Make A Donation

You can shape a stronger, healthier Coatesville community.

In the Greater Coatesville area, with some of Chester County’s poorest neighborhoods, our children, seniors, adults and youth lack the quality healthcare, mental health, behavioral health and social support services that they need.

Your single act of generosity will make a real difference. Your donations help with supporting general operating expenses, building a stronger nonprofit sector, and our implementing strategic initiatives that help with emergent and long term community challenges. Your donation supports these unprecedented times impacting our most disenfranchised children, families and other vulnerable groups.

How Your Donations Are Used

Recurring Gifts allow you to become an ongoing advocate by making automatic monthly donations to provide the resources we need to keep striving for a better Coatesville. No gift is too small!

  • Planned Giving opportunities to create a legacy of health and the promise of a strong and vibrant future for our neighbors in the greater Coatesville Area. A legacy that you and your loved ones can feel good about.
    • Outright Gift of an Asset
      If you wish to make a gift to support The Alliance for Health Equity this year but are concerned about preserving your cash resources, consider a gift of an appreciated asset. A gift of securities, business interests or real estate can provide you with significant income and capital gains tax savings, often exceeding the benefits of a cash gift.
    • IRA Charitable Rollover
      Congress made permanent the law that allows people age 70½ or older who own an IRA to make cash gifts directly from their IRA to charity. For many people, this is the best tax-wise way to give. An IRA rollover gift will not be included in your taxable income and will qualify for your required minimum distribution.For more information on becoming a member of our legacy society or to discuss a planned gift, contact us at 610-380-9080 or via email.
