Honor A Loved One
Is there an individual living or deceased that has positively impacted your life? Consider a gift as a memorial or to honor a wedding, birthday, anniversary, graduation or other special occasion. These individuals will be honored in our next newsletter and a card will be sent to whomever you choose.
Employee Matching Gifts
Many companies in West Michigan allow employees and retirees to double their gifts to a nonprofit organization by matching their gift from corporate funds. Check with your human resource department to see if your company will match your Dégagé donation. Click here for a list of local companies who have employee match programs.
