Ways to Give

You can make an impact.

Many giving options are available to fit your needs and interests. Whether through a one-time gift, recurring or multi-year gift to the One World Fund, each contribution makes a difference.  Join one of our special events or make a planned gift. Start a fundraiser through social media or through our online resources. Connect with your employer to learn about leveraging a matching gift! We accept gifts into our unrestricted One World Fund, allowing for donor dollars to support the organization’s greatest need.

What is the One World Fund?

Bancroft’s Annual Fund is vital to bridging the gap between public funding for services and the true cost of care for the people we support. We rely on our friends and families to partner with us to help advance Bancroft’s mission and vision. Unrestricted funds allow us to allocate resources where they are needed most during the current year. Your gifts impact the lives of people who need us, empowering each individual to live life to their fullest potential.

Become a One World Fund Champion​

The One World Fund Champions are a community of individuals who pledge to make a recurring gift to support Bancroft. They provide a consistent and reliable source of funding and enable Bancroft to plan ahead for the future. No gift is too small – whether you commit to $15, $30 or even $50 per month, the impact of your recurring donation will help the individuals in our care to reach their goals.

Family Advisory Board

The Family Advisory Board (FAB) engages highly committed family members of those in Bancroft’s care who are passionate about ensuring the organization’s success and future sustainability. Members of the FAB assist with various fundraising initiatives and make an annual minimum contribution of $5,000 to Bancroft’s One World Fund.

Through bi-annual meetings, members have the opportunity to interact with Bancroft leadership and receive updates on the organization’s latest strategic initiatives, advocacy, fundraising, programs, services and events, as well as access to presentations from Bancroft thought leaders. Being a member of the FAB comes with a call to serve in many ways – as an ambassador, advocate, advisor, Bancroft champion and more.

“The families of the individuals we serve, support and treat, play a critical role in the progress and quality of life of their child or loved one through contributions of their time, programmatic ideas and philanthropic gifts,” said Toni Pergolin, Bancroft President and CEO.
