Since our first home opened in 1999, Heart Havens has been empowering adults with developmental disabilities to live full and happy lives with as much independence as possible. We can't do this without your help. Though Heart Havens is primarily funded by Medicaid, we depend on donations to help cover what Medicaid doesn't pay for to ensure that the people we support are engaged as full and active members of their communities. Please make a gift today. Gifts may be made online via our secure giving pages, or you may mail a check to our Richmond office.

Annual Fund

Gifts to the Annual Fund go to where the need is the greatest among our homes and the people we support. This includes groceries for healthy, homemade meals, internet and phone plans, household supplies, vehicle expenses so our residents can participate in their community, home maintenance and repair, and incidental medical costs not covered by other insurance.

Endowment

Heart Havens established an Endowment in 2010 as an investment in sustaining our unique and urgently needed charitable mission. These funds are invested in perpetuity to generate earnings that allow Heart Havens to protect the people we support by maintaining the homes our donors have provided. A gift to the Endowment Fund is a gift for Heart Havens' future.

If your employer matches gifts, please contact us to let us know what you need from us to secure the match. 

Heart Havens is proud to be a participant in the CVC Federal Campaign. You can designate your gift to us by writing in our number, 75871. 

While Heart Havens is not a partner agency with the United Way, you may still designate your United Way gift to Heart Havens by writing in "Heart Havens, Richmond, VA."

Giving Hearts

By setting up a recurring gift, you can become a Giving Heart! Recurring gifts allow Heart Havens to plan income throughout the year, and they are quick and easy for the donor. Plus, they can be a great way to increase your donation without hurting your pocketbook! For example, if you would make a one-time gift of $100, a simple monthly gift of $10 would make your total annual gift $120. Giving Hearts receive special recognition in our Annual Report. To set up your recurring gift, use our secure giving page and select "monthly" in the box marked frequency , or use your online banking to set up a monthly donation. If you'd like to give via a monthly ACH transfer, please call our office.

Legacy Society

Donors who make provisions for a gift to Heart Havens through trusts, bequests and estate planning are recognized as members of the Legacy Society. Planned giving assists donors in developing the perfect balance between their personal financial goals and their charitable interests, while realizing significant tax benefits. Through planned giving, you can increase your current income or provide additional retirement income, while earning a current tax deduction and providing for a future gift to Heart Havens.
