Daniel Kids

Ways to Give

Daniel helps nearly 3,500 local abused, abandoned and neglected children, as well as at-risk families everyday.

The critical therapeutic and supportive care we offer is at low or no cost to our clients. Yet, the demand for our services continues to grow despite yearly decreases in government funding.

By helping local kids in crisis through intervention or prevention, Daniel helps strengthen the community at large. You can too. It’s through the generous support of caring individuals, companies, and foundations that we can continue to provide the quality care needed to lift kids from crisis and guide them down the path to safety and recovery. 

Types of Donations

Through charitable donations of generous individuals just like you, Daniel is able to continue to provide a high level of care for our kids in crisis, plan for the future and expand our mission to help as many children and families as possible.

Please explore the following options with your financial advisor to choose the one that’s best for you, then contact us at donate@danielkids.org or 904-296-1055 to take the next step.

Vehicle Donation 

We appreciate your car donation. Daniel services youth who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless through the Project Prepare program. Your donated car can provide a lifeline for these youth to get to and from work and school. Due to limited resources we are only able to accept cars that are currently running at this time.

Appreciated Securities

If you have highly appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other securities you’ve held over one year, consider donating them to Daniel. You’ll receive a current year tax deduction for the full market value of the securities without incurring any capital gains on the appreciation. Daniel can sell the securities and put the proceeds to work to help our kids.

Donating real estate to Daniel is a great way to be part of the organization’s future growth plans and make your mark in the community at large. We can use the land to expand in the future or sell the land to fund other goals. Check with your financial advisor and Daniel leadership to review your options.
