Ways to Give

Annual Events

Each year we host several annual events including the Murder Mystery Dinner and Theme Basket Raffle, Golf Tournament & Niagara Trail Wine Tour and the SASi Celebration. The success of each event depends on volunteer, staff, corporate, friends and family support. These events raise much needed community dollars and promote awareness of our mission.

Special Appeals

Throughout the year, SASi sponsors special appeals that provide opportunities for business, employees, friends and families to support the Foundation. Volunteers who provide support to make these appeals successful serve as a great source of inspiration as we continue to meet the challenges that lie ahead.

Planned Giving

Another important way to support SASi's future is through planned giving. Planned gifts are tax-deductible contributions that do not significantly affect current finances and after-tax income. There is no greater act of generosity than supporting a non-profit organization through gifts of securities, life insurance or in your estate plans. You and your loved ones can receive considerable tax benefits, while helping to secure SASi's financial future. To learn more about the many ways in which you can leave your legacy to SASi contact your personal legal or financial advisor or call the SASi Foundation at (716)805-1555.

Gifts of Caring

Often friends and family of SASi wish to remember someone through a memorial gift or acknowledge a special event such as a birthday or anniversary. Throughout the year, we accept gifts of caring and honor requests in a sincere, dignified manner.

In Kind

Gifts of new or gently used products and merchandise are also gratefully accepted. Please call the Foundation at (716)805-1555 to discuss any items(s) you wish to donate.

Robyn Zimmer, mother of a child with developmental differences, designed this symbol to show support, acceptance and kindness no matter what differences we may have and to raise much needed funds for local charities.
