Why Donate Through Avenues for Hope?
A campaign match from the Avenues for Hope host, The Home Partnership Foundation, is available for SEICAA through Avenues for Hope. The Home Partnership Foundation provides a $1:$1 match for online gifts up to $2,500 (for example, a $25.00 donation turns into a $50.00 donation). Offline donations or donations made through other platforms cannot be matched. Additionally, SEICAA is eligible for “Challenge Prizes,” which are bonus funds awarded to participating organizations for the number of donations they receive and when they receive them.
SEICAA’s Avenues for Hope Campaign
Funds received from our Avenues for Hope campaign benefit our Veterans Services, a program overseen by SEICAA’s Affordable Housing division. Our Veteran Services are available to military veterans facing homelessness. Participants work with our Affordable Housing team to overcome poverty barriers and help them attain self-sufficiency. SEICAA’s Veterans Services is recognized nationally as a Community Service Excellence Award recipient, earned for its dedication to veterans and their needs. Additionally, our Veterans Services is home to the Freedom LZ emergency shelter, Idaho’s only emergency shelter for veterans.
This year, funds received will help our Affordable Housing team continue to purchase items for welcome kits (linens, pillows, towels, etc.), shop for groceries, and provide transportation for veterans who enter the shelter. Additionally, we hope to use funds to cover medication, dental, and vision costs for uninsured veterans until our team has helped them enroll for benefits.
