How You Can Help

Donate ONLINE using your PayPal account or a credit/debt card


Donate from your salary

The support provided by regular payroll gifts is absolutely vital to our programs to help children. In some cases, the money raised is matched by your company.
 Regular payments deliver the sustained, stable funding necessary to deliver the ongoing help required to make a difference in our children’s lives. Your regular donation will ensure exactly this type of secure support.

Individual fundraising

Your support is greatly appreciated. It will make a real difference to the lives of our children. The Gift from the Heart Foundation relies entirely on voluntary donations to fund our vital work for children.

Many volunteer opportunities are available. Gain experience, meet people and help the children. The skills and experiences that you acquire while volunteering can often turn out to be useful in your career development and even in your life in ways you may or may not expect. The volunteer experience may help relieve stress, enhance your resume or help you test out an interest in a new role or even a new career. Some volunteers gain leadership experience, which helps build the confidence necessary to move up within an organization. The Gift from the Heart Foundation is willing to serve as a reference, so don’t be afraid to join our group. You’ll have a lot of fun too!

Please contact our office at or call 847-671-2711 for ways that you can help volunteer your time or services.

Please help put a smile on a child’s face!
