Make A Donation

Help make a difference in Golden Valley and consider a tax-deductible donation of $10, $20, $30, or more.

There are two ways to give. If you choose to pay by check or money order, complete this form and follow the guidelines for mailing or drop-off. This method of giving allows the most flexibility for choosing gift size and allocation.

If you choose to pay by credit card, keep in mind your donation will be allocated evenly to the organizations you designate, due to the limitations of our payment software.

Thank you!
