Donate Now

Annual Appeal

The Avidd Community Services of NJ Annual Appeal takes place in the fall of every year, but of course unsolicited donations are accepted at any time. We hope you will consider a donation in support of the programs and services we provide to individuals and families with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The funds we receive from the state never completely support all the services we offer, so we rely on the support of the community to make up the difference. All donations are tax-deductible.

Credit Card Gifts

Credit Card Gifts may also be made over the phone by calling the Development Office at (973) 664-1770 x16.

Matching Gifts

Please consult with the human resource department of your company to inquire if your donation qualifies for their Matching Gift Program. These programs have many times doubled the amount of your donation. Call us at 973-664-1770 and we can help you arrange for your donation to go that much further.


Appreciated securities can provide an attractive means of giving. Through this type of gift, an individual can receive a charitable income tax deduction and avoid paying tax on the “capital gains” that would be due if the stocks were sold. A gift of securities may be made by transferring the stock to Avidd Community Services. It should not be sold to a broker; it must be transferred, which is a simple process.  Contact the Development Office at (973) 664-1770 x16 for further information.

Memorial Donations

Avidd Community Services of NJ provides memorial cards to honor the memory of a loved one with a donation to support our programs.

Vehicle Donations

We accept most cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RV’s, motorcycles, off road vehicles, heavy equipment and other motorized vehicles.  Vehicles do not need to be running.  Contact (855) 500-RIDE or visit https://careasy.org/nonprofit/special-homes-of-nj to arrange for pickup.

Tax Implications

Donors should consult with tax advisors concerning the applicable federal and state tax law. Avidd Community Services of NJ is a 501(c)3 tax exempt non profit charitable organization.
