Ways to Give

DONATE

As the immigration debate rages on and new restrictions and inhumane practices are revealed weekly, RAICES has become a beacon of hope for many. We proudly wear the banner of Immigration Defenders and we welcome those who stand beside us. So many of our supporters have reached out in so many ways and we welcome them to the fight. Whether you just want to make a donation or give in another way, join us in making a difference.

DONATE YOUR AIRLINE MILES

Did you know that you can donate airline miles to reunify immigrant and refugee families and to allow these families to make their way to their sponsors in the United States. Donating airline miles is a perfect way to make a difference in the lives of immigrant friends, families, and neighbors.

RAICES has partnered with Miles4Migrants and as part of our partnership, we want to ask our supporters to donate in a new way – their airline miles.

ROUND UP AND DONATE WITH LYFT

Your next Lyft ride could help defend immigrant and refugee rights. We’ve partnered with Lyft so that your small donations can help make a big change. When you ride, Lyft can round up your payments to the nearest dollar, and donate the difference to RAICES. Learn more about how you can make your rides count. Want to join in?

  1. Download the Lyft app
  2. Open the main menu by tapping the icon in the top left corner of your app
  3. Tap ‘Donate’ in the menu
  4. Select ‘RAICES’
  5. Tap ‘Round up and donate’ and that’s it!!

DONATE STOCK

A donation of an appreciated asset is a powerful way to support RAICES and the families we serve. To make a gift of stock, learn more here.

DONATE BY WIRE TRANSFER

DONATE CARS

Ready to trade in your old car? Consider donating it instead. Your tax benefit will be that much greater, and you’ll support our mission with the proceeds from the donation of your vehicle.

DONATE YOUR BIRTHDAY

Your special day comes only once a year. Instead of gifts, ask for donations to support our work to defend and empower the migrant families who need it most. Pledge your birthday now. Get reminded to start your fundraiser later.

MATCHING GIFTS

Many companies will match an employee’s charitable gift to an approved 501(c)3 non-profit. Please check with your human resources department to find out if your company matches donations! Your gift can do double duty when it’s matched by your employer! Our EIN is 74-2436920. You can find out more on our matching gifts page.

IN-KIND DONATIONS

We are temporarily unable to accept any in-kind donations. As soon as we have the space, will be able to continue accepting in-kind donations.

RAICES’ clients are often in need of supplies such as food, clothing, shoes, toys or other items that could be helpful when setting up a new life for yourself in a foreign country. If you knit hats or sew teddy bears and you want to donate these items to RAICES, please contact us to let us know. We would love to take these donated items to our clients. We can give you documentation for the fair market value of the donated item(s) that you can use for your tax purposes.

MAKE RAICES A BENEFICIARY IN YOUR ESTATE PLANNING

Everyone should plan for the future. When you’re ready to decide what should be done with your estate, please consider making RAICES a beneficiary in your planning.
