Matching Gifts You may have the opportunity to double the value of your gifts through your employer's matching gift program. Check with your employer to see if such a program exists.

Life Insurance The gift of life insurance is a practical and affordable way to partner with the Mission. Typically, you apply for a permanent life insurance policy on your own life and name the Rescue Mission both owner and beneficiary of the policy. Since the Mission is the owner, your annual gift of the premium payment is tax-deductible. If you need to discontinue contributions, any accumulated policy values can still provide a generous gift. Consult your financial advisor, attorney or tax professional for details.

Wills and Bequests You can leave a legacy for the needy that lasts far beyond your lifetime when you include the Mission in your estate planning. Without a will, your estate may be distributed by probate court without your input or desire. Your will allows you to make those important decisions to care for people you love and charities that share your values. Options range from giving a specific bequest, a percentage of your estate, and/or the remainder and residue of your estate. Consult your financial advisor, attorney or tax professional for details.

Stock and Real Estate Giving appreciated stock, mutual fund shares, bonds and other securities are cost-effective ways to help. IRS regulations allow you to deduct the fully appreciated value of securities, thus avoiding capital gains taxes. Consult your financial advisor, attorney or tax professional for details. Again, appreciated real estate donated to the Mission bypasses capital gains tax while claiming its full market value as a charitable deduction. Your gift of real estate can affect good works beyond your lifetime and into eternity.

Gifts In-Kind We depend on the generous contributions that help assist our residents and community. Non-perishable and perishable food, personal hygiene, double sheet sets, pillow cases, dressers and laundry soap are needed daily and can be dropped off at 413 East Dominick Street Monday thru Friday 10:00 – 6:00. Clothing and other items can be dropped off at 280 East Dominick Street Monday thru Wednesday 10:00 - 3:00 or placed in our drop box at the rear of the building. Please call 337-2516 for additional information.


I came to the shelter scared and alone. The people here really care about me! I never knew that people who didn't even know me could care about me before I did...

When I first came to the Rome Rescue Mission, I was scared because my mom and I had no place to live. It wasn’t long before I realized that I was in a great place. Today, I feel safe for the first time...
