I want to donate to someone’s Sleep Out. How do I find their page?
Search for their name in the Fundraiser Search box at the top of the page. When you get to their page, click the orange “Support Me” button to donate to their Sleep Out online.
To make a donation via check, print and complete the “Mail-In Donation Form” on the lower left-side of the person’s Sleep Out page. Include the form along with your donation and mail to the address listed at the bottom of the form (this address will vary depending on the Sleep Out event).
How can I double my Sleep Out donation?>
Did you know that many companies conduct their own charitable giving by "matching" the donations that are made by their employees? It’s true!
Enter the name of a company to see if your employer will match a donation:
Corporate matching donations are an easy way to double the value of every gift! If you have made a donation to Sleep Out, contact your company’s human resources department to ask if your company has a matching gift program; if so, they will likely give you a one-page form to fill out and mail to us. We’ll confirm receipt of your donation, send the form back to your company, and then the company will send Covenant House a check.
Let the Sleep Out participant you supported know when you submit a matching gift request to your company. They will work with us and their event lead to make sure it is returned promptly and added to their page.
How do I get a receipt for my online donation?
After you complete your donation, you will receive an email confirmation with a PDF gift form attached. This email is your official gift receipt, and you may print it and save it for your records. If you have not received this form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the participant and/or event you supported and we will resend.
How do I donate by mail?
To make a cash or check donation to a Sleep Out participant, visit their personal fundraising page online and click the blue “Mail-In Donation Form” button. A form will download with the participant’s information pre-populated. Print this, fill it out with your donation information, and mail it - along with your donation - to the address listed at the bottom of the form.
