More Ways to Give

Give by phone 

Please call us at (708) 383-7500, ext. 106 to make a credit card gift by phone. 

Memorial and Honor Giving 

Pay tribute to a loved one, mark a special occasion, thank a caregiver or show gratitude to an important person in your life by donating in his or her name. 

Gift Planning 

Protect your financial security while sustaining a cause you believe in with a planned gift to Thrive. Including a bequest to Thrive in your will or trust enables you to leave a lasting legacy and helps ensure that accessible, affordable mental health care in our community remains available far into the future. 

Bequest Intentions 

Bequests allow you to leave a future gift as part of your will or estate plan. Bequest gifts are a simple way to make a big impact for years to come. 

Here is sample bequest language you can share with your attorney: 

I give, devise, and bequeath to Thrive Counseling Center, an Illinois not-for-profit corporation, having its principal offices in the Village of Oak Park, State of Illinois, (a specific amount or a percentage of the estate) to be used for its general purposes (you may insert an area of Thrive you wish to support).” 

If a gift is restricted: 

In the event the (purpose of the restriction) can no longer be served, my gift may be used for other appropriate purposes as reasonably determined by Thrive.” 

Donor-Advised Fund Giving  

Use a donor-advised fund to easily support Thrive while also gaining favorable tax benefits. 

Corporate and Foundation Giving 

Support important community mental health programs and initiatives while also including your organization and staff in an important cause. 

Monthly Giving 

Support Thrive in exactly the way you want at an amount that fits your monthly budget. 

Matching Gifts 

Double or possibly triple the value of your donation to Thrive, at no additional cost to you, through your employer’s matching gift program. 

Gifts of Stock and Securities 

Donating shares of securities like stocks, bonds and mutual funds is a tax-wise alternative to a cash contribution. 

Gifts of Property and Insurance 

Non-cash options also are great ways to support Thrive. 

In-Kind Donations

We have a long and productive partnership with the The Economy Shop, a reseller that donates its proceeds to seven charities including Thrive. Please donate your gently used and new items to them so we can raise additional funds for Thrive. Bring your donations to 103 S. Grove Avenue, Oak Park. The open donation door is located on the South Blvd. side of the building.
