Other Ways to Give

There are many ways to support the Mission that have a lasting impact on homelessness.

Honor a loved one, give stocks, engage an employer match, and more!

You can give in many ways to help homeless people in the Hampton Roads community through The Union Mission. You can give a gift in memory or honor of a family member or friend, have your gift matched by your company, or even give through your federal workplace.

However you support us, you are building a legacy of hope for future generations. Thank you for giving!

Memorial and honorarial gifts

Remember a loved one or celebrate a special milestone or friendship by helping others in need at The Union Mission. It’s easy to give a memorial or honorarial gift online today.

A Memorial Gift in the name of a loved one is a caring remembrance that also provides help for those in need. The family of the deceased will receive a lovely card acknowledging your caring gesture of sympathy.

An Honorarial Gift is a wonderful tribute for a friend or relative or commemorates a joyous event such as a graduation, wedding, promotion, or retirement. The honoree will learn of your thoughtful generosity to help those less fortunate through a beautiful card.

For more information about memorial or honorary gifts, call our Donor Relations Department at (757) 627-8686, x 506.

Donate Retirement Assets or Stocks

If you are of the age where you must take a required minimum distribution from your IRA or retirement plan, but you don’t need these funds to live, you can ask your institution or financial advisor to make a tax-free charitable rollover gift directly to The Union Mission.

Many donors bless The Union Mission with a donation of appreciated stock. Because of tax benefits, these can result in a gift even more generous than cash. To donate a stock gift, please coordinate your plans with our Finance Department at (757) 627-8686, x 552.

Combined Federal Campaign



Federal civilian employees, postal workers, and military personnel can support The Union Mission through the annual Combined Federal Campaign. The CFC is designed to support nonprofit organizations that provide health and human service benefits in local communities. Just write in The Union Mission as your charity using our CFC number: #61126.

Workplace Matching Gifts

If your employer has a matching gift program, we’re twice blessed by your gift! Every $1 you give will double through their match, meaning twice the meals, shelter, and hope for our neediest neighbors.

How does it work? If you donate $50 your employer will donate a matching gift doubling the gift to $100. Check with your employer to see if they participate, or refer to this list of well-known Matching Gift Companies.
