Make a Donation
Make a tax-deductible financial contribution
A perfect opportunity for a single individual or a major corporation. Whether you write your check for $100 or $100,000, all financial contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Many employers offer to match your charitable donations dollar-for-dollar, so don’t forget to ask whether your employer will match your donations. You have a few options on how you want your contribution applied. Please view our donation form. If you choose to donate via PayPal, there is a 'Write a note' section where you can indicate your contribution choice. How should you give? You can securely give through PayPal using the yellow button below. Or, you can mail a check to us the old-fashioned way: just download our donation form.
Donate Goods or Services
Perfect for local businesses. If you offer a professional service, chances are you can help us. Are you a master gardener or a landscape artist? Maybe you have a carpet cleaning business. Perhaps you’re a marketing firm looking to “adopt” a local charity. Take a look at our Wish List.
Donate Goods or Services for an Event
Perfect for local businesses. Our fundraising events are our bread and butter, and anything your company can donate will help to deflect our overhead costs. We accept donations of anything you can think of, including but certainly not limited to flowers, food, entertainment, public relations services, and printing, just to name a few.
Renovate or name a room at Bright Side Manor
Perfect for larger corporations, banks, or foundations. With 65 residents and three dozen staff members, you can imagine that our building takes a beating. There is always an opportunity to renovate or make improvements around our home, at various budget levels. Check with us to see what might need fixing, and we’ll find a way to put your group to work.
Name an area in our new building
With 61 apartments, lobby, dining room, living room and community garden, the Senior Apartment Building at 60 Bergen Avenue provides many opportunities to make a significant contribution while creating a lasting tribute to an individual or institution.
Sponsor a Resident
Perfect for larger corporations, banks, or foundations. Many older adults have incomes that are too high to qualify for Medicaid but too low to pay for assisted living. Very often, Bright Side Manor will admit these residents despite their inability to pay. You can sponsor one of these residents, permanently or for just one month.
Honor a loved one or remember someone
Perfect for individuals or families. Purchase a teak bench, a planter, a chair, or a brick for the yard at Bright Side Manor or the Bergen Avenue Senior Apartments, and we’ll have it engraved expressly for you or your loved one with your personal message. Peek at our brick garden for inspiration on your next visit to Bright Side.
Get your group involved
Ask your employer, rotary club, community group, church group, veterans' club, or women's group to host a party or a special event for our residents, or a volunteer day.
An ideal way to lend your support while getting to know us better and mingling with other supporters. You never know who you might meet at our fundraisers. Please check our Upcoming Events calendar.
