Individual Giving

Individual giving is vitally important to Skid Row Housing Trust’s continued work. Not only does individual giving demonstrate the community’s support of our work, but also it provides unrestricted revenue that we can use to flexibly respond to the needs of our residents. Whether through a one-time or recurring gift, a corporate matching program, or long-term planned gift, Skid Row Housing Trust is eager to work with individuals who want to invest in evidence-based solutions to homelessness.

Contributing Public Securities Held Electronically

Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds because it can have a large impact on our mission while maximizing potential tax benefits by avoiding paying tax on capital gains.

Snow, a resident of a Trust building in Skid Row, holds a photo of her traveling before she got cancer.

“After I got cancer, I lost my job…I slept on steps, and in the back of someone’s car…When I moved in here I though, I’m in heaven. Out there is hell, here I’m in heaven. I have a bed to sleep on now. I am so thankful.” ~Snow

And we are so thankful to have Snow as a wonderful resident and thankful for donors who help people like Snow stay stably housed with support services.
