One-Time Monetary Gifts by Cash, Check or Credit Card
Monetary gifts provide immediate funds to enhance our programs, services and equipment.
Monthly Monetary Donations
Automatically withdrawn from your bank account, monthly donations are an easy and convenient way to provide continuous support for the needs of Marquardt Village residents and the community.
An employer, business or organization can substantially increase the value of your gift. Let us know if your gift to the Marquardt Foundation can be matched.
Gifts in Memory or in Tribute
These gifts honor the memory of a loved one or acknowledge people on special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. With a gift of $1,000, you can remember your loved one with an inscription on the Remembrance Wall.
We appreciate donated services, products and other items such as furniture, art, jewelry and equipment as well as items for a specific event such as materials and supplies, books and food. Check with event coordinators, department directors or the Marquardt Foundation’s Chief Development Officer for what’s needed. We’re incredibly thankful for your generosity. Due to space and other limitations, we may not be able to accept every donation every time.
Restricted and unrestricted endowments provide a secure, ongoing source of income for the Marquardt Foundation. Endowments start at $10,000 and can be named after a friend, family member or loved one.
Gifts of Securities or Other Assets
Stocks, securities and real estate can be transferred to a brokerage account maintained by Marquardt Foundation. The assets may be sold or invested for the long-term to benefit the Foundation and Marquardt Village
