Your support of SNAP may take many forms. Donations may be made in the form of a check, credit card, in-kind contribution, memorial gift, stock, bequest, or your time and talents. Please call the SNAP office at 520-437-9556 with any questions related to your support of SNAP.
Please download, print and complete our Donation Form which you can find here. Then mail the form along with your check to Sunrise Neighborhood Assistance Program, 6890 East Sunrise Drive, Suite 120-298, Tucson, AZ, 85750.
BASHAS’ COMMUNITY CARDS
Do you shop at Bashas’, AJ’s Fine Foods, or Food City? Buy a $25 Bashas’ Community Card from Sunrise Neighborhood Assistance Program (SNAP), then use it to make your purchases at any of these stores. Re-load your card at the checkout counter whenever you have spent it all. Bashas’ donates a portion of your Community Card value to SNAP when you first purchase it and every time you re-load it. Use it like a gift card – only it doesn’t cost you anymore than you would already be spending on your groceries. Consider a Bashas’ card instead of cash as a gift for a friend, neighbor, or service provider. Available by calling 520-437-9556 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can donate to Sunrise Neighborhood Assistance Program (SNAP) with every Amazon purchase you make. Login to Amazon SMILE (smile.amazon.com) and choose Sunrise Neighborhood Assistance Program from the drop down of charitable organizations. Amazon donates a portion of your purchase to SNAP! No added cost to you to help SNAP meet the needs of our older adult neighbors! Go to Amazon SMILE whenever you make an Amazon purchase.
IN-KIND DONATIONS AND SPECIAL EVENT DONATIONS OR SPONSORSHIPS
SNAP relies on local businesses and organizations to help offset operational costs, as well as assist with special events and programs for our clients, their caregivers and families. Donations of sponsorships, merchandise or services for these events and programs are always welcome!
Memorial gifts to SNAP may be given to remember a loved one, friend or a neighbor. Families may specify a memorial gift to the Sunrise Neighborhood Assistance Program in lieu of flowers in a local or distant obituary. Again, please call our office at 520-437-9556 for information.
You may choose to give a gift of stock. SNAP accepts donations of ordinary, publicly traded stocks. Donating appreciated stock that you have held for at least one year may be a very good tax decision. You may be able to receive the full market value charitable deduction, while avoiding a capital gain, as allowed by law. Always consult with your tax advisor to determine how a gift of stock would affect you.
Planned gifts such as bequests are a simple and thoughtful way to provide for SNAP’s future. We all want to be remembered by those we leave behind, with appreciation for the lives we lived, respect for our accomplishments and gratitude for the contributions made to those whose lives we touched. SNAP wants to become part of your legacy and be considered in your estate plan to express your appreciation for the free neighbors-helping-neighbors services we provide. Please consider adding (to your will, living trust or estate plan) a simple provision designating SNAP as a beneficiary of a specific dollar amount or percentage of what remains of your estate after you take care of family members and others to whom you want to leave tangible remembrances.

GIFTS OF TIME AND TALENT
In addition to supporting SNAP financially, many people enjoy investing their time and expertise in our organization as a volunteer. SNAP offers a variety of volunteer opportunities from directly helping or transporting our clients, to working on programs or committees and other special events. You may call the office to request a Volunteer application or view the Volunteer Information page.
As the need for our caring and social services grow, the need for financial assistance grows too and becomes even more vital. Every tax-deductible gift makes it possible to meet the increasing demands of our aging population. With your help, SNAP can remain at the heart of the community and provide programs and services to those who need them most. We so appreciate your support and generosity. You are always welcome to call our office at 520-437-9556 to discuss the special ways you would like to support Sunrise Neighborhood Assistance Program.
Thank you for caring.
