End of Year Giving
It only takes a second to create change. Your contribution, no matter the size, goes a long way to making a difference in the lives of critically ill children through Believe In Tomorrow’s programs. Of each dollar donated, 93 cents goes back to our families, helping them in a time they need it most. Please keep Believe In Tomorrow families in mind when making your 100% tax-deductible end of year donation this year.
A tax deductible donation, in any amount, will go a long way to making sure our biggest needs are met for families facing a child's critical illness. Your donation may be designated as a gift in honor or in memory of a friend or loved one, and can also be designated toward a specific Believe In Tomorrow program area.

Believe In Tomorrow runs the only

Corporate sponsorships are an essential element in helping Believe In Tomorrow accomplish its mission. Whether you’re a small local company or a large national corporation, there are many ways to join our team and make a grassroots difference in the lives of the children and families we serve.
Sponsorship opportunities include some or all of the following four elements:
- Direct Hospital and Respite House Contributions maintain and expand our pediatric housing mission.
- In-Kind Contributions help us to build, maintain and furnish our hospital and respite housing services.
- Marketing and Advertising Contributions aide in communicating our unique mission to communities and audiences throughout the country.
- Event Sponsorships provide support during friend and fund raising special events. We are currently securing sponsorships for our 30th Anniversary Benefit and Auction, which will be held on October 27, 2012 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD.

The Believe In Tomorrow House at
Pinnacle Falls is a generous donation
from the Amick Family.
Believe In Tomorrow Hospital and Respite Houses are built, renovated and maintained by mobilizing donated construction materials and labor. We are looking for corporate partners in the building trade and home improvement arena to help us keep our facilities looking pristine, add any enhancements to our current properties and help with general maintenance and repairs. We are always in need of new appliances, fixtures, flooring, carpeting and other items and materials that keep our properties looking brand new for our families. Believe In Tomorrow is also actively looking for donations of resort properties that can be utilized in our respite housing program.
Through the Independent Charities of America, those looking for a free, convenient service to convert an extra car, truck, or RV into a tax deductible donation can give a vehicle knowing the money will go to benefit Believe In Tomorrow programs.
