FINANCIAL SUPPORT

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 

 

SPONSOR A LUNCH

For just $250, you can sponsor one day’s lunch for over 100 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.

FOOD DONATIONS

 

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.

 

DONATE STOCK

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.

LEGACY GIFTS

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.

Please consult your legal advisor to remember Soup Kitchen in Provincetown (SKIP) in your estate plan.
