Childhaven In-Kind Donation Policy
Childhaven solicits and accepts gifts that are consistent with our mission, support our core programs, and help the families we serve. All forms of gifts and donated properties are subject for review and possible refusal.
Amazon wish list
We encourage interested donors to visit Childhaven’s Amazon wish list. The list includes items our children, families, classrooms and programs need today.
What we always accept
- Diapers, wipes & pull-ups. We spend over $12,000 on diapers for our classrooms per year. Every donated box helps! Any brand of diaper is accepted and we need all sizes.
- Sensory toys & craft materials (See this list!). Childhaven uses these sensory and educational items throughout all of its programs. These items foster cognitive development for zero to five-year-olds and help them prepare for kindergarten.
- Grocery and gas gift cards. To best support the children in its care, Childhaven offers multiple engagement opportunities for caregivers, and provides several forms of support to families. Your donated gift cards can help families with basic needs like gas or groceries.
- Annual Auction Donations. Each year, Childhaven puts on an auction to benefit our organization. There are live and silent components to the auction. We auction donated items such as restaurant gift cards, wine, travel (timeshares/hotel points/airline tickets), themed baskets (wine, movie night, gardening, tech, etc.) and sports tickets. All items must be new and unused. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an auction donation.
