Ways to Give to Boise Rescue Mission Ministries
Boise Rescue Mission Ministries invites you to partner with us to serve our homeless and hungry neighbors. They are men, women, and children across the Treasure Valley. Are you looking to fill a specific need at the Mission? Are you simply interested in donating to a non-profit in the Boise and Nampa area? We welcome donations of all kinds.
Where & How to Donate Money
You may donate any amount you choose. Here are some specific amounts and how they help:
- Provide food, shelter, clothing, and case management to 20 people = $1,033.80
- Provide food, shelter, clothing, and case management to 7 people = $361.83

(Every day we serve nearly 1,000 meals and provide safe overnight shelter to hundreds from our community!) Your donation goes toward more than just a bed for our homeless neighbors to sleep in, and a warm meal for them to eat, but also includes case management, job search help, a clean shower, clothing, and the priceless potential of finding new life through an encounter with Christ.
Wondering where to donate? All donations to us can be directed toward general funds or a specific facility or ministry.

Gifts of Appreciated Assets
Did you know that a direct transfer of appreciated stock is a good way to make a gift to the Mission? There are very favorable tax rules for donors who want to donate long-term stock that has appreciated. You avoid paying capital gains taxes on the stock. You may also be able to take a charitable deduction for its present market value. Please see IRS Publication 526 for more tax information on Charitable Contributions. You can also speak with your broker about gifts of appreciated assets.
Giving Property That Has Depreciated in Value
Do you have stock or other property that has decreased in value? You will normally save more in taxes by selling it and giving the sale proceeds to the Mission. Then you may be able to claim a capital loss on your tax return. You can also deduct the cash proceeds you give as a charitable gift. This can result in tax deductions that amount to more than the current value of the asset. Tax deduction for gifts of depreciated property will be based on the current value. It is not based on what you originally paid for it.
How to Make a Stock Donation
Would you like to donate stock? Please contact Betsy Tewalt, Business Manager, at 208-343-2389 or by email at [email protected]. Please give her the following information:
- Your intent to make a gift to the Mission
- Your full name, address, and telephone number
- The estimated transfer date
- The name of your securities firm
- The name and contact information of your broker
- The intended purpose of your gift
Securities should be transferred to the following:

A/C Name: Boise Rescue Mission
A/C Number: 8B09990

Once your stock gift is processed, a tax receipt will be mailed out stating the name of the stock, the number of shares, and the date it was received by Boise Rescue Mission. Your tax advisor should determine the value of the gift.
Give From Your Donor Advised Fund
What is a donor-advised fund? A DAF is a type of giving program administered by a third party. It allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support the Mission easily. Its purpose is to manage charitable donations on behalf of an organization, family, or individual.
