Gifts of cash are an excellent way to provide The Salvation Army with the immediate funds necessary to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the people we serve. These donations include checks, money orders, and credit card donations, which can be given through our secured online donation site, through the mail, or even by phone.


Making Your Donation to The Salvation Army


While making a secured online donation, your gift can be designated for the benefit of a specific program or service, or for The Salvation Army's general use and purposes in your area. You can specify where you want your money to go and how you would like it used at the time of your donation. Additionally, through our online form you can also make a gift in memory of someone, in honor of someone or even set up an ongoing gift.

Benefits of Making a Donation

By making a cash donation to The Salvation Army, you are able to claim a charitable deduction of up to 50% of your adjusted gross income in the year you make the gift. If you cannot utilize the entire deduction in that year, deductions may be carried over for an additional five years.

If you live in New York and do not itemize deductions, you may take a deduction on your New York income tax return of 50% of the amount of your total charitable contributions exceeding $500.
