The Mockingbird Society's board-approved Gift Acceptance Policy establishes that stocks will be immediately sold upon taking possession. Therefore, our preference is to ask that stocks be sold by the donor's agent with the proceeds being sent to The Mockingbird Society. Please contact Brian Lawrence, Director of Development, at (206) 407-2136 if you would prefer that The Mockingbird Society handle the transaction.
Establish a Planned Gift
We are deeply honored when individuals or couples choose to create a legacy gift to benefit the children, youth and families we serve. Because such gifts often are complex, we recommend a personal consultation. Please contact Brian Lawrence, Director of Development, at (206) 407-2136 to set up a visit.
Donate Real Estate or Personal Property
Real estate and personal property are accepted on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Brian Lawrence, Director of Development, at (206) 407-2136 to set up a visit.
Donate Goods or Services
Since a majority of our work involves advocacy and we do not provide the same level of direct service as a child placing agency, we often refer people wishing to donate tangible goods (clothing, supplies, furniture, etc.) to either a child placing partner or another foster care organization that accepts tangible goods. Please contact our Development office at (206) 323-KIDS (5437) to discuss options for donating goods.
We are always seeking donations of services that can support our mission. Please contact our Development office to discuss this option.
Host an Event or House Party
Engaging customers, friends, family and colleagues in fundraising activities is a fun and thoughtful way to showcase your support of The Mockingbird Society while providing critical resources to advance our work.
Our Development team can support your event in many ways, including assisting with communications, planning, and programming. Please contact Brian Lawrence, Director of Development, at (206) 407-2136 to discuss your event idea.
Cause Marketing Campaigns
The Mockingbird Society allows third parties to use our name and/or mark in cause marketing activities, provided that our team reviews, accepts, and approves your project. Please email Brian Lawrence, Director of Development, with the details of your campaign, including what you are proposing to sell, to whom, for how long, and what percentage of proceeds The Mockingbird Society will receive. All cause marketing campaigns must conform with the Better Business Bureau's Standards for Charity Accountability.
Many corporations have matching gift programs and will match your donation. It's an easy way to double or even triple the impact of your personal contribution. Ask your employer if they have a matching program in place.
Sponsor a Mockingbird Society Event
Throughout the year, The Mockingbird Society hosts a number of signature events such as Youth Advocacy Day, Youth & Alumni Leadership Summit, and our Annual Benefit Luncheon. Sponsorships typically start at $2,500. Please contact Brian Lawrence, Director of Development, at (206) 407-2136 to learn more about sponsorship opportunities.
