- Donate cash – a financial contribution is the most effective type of donation;
- Offer gifts like clothing, food, and furniture. Other in-kind donations include services such as administrative support, meeting/office space, website development, or expertise in strategic planning and legal advice; and
- Volunteer – giving personal time to a worthy cause is one of the most effective ways to contribute to an organization.
Consider volunteering for your local Community Emergency Response Team(CERT). Volunteers assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. Find a local CERT near you.
