BE A MEMBER OF DESC'S KEY CLUB: OUR MONTHLY GIVING PROGRAM
Key Club members help end homelessness year round by making automatic monthly donations through direct debit to their checking accounts or credit cards. If you give more than one gift annually or if you would like to make a more significant contribution but feel you can't afford to write a large check, small monthly donations through our Key Club may be just the thing for you.

Being a member of DESC's Key Club comes with distinctions and benefits:

  • invitations to VIP events
  • special early bird rates for the Annual Gala
  • special recognition in our Annual Reports
  • one bonus membership per year which you can share with a friend
To learn more and to sign up, contact Kathy Ulrich, Donor Stewardship officer here.

WORKPLACE GIVING
Workplace donations are a convenient way to help end homelessness all year long while enabling DESC to spend less time on fundraising and more time on helping move men and women permanently off of the street. Together, workplace donors provide nearly $100,000 to DESC annually.

Here's how you can do it:
United Way
DESC is proud to be a United Way of King County grantee, meaning we receive a portion of the overall funds raised by United Way. If your company participates in the United Way of King County Campaign, you can rest assured that part of your donation will come to DESC.You can also designate DESC as the direct recipient of your workplace giving.

King County: 5707
