Other Ways to Give

Volunteer your time and talents

At Easter Seals Eastern PA we rely on volunteers to help us make our mission a reality. Check out our volunteer and events pages for more information on how to get involved.

Amazon.Smile

Amazon.Smile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.con.  The difference is that when you shop on Amazon.Smile using this link http://smile.amazon.com/ch/23-2823542 the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate .05% of the purchase price to Easter Seals Eastern PA.

Donor-advised funds

A donor-advised fund allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support Easter Seals Eastern PA.  Requests can be made to recommend grants to Easter Seals Eastern PA, directly from your donor-advised fund.

Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC)

EITC provides Pennsylvania tax credits to offset the tax liability of a business (or business owner) that makes a qualified charitable contribution benefiting Easter Seals Eastern PA.  The tax credit is taken in the year the contribution is made.  With the contribution's remaining eligibility for federal income tax charitable deduction, there is little cost (pennies to the dollar) to participate in the program.  Additional information is available online at www.newpa.org (type EITC in search box) or by calling the PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) at 717-787-7120.

Two of our programs qualify for EITC - Camp Growing Green and our LEAP program, both helping teens prepare for jobs and independence. Download our EITC Brochure

Business Application Start Date:

Because of the popularity of the program, businesses are encouraged to apply for the credits as early as possible (on the application date).  However, applications are encouraged throughout the year as unallocated credits usually become available.

If you have any questions about Easter Seals Eastern PA and the EITC program, we'll be happy to talk to you.  Please contact Nancy Knoebel, CEO at 610-289-0114, ext 210 or by email at nknoebel@esep.org

In-Kind Gifts

A donor provides an in-kind donation, which is a kind of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money, an item or service is donated (all or in part).  Gifts in kind are distinguished from gifts of cash or stock.  Gifts-in-kind that directly benefit the mission of Easter Seals are greatly appreciated.  Certain in-kind gifts may have to be approved by the Director of Advancement, President & CEO and/or ESEP Board of Directors.

Camperships:

Give a child the gift of a fabulous summer filled with fun, sun and friendship.  Camperships are critical for many kids.  Without financial support, many of our kids would not have the opportunity to participate in our camping programs specially designed to help build self-esteem and confidence through new and challenging experiences.  The friendships formed at camp last far beyond the summer.  Gifts can range from a partial campership to providing many kids with this wonderful experience.
Cost to attend camp:

Camp Lily-day camp (Berks and Lehigh Valley)     $285 per week per camper
Growing Green - residential camp (PEEC)             $1,250 per week per camper

Please mark on the memo line of your check the camp name (Camp Lily-Berks, Camp Lily-Lehigh Valley or Growing Green with the word "Camperships") so that your gift is designated to the camp of your choice.

Wish List Opportunities:

Help Keep smiles up and costs down by donating goods and services from our Wish List.
We're looking for some bright starts that can lighten up our budgets.

Third Party Fund Raisers:

Corporate/Organization/Individual fund raising campaigns - all are welcome and fabulous ways to support Easter Seals Eastern PA.  There are too many opportunities to list but here are a few ways you can support Easter Seals with a third party fund raiser.

The list is endless.  Contact us at info@esep.org or by phone  at 610-289-0114 ext 225 to arrange your third party event or to learn more about how you can support Easter Seals Eastern PA.
