Tax-deductible contributions in any amount are always appreciated and will be publicly noted both in our newsletter and website. Also, we will acknowledge donations, offered on behalf of someone else, with a note sent to the bereaved family.

Memorial Donations

Friends and family members who would like to contribute in memory of a child are welcome to contribute to HAND. Parents may specify HAND as the recipient of memorial contributions for their child.

These contributions are acknowledged in our newsletter and to the parents as a tribute to their child. HAND uses these contributions to provide much-needed services to parents in our service areas. Please indicate the parents’ and the child’s name when sending in a memorial contribution.

For larger contributions and endowments in memory of a child, please contact treasurer@handonline.org for more information and to discuss the specifics of the donation you are considering.

Donations should be mailed to:

Helping After Neonatal Death
P.O. Box 341
Los Gatos, CA 95031

On behalf of HAND’s clients and volunteers, we thank you for your support.

Company Matching

Many companies provide matching gifts for employees to support their chosen nonprofit organization. While each company’s requirements differ, HAND often qualifies. HAND is a California Nonprofit Corporation governed under the Federal Tax Code as a 501(c)3 organization for Health and Human Services.

Companies may match cash donations and donations of company stock. At this time, HAND is unable to accept any donations of equipment.

Amazon & AmazonSmile

Through the support of Amazon, HAND receives a portion of the profits made through your purchases of books, music and more, at no additional cost to you. Our links to Amazon provide more detailed bibliographic information and on-line reviews for our Recommended Books.

AmazonSmile is operated by Amazon, and lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the eligible charitable organization of your choice. You can learn more about this AmazonSmile program here.

On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. After having selected “Helping After Neonatal Death” as your charity, every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation to HAND.

Even if you don’t use AmazonSmile, you can still shop on Amazon.com and support HAND in the process. Simply go to Amazon by clicking here.

United Way

Many companies direct their employee charitable giving programs through United Way. United Way is an attractive mechanism for many people to contribute on a regular basis through payroll deductions or direct contributions.

HAND is currently not a United Way agency, which means that any company matching funds go to United Way’s general fund and not to HAND. However, people wishing to donate to HAND through United Way are able to do so by selecting HAND as their designated agency. Please make sure to search for “Helping After Neonatal Death.”
