your retirement account, insurance policy, bank account or DAF is a simple way to leave a legacy of love for homeless kids.
- Wills and Bequests: A bequest is a gift by will or revocable living trust. This is an excellent choice if you want to support Covenant House Alaska in the future without affecting the liquidity and use of your assets during your lifetime.
- Charitable Gift Annuity: This is a transfer of assets to Covenant House Alaska, often in the form of cash or stocks. A Covenant House charitable gift annuity may also provide you with tax savings, immediate income, and ensure homeless kids have a chance at a better life.
- Charitable Remainder Trust: A charitable remainder trust can meet your unique investment and giving goals with flexible, individual planning, funding and administering.
The staff at Covenant House Alaska is happy to work with you to develop a plan for your giving. For more information please contact Joe Hemphill, Chief Development Officer, at 907-339-4407 or email@example.com. We also recommend that you consult with your attorney or tax advisor.
Every day we rely on our friends in the community to help us provide for the basic needs for our youth.
Winter Needs: These items are always in demand during the cold winter months.
Chapstick: We can’t keep enough Chapstick in stock! Other toiletries also are also needed, like shampoo, deodorant, lotion and toothpaste.
Sweat pants and socks: Kids often come into shelter with wet, frozen clothes and feet. Extra sweatpants and warm socks are helpful for the outreach team to hand to youth who are in danger from extreme cold.
Soup: CHA provides hot, nutritious soup 24/7, 365 days a year for all youth seeking warm shelter. We can always use soup donations.
Cold weather gear: With below freezing temperatures always in the forecast, donations of cold weather gear are needed.
Bus Passes: To provide safe and warm travel for our teens, allowing them to continue their schooling and jobs.
Baby Products and Clothes: These go to Passage House, our program for pregnant and parenting teens experiencing homelessness with their babies.
We ask that all clothing items and linens be new or gently used and freshly laundered. We are unable to accept worn out, stained or unwashed items. We also cannot accept household items at this time. Donations may be delivered to our Youth Engagement Center at 755 A Street between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday - Sunday. Entrance is in the alley.
