    An endowment foundation that supports our organization. If you have friends or relatives who work for the federal or state government, or in corporations that allow donor choice, encourage them to support True Friends.


Gifts of Stock

Giving stocks or bonds often has significant financial advantages for you. It’s also one of the most tax-efficient ways to support True Friends. Giving stock that has been held more than 12 months, offers a two-fold tax savings: a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and  capital gains can be avoided. If you would like to make a gift of stock please complete this form, or for stock transfer information call 952.852.0101 or email giving@truefriends.org.

Gifts in Kind

In-kind gifts have allowed many other badly needed projects, large and small, to go forward. There are times when an individual, group or business can donate gifts in kind that make a huge difference. True Friends can only accept specific items, so please contact 952.852.0101 or giving@truefriends.org to learn more.

Volunteer or Recruit Others

More than 1,000 volunteers are needed each year to support True Friends programming. Please come lend a hand. Find more information on our Volunteer Services page. If you know high school or college students, retirees or others looking for a unique and rewarding experience, tell them about True Friends.  Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals and groups age 14 and up.

Corporate Giving and Volunteering

If you volunteer for True Friends please let us know where you work. Often, when we seek corporate support, they request to know if any of their employees volunteer for us. If we can respond positively, our chances to receive support greatly increase.
