At Gesher, we believe in giving back to our community to help support our neighbors. Explore the many ways to get involved below.

Donations and Gift Options

There are many ways you can make a charitable gift to help support individuals in our community. You can make an unrestricted donation that allows Gesher to use the gift immediately to address pressing needs or give a deferred gift for use at a later date, which may provide additional tax and other benefits.

In addition to our direct donations, Gesher supports a number of gift giving options for you to consider when making your next gift.

Event Sponsorships

Gesher provides opportunities for local businesses, foundations, and individuals to sponsor events and support a range of causes. Events vary in size, demographics, and sponsorship levels. A few of the events we provide sponsorship opportunities for include Trade Secrets, the Lois Zussman Golf Classic, Frame of Mind, and more.

All events receive traditional media and social media presence, as well as recognition in Gesher publications, e-blasts, event invitations, and other collateral. Rights to event tickets and other opportunities vary based on event and giving level.
