Supporting East House
Campaign for Hope
The annual Campaign for Hope runs from January through December to raise unrestricted funds in support of all of East House’s programs and services. Gifts may be made via cash, check or credit card. Donate here to make your gift today.
Gifts to East House may also be made via stock, allowing the donor to enjoy additional tax savings. If you transfer stock that has been held for more than a year and has appreciated in value, East House can sell the stock, and you will avoid tax on the gain.
Make a donation in honor of a loved one or special friend for any occasion, such as a birthday, promotion, holiday or anniversary. Honorary gifts may be unrestricted or designated to a particular area or program at East House. The honoree will be notified of the gift by East House.
