    Donate in memory

    Donating in memory of a loved is hopeful way to celebrate the life of a loved one and continue their legacy. You can make a donation to North Side in their memory, or by asking for donations to be made as an alternative to cards and flowers at a funeral or memorial service. The money you donate will go towards paying for the basic needs of food, clothing and shelter, or other supportive services such as health care and employment services for our clients.

    NSHSS is a 501(c)3 registered not-for-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. North Side acknowledges all gifts received by an in-kind donation form or letter that may be used as your donation receipt.
