Reward Points. Many companies offering reward points allow you to donate them for charitable purposes. When you designate The Custody Project as your charitable recipient, yours can help our families in need.
Weddings: The I DO Foundation. Couples and guests making wedding-related purchases can help TCP without a dime leaving a pocket. When a Gift Registry is lodged with I DO's partner stores and TCP is designated as the charitable beneficiary, a percentage of 10% or less will be deducted automatically from those purchases and sent as a donation to us. I DO also allows a couple to create a Charity Registry so that their guests can donate to the charity of the couple's choice in lieu of purchasing a gift for them. When wedding couples do this, The Custody Project receives approximately 90% of your donation, and 100% when you elect to cover I DO's processing fee. (This Just Give program may end on December 31, 2016. When you click on The I DO Foundation Donation Registry link, only our address and mission statement may be visible until you log in). Just Give: 866.587.8448.
Philanthropic Gift Cards. When you purchase charitable gift cards, typically you choose the value of the card, your recipient chooses the charity, their charity receives a donation—and everyone wins. Email cards can be sent without cost, and the company may mail/email both gift card(s) for you. When gift card recipients designate The Custody Project, our families benefit.

Donor information must be entered precisely the first time without error and exactly match credit card information on file, otherwise the data will be rejected and TCP will be charged fees regardless. Also, TCP does not receive donor information in all cases and cannot send a receipt for tax purposes to those individuals. To avoid these issues, we urge donors to use other donate buttons on our site such as The PayPal Giving Fund, which sends 100% of your donation to us. (For support, call Bank of America @ 704.386.5687 and 800.430.7161).
