Ways to Give
Give A One Time Gift
In Flight depends on the generosity of the community to break the barriers of restricted funding and reach our full potential to advance our mission to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to reach for their hopes and dreams and support a meaningful quality of life. Your gift can make an impact in a way you are passionate about including:
- Employment skill training equipment
- Employment retention needs for people with I/DD who are employed
- Therapeutic skill training
- Residential maintenance and upgrades
- Health & nutrition education
- Inclusion & community integration through recreation
- Clinical/behavioral support & mental health
- Geographical program expansion
- The workforce crisis
One-time gifts take many shapes from monetary donations to in-kind donations including:
Tribute/Memorial Gifts- Pay tribute to the memory of a passed loved one or celebrate a special occasion by making a gift that will leave an impact. Donations can be made to In Flight, Inc. in lieu of flowers or a donation made in your loved ones' name as a gift. If instructed to, we will notify families and honorees of contributions made in their name. All tribute gifts are mentioned in In Flight's monthly newsletter.
Event Sponsorship- In Flight hosts signature fundraising events throughout the year. Event sponsorships help us offset the event costs, so the proceeds come directly back to In Flight programs and strengthen the impact on those we support. Event sponsorships offer recognition opportunities before, during, and after the event.
In-Kind Gifts- In-kind gifts are a donation of goods or services rather than a monetary contribution. Make a donation from our wishlist, donate toward a project, or make a donation you think would help advance In Flight's mission.
Matching Gifts- Share your passion and philanthropic efforts with your employer to increase the impact of your gift by having them match the funds you raise.
Leave A Legacy
Give a gift that will impact In Flight's mission for generations to come as part of your estate planning with a bequest.

Planned giving gives a gift in way of estate preservation or tax incentives that can be given now or in the future. Talk with your accountant or attorney to assist you with your planning.
