SOS, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization, but we do have expenses for items such as our telephone messaging service, postage, printing, photocopying, and training for group leaders. We have covered these expenses through individual contributions and any funds from our conferences. We will need to add other sources to do some new things.
Our efforts to generate small grants from foundations have not been successful. (Actually, they have been really disappointing.) However, we plan to keep submitting proposals until one of them comes through. In the mean time, here are some ways that you can help:
Designate SOS, Inc. for your United Way contribution. Our number is 09449. Please make sure that you specify that you want your pledge to go to: Survivors of Suicide, Inc., PO Box 127, Morton,PA 19070-0127
Support SOS through the eScrip Program at Safeway and Genuardi's Markets and other retailers. Our eScrip Group ID is 150301408. Visit eScrip Supporter Registration to sign-up on-line or take our eScrip ID to Customer Service at any Safeway or Genuardi's.
Attention VERIZON Employees! SOS is eligible for the Verizon Foundation Matching Incentive Program. Please request a grant form and designate SOS for your gift to be matched by the Foundation. Thanks!
Make a tax-deductible contribution in any amount. SOS, Inc. is recognized by the IRS as meeting section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code.
We can also use in-kind help with producing, printing, and photocopying our brochures, newsletter, and other materials.
