Ways to Give

At The Salvation Army, 83 cents of every dollar is used to directly support programs and services.  Our supporters have become part of a network of thousands of Northern California residents who donate their time, money and talents to the work of The Salvation Army.  We thank you for your generosity and your support for our mission.

All financial contributions are tax-deductible, as provided by law. If you choose to make a financial donation, you will receive a confirmation at the end of your transaction - with an acknowledgement of your gift to follow in the mail. This acknowledgement will serve as your receipt.
