We DO NOT receive funding from federal, state, or local governments to cover our deployment and operational expenses following a disaster. We try very hard NOT to ask our nonprofit partners to cover our expenses either. We believe their funds are better spent helping disaster-impacted residents and communities.
Your donations allow us to not only respond to support first responders, impacted residents, and volunteer organizations immediately after the disaster but also to stay in the community for years after, supporting long-term disaster recovery and rebuilding communities.
monthly giving is easy
Our biggest expenses don't come after the storm but in the weeks and months before the disaster ever happens. Keeping 23 trailers and two trucks insured, fueled, maintained, and deployment-ready is the biggest financial challenge we face. Recurring monthly gifts are what keeps the wheels rolling. It's as easy as one click of the mouse.
FEE-FREE WAYS TO DONATE
Don't like the fees PayPal and others charge? We're not fans either, so we have a couple of ways to give without any fees.
PayPal Giving Fund is an easy way to skip regular PayPal giving processing fees. You'll need to designate Missions on Wheels as the recipient.
Many recurring donors, especially those giving more than $50 a month, have set us up on their bank's "bill pay" system.
Talk to us about planned giving! We are an eligible charity to receive mandatory minimum distributions from an IRS or retirement account.
We are also registered through many Donor Advised Funds offering employer matching gifts. Look for us on Benevity Causes, Network for Good, CyberGrants, Bank of America Foundation, Fidelity Charitable Giving, Greater Houston Community Foundation, and many more!
If your employer offers a Matching Gifts program to match your charitable giving or volunteer hours, please contact D.Costello@MissionsOnWheels.org to double your donation!
