Make a Donation

What we Do

We work to ensure All Children Healthy,
All Families Thriving, All Communities Strong!

Donations are key to helping us provide support programs, such as Friends of the Children and A Child’s Place, and also to enhance the lives of the other children and families we serve. Donations can be financial or in-kind donations of new toys, hygiene or clothing items.

Founded in 1886 as an orphanage, Thompson now is a human services leader transforming lives through early childhood, family stability, mental health,  and residential treatment services. As a solutions-driven, trauma-informed organization – your investment will enable us to rewrite the narratives for the most vulnerable in our community. Please donate now to help us make an impact.

By designating a bequest to Thompson in your will you can make a long-term impact for children in need. If you have already named Thompson in your will or estate, please let us know so we can ensure that your gift is used according to your wishes. Requests for anonymity will be held in strict confidence. For more information on making a legacy gift, please contact Megan Mitcham, Individual Giving Director at

Give From Your IRA

If you’re, 70.5 or older, giving from your IRA can benefit your finances while making an immediate impact on your community. IRA charitable donations can be all or a portion of your IRA, up to $100,000 annually.

PLEASE NOTE – The transfer must be made directly from the IRA to Thompson through your IRA administrator, or you may write a check payable to Thompson  from your IRA checkbook.

When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to Thompson, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value-and you incur no capital gains tax. To make a donation of stock or security, please contact Megan Mitcham, Individual Giving Director.

If you already have a donor-advised fund, you can recommend a gift to Thompson by contacting your fund representative. Our tax ID number is 56-0547460.

With Your Help

Supporting Foster Children

We set lofty goals for the new fiscal year that began July 1st and need your help to achieve them. Along with a national workforce shortage, there continues to be an increased and ongoing need for Thompson services.

Our major goal this year is to continue to stand in the breach for those that need us and impact more children and families. We understand that the work will be difficult and challenging but believe it can be accomplished with your advocacy and support.

I look forward to showing you the difference you made in the months to come as we work together to change lives.

All Children Healthy, All Families Thriving, All Communities Strong!
