Ways To Support

Your generosity means the world to children, adults and families in need of services. Thank you!

Your Gift Will Make a Difference!

At this special time of year, we would like to invite you to consider making a gift to Advocates’ Annual Appeal. Your support and commitment to the vital services offered by Advocates is important in advancing the mission of our organization.

Our goal this year is to raise $30,000. Thanks to the John Ben Snow Foundation, Advocates will receive a $10,000 Challenge Grant if we can raise $10,000 by December 15th. We truly appreciate the John Ben Snow Foundation for having confidence in our ability to raise funds to support children and adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities through our Annual Appeal.

Please consider supporting Advocates with a gift. Whatever you choose to contribute, you can be assured that your gift will make a profound impact for people disabilities.

To make a gift, please click on the button below. Or, if you would like to pay by check, please mail your gift to Advocates Incorporated, Annual Appeal, 290 Elwood Davis Road, Suite 101, Liverpool, NY 13088.

On behalf of Advocates Incorporated, we extend our sincerest and warmest wishes to you and your family this holiday season.

Tribute Gifts

A tribute gift is a gift to honor or remember someone. You can make a tribute gift for a special occasion, like a birthday, graduation, anniversary or wedding. You can also make a tribute gift in memory of someone who has died.  If you would like to make a tribute gift and would like us to notify someone that you made a gift in their honor or in memory of a loved one, please provide us with the details, and we will be more than happy to send a card to tell them of your gift to Advocates.

Workplace Giving Campaign

Workplace giving is an easy and efficient way to make tax-deductible donations to Advocates.  Donations are taken directly out of your paycheck. Designate Advocates for your next workplace giving campaign! Wills, Bequests, Retirement Plans and Life Insurance: these are the most popular types of planned gift programs.  Check with your company’s Human Resources Department.

United Way

United Way provides a valuable philanthropic service to hundreds of health and human service organizations. Through their donor designation program, they collect, process and transfer donations on behalf of hundreds of Central New York nonprofit organizations.  Please designate Advocates, Inc. when making your gift to the United Way.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are a type of corporate giving program that essentially doubles an employee’s initial donation to an eligible nonprofit organization.  This is a great way to make an impactful contribution to Advocates.  To find out if your company will match gifts, please check with your HR Department.


An excellent way for you to support Advocates’ mission is to leave a bequest in your will, living trust or with a codicil. 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 you are able to leave a lasting legacy.  There are a number of ways you can make a bequest to our agency through a Specific Bequest, Percentage Bequest, Residual Bequest, or a Contingent Bequest.  Please consult with your financial advisor.

Please reach out to Cheri Haskins, Director of Development and Communications, with any questions: development@advocatesincorporated.org or call (315) 469-9931
