Cash Gifts

Cash gifts and monthly, quarterly, or annual pledge donations create the most impact. You may donate online to make a secure, tax deductible financial donation with your credit card, or send donations to:

HomeFirst
Development Department
Sobrato Center for Nonprofits
507 Valley Way
Milpitas, CA 95035

Workplace Giving (Company Matching)

You may be able to double your donation to HomeFirst. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match. Click here for matching gift info, forms, and guidelines from your employer.

Monthly Giving

Giving monthly helps our clients year-round. Knowing we can count on your contribution each month helps us to budget for the programs that are vital to our efforts to end homelessness in Santa Clara County. Set up your tax-deductible monthly donation now and each month, your credit card will be automatically charged for any amount you choose. You may change your monthly gift amount or cancel it at any time.

Event Sponsorship

For nearly two decades, our “Rivers of Chocolate” benefit for homeless services was Northern California’s premiere wine, sweets, and savories tasting event. Now we’ve reinvented Rivers of Chocolate as “Home Sweet Home” in a more intimate setting on the grounds of the Triton Museum in Santa Clara. As an individual or corporate sponsor, you’ll directly benefit people living on the streets and be associated with a worthy cause, plus you’ll have access to  affluent Silicon Valley professionals who attend the event and be able to host your clients or employees as VIPs.

Planned Giving

We offer several ways to gift your legacy. Planned giving of cash, stock, and bequests will make a lasting impact on homelessness in our community.

Thank you! With you, ending homelessness is possible.
