Donate by Credit or PayPal
The Soup Kitchen In Provincetown (SKIP) depends primarily on contributions from individuals and businesses to provide its nutritious meals and social community. It is not affiliated with any religious or political organization and receives less than 10 percent of its income from government and other grants.
Donations of any amount are accepted and each gift is acknowledged. A gift may be given to commemorate an occasion or in a person’s memory, and SKIP can send a notification. You can use Paypal or donate by mail. Please indicate how your donation is to be listed and both your address and honoree’s address if notification is required
CO-SPONSOR A LUNCH
For just $250, you can co-sponsor one day’s lunch for over 150 people! You can use Paypal or donate by mail. Please indicate how your donation is to be listed and both your address and honoree’s address if notification is required. Your name, organization, or someone you choose to honor will appear as the sponsor on our menu board for the day.
Each weekday, SKIP volunteers prepare over 125 meals including seconds and “to-go” meals using generous donations of food from restaurants, businesses and individuals, as well as the Greater Boston Food Bank. Food donations are accepted in person Monday through Friday at 20 Shank Painter Road from November to April between 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm or by appointment.
"IN HONOR OF" GIFTS
In honor of your wedding, birthday, or other special occasion, consider designating SKIP as your charity of choice in lieu of gifts. You can use Paypal or donate by mail. Please indicate how your donation is to be listed and both your address and honoree’s address if notification is required. Your guests can donate online here, or by sending a check to SKIP.
Donating stocks is another way you can help SKIP! Giving appreciated stock is a much more effective donation method in terms of tax savings. With a charitable gift of appreciated securities held long-term, the donation you make and the deduction you get are greater than they would be if you were to sell the shares and donate the cash proceeds instead. That is because when you donate shares, you avoid paying the capital gains tax.
Our stock donations are made through our account with Fidelity. To learn more about donating stock to SKIP please contact the SKIP Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-487-8331.
Donating by way of a trust, will, or bequest, is another way to support SKIP. A bequest is a gift made to charity in your will or trust. One significant benefit of making a gift by bequest is that it allows you to continue to use the property you will leave to charity during your life. Another benefit is that by making a bequest you are able to leave a lasting legacy.
You can choose to leave a specific dollar amount, designate that a percentage of your estate be given through your will or living trust, or give only the remainder, or residue, of your estate –that which remains after bequests to loved ones have been made. The following is a suggested form for such a bequest:
“I give and bequeath to the Soup Kitchen In Provincetown, a not-for-profit corporation, with principal offices presently located at 20 Shank Painter Road, Provincetown, MA 02657
the sum of $ , to be used for the accomplishment of its general purposes (or for a specific purpose, as indicated).”
Please consult your legal advisor to remember the Soup Kitchen in Provincetown (SKIP) in your estate plan.
