“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”- AESOP​

There are so many ways you can help!

“For the past three months I've been making weekly visits to The Living Room (to sketch)... It's become one of the highlights of my week. The Living Room is the kind of program that breeds devoted volunteers who've been coming for years.”
— Susan, Volunteer

Volunteers are truly the backbone of our organization and are critical to the daily operation of the program.

“The crowning gift of being part of TLR is the gratitude, appreciation and compliments we receive from the participants who come in to eat. The Spirit is good in the neighborhood!”
— Maria, Volunteer

The Living Room is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that depends on grants, donations and fundraisers to sustain its program.

Donate by check
Make checks payable to “The Living Room” and send to:
The Living Room Center 328 South E Street Santa Rosa, CA 95404.

Donate Gift Cards
Gift cards are used to purchase food and other essential items used to operate The Living Room program. Gas gift cards and grocery store gift cards have been found to be the most useful types of gift cards. 

Donate by Credit Card
You may choose to make a one time or a recurring donation. Unfortunately, we DO NOT ACCEPT AMERICAN EXPRESS Cards at this time. Please feel free to call us at 707-978-4802 if you need assistance.

Pledges
Spread your annual gift throughout the year by pledging a specific amount each month. Pledges can be made by check or credit card.

Corporate Matching Gift Program
Help your company give to The Living Room while making your own personal tax deductible donation. Many large companies have Matching Gift Programs that will double your personal gift or give a sum (often up to $500) to a non-profit organization. Please check your company’s website or call your Human Resources Department to find out if they have this program. Even if you are not employed by a company that offers matching gift opportunities, you may know someone — a relative, neighbor of friend who does. Let them know that their personal and matching corporate gift will be well invested.

Legacy Gifts
Think beyond one’s lifespan and imagine how much good could be done by remembering The Living Room in your estate. A legacy gift or bequest can be made through annuities and other financial arrangements, or more simply through a will or living trust naming The Living Room as beneficiary of a bank account, life insurance policy, retirement plan, real estate holding, or other bequest. Gifts large and small are important.

Memorial Gift
Honor someone special by making a tribute gift. It is an excellent way to recognize someone dear to you who has passed, or to celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary or holiday. If someone has made a difference in your life, there’s no better way to honor them than to make a difference in the lives of people in need.
