SPOON is committed to building a world where all children get the nutrition and care they need to grow and thrive. Our work is made possible by the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations and program partners.
There are many ways you can help SPOON:
Dollars donated to SPOON go towards programming and operations, allowing us to reach more children more quickly with interventions that are not just affordable and effective, but life changing. Every gift makes a difference!
A monthly contribution is a great way to support SPOON. It allows you to spread your gift over a 12-month period and it provides us with year-round funding. No amount is too small to make an impact. Sign up here to have contributions automatically deducted from your credit card.
Making a gift in the form of securities or mutual funds lets you support SPOON’s work while realizing important benefits for yourself. Securities and mutual funds that have increased in value and have been held for more than one year can allow you to reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. To make a stock donation, please contact Emily Brod, Director of Finance & Administration, by or call (503) 954-2524.
Donate Airline Miles
Our technical teams frequently travel overseas. Your donated airline miles helps us put teams in the field while reserving our funds to reach more children through our programs. Please us if you have airline miles to donate.
SPOON is building a growing list of corporate sponsors who share our commitment to the wellbeing of underserved children. Please contact Luisa Adrianzen Guyer, Director of Development & Communications, by or 503-954-2524 to learn more about the marketing benefits available to our corporate partners.
Many employers offer matching gifts. Check with your benefits department to learn whether your company offers corporate matching. If they do, consider selecting SPOON as the beneficiary when you complete your organization’s matching gift form. We are currently receiving matching gifts from Nike, adidas, Google, Kaiser, University of Minnesota, Microsoft, Time Warner and John Hancock.
Organize a Fundraiser
SPOON relies heavily on donations from individuals in order to fulfill our mission to improve the nutrition of orphans and adoptees. Volunteers can organize fundraisers in their own communities, everything from an ambitious event like the “Eat Your Way Around the World” dinner to a simpler event like a garage sale or personal email appeal to family and friends. Whatever your ideas for fundraising, please contact Luisa Adrianzen Guyer, Director of Development and Communications by or (503) 954-2524.
