How can I help?
There are several ways you can help people in your neighborhood maximize their independence and achieve success:

Cash donations
RHD accepts donations for individual programs, or for the organization as a whole to use wherever the need is greatest. Donate online with your credit card through a secure server, or mail a check or other form of donation to:

Resources for Human Development
P.O. Box 12280
Philadelphia, Pa. 19144

Does your employer match your charitable gift? If so, please enclose the matching gift form with your donation.

Planned giving
The most familiar type of planned gift is a general bequest, leaving a portion of your assets to RHD. Even a modest bequest will have a large impact.

Other types of planned gifts include charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, and revocable living trusts. An often-overlooked gift, easy to give, is all or part of a life insurance policy no longer needed for its original purpose. By making RHD the owner of the policy, the premiums you pay are tax deductible. To learn more about tax benefits that assist you in meeting your personal financial and estate planning goals, contact RHD Director of Development Rita Brouwer-Ancher at

Stock Transfer
The donation of common stock, bonds and mutual funds can be made to RHD; for details please contact RHD Director of Development Rita Brouwer-Ancher at

Donate through the United Way’s Donor Choice
If you wish to support your workplace’s United Way campaign, please designate RHD to receive your payroll deduction. RHD’s Donor Choice number is 00838.
