Yes we are. As a non-profit, all donations given to Living Alternatives can be receipted. Gifts should be tax deductible, but we recommend you check with an accountant to see if your donation can be written off as tax free.
Living Alternatives is not affiliated with any church. We partner with all sorts of churches who believe that life is a gift from God. Living Alternatives also understands that we are not a church, but merely a ministry seeking to supplement what the church is already doing in communities. Our desire is to be a blessing and a benefit to churches that surround our local Pregnancy Resource Centers.
As a faith based organization, the entire operating budget for our 12 centers is funded privately, without the aid of federal or state grant money. We depend on the faithful giving of individuals and churches that believe our ministry is important to our community. We have people who support us annually, monthly, one time, as well as people who support us through our fundraisers. We're always looking for more people to hear how they can invest in the lives of the women who come to our centers looking for help.
We are a government registered 501c3. As such, your donations will be receipted, and as mentioned above, you should be able to deduct said gifts on your income taxes. In order to confirm that, we ask you to consult your accountant. To give a one-time or recurring gift online, you can go to our donation page or find a link on any of our 12 centers pages.
We are always in need of volunteers to come and serve at our centers. We are very careful about who we bring on to our volunteer staff, so for those working with clients, there is an application process. If you'd rather work behind the scenes, we have opportunities all the time in each of our centers. The best way to find out how you can partner with your local PRC is by calling the director of that center. Those telephone numbers (or email addresses) can be found on our Locations page. You can also submit a volunteer application on our website.
There are a few ways. We would love for you to check our two spots on our website. The first is our Get Involved page. This site has information on ways you can get involved that would bless our local centers. The other place we encourage you to check out is our Events page. It will have information about several of our upcoming events that will be taking place near you. Attending one of our events is maybe the easiest way to see what we're all about.
