The Broward Partnership offers a wide variety of opportunities for individuals, companies and organizations to make a contribution that will have a lasting impact, not just for the homeless but for the entire community. Gifts may be directed toward a specific program or simply to wherever they are needed most in order to further our mission of reducing homelessness in Broward County.

The following are ways you can help:

Cash Contributions Gifts of Stock     Planned Gifts
                     
Endowment Gifts         In-Kind Donations Sponsor a Meal
                     
Plan a Fundraising Event
or Clothing Drive
        Volunteer        

Cash Contributions
Cash and checks are a convenient way to give to Broward Partnership.  Honor a loved one with a gift to the Broward Partnership on holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, and other special occasions. Memorial gifts are also a meaningful way to honor the life and spirit of a special person. You can make an online donation by clicking here or mail a check to Broward Partnership, 920 NW 7th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311.

Gifts of Stock
Appreciated securities are excellent assets to donate to the Partnership.  Publicly traded securities will be counted at the value on the date donated. Closely held stock may be accepted with an appropriate appraisal or per-share, cash-purchase price of the most recent trade.  Gifts of securities to the charitable gift annuity program will be converted to cash as soon as practicable.

Gifts of Personal Property

Gifts of personal property could include art or automobiles, while real property gifts could include homes and farms, such as those with estate plans for the donor and/or beneficiaries of the donor. It is important that you contact your financial, tax and legal counsel to fully understand the implications and potential benefits of the transaction.

Planned Gifts
One of the easiest and longest-lasting giving vehicles to continue your legacy well into the future is through a planned gift.  

Planned gifts are those that take place at some date in the future, over a period of time, or that allow you to retain an interest in the donated property.  There are several types of planned gifts, both simple and complicated, that are ideal ways for you to continue to use property currently and to benefit the Broward Partnership for many years to come.  

Whether it's naming the Partnership as one of the beneficiaries in your will, life insurance policy or retirement plan, it's very simple to continue your charitable giving after you're gone -- making a difference in the lives of future generations.  Additional means of planned giving are endowments and charitable remainder trusts among several others.  

To learn more about the many planned gift options, please contact Michael Long, Chief Development Officer 954.832.7029 or via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Endowment Gifts
Some donors wish to have their gifts make a difference forever.  These donors may wish to consider a gift to our Endowment Fund.  In this perpetual fund, the principal amount of this gift is invested and only the interest each year is allocated to the organization's greatest needs.  Another option available to you is that you can support an existing fund, the Bill Keith Memorial Endowment Fund.  This fund, named after one of our founding Board members, was created to address the individual needs of our residents such as tuition for job training, tools, or clothes for employment.  
In the endowment fund, the principal gift is permanently invested and continues to grow in perpetuity.

Breaking Bread, Breaking Barriers
For the homeless, hunger is a constant companion, and a communal meal provides both sustenance and a way to connect with others. The Broward Partnership's Breaking Bread, Breaking Barriers program offers the opportunity for families, companies, professional associations, faith-based organizations and others to sponsor, cook and serve a nutritious meal for the homeless residents at our center.
