Honorary Gift Cards

child-smiling-over-shoulderHere's a way to give to your favorite non-profit – us – while also honoring family, friends, business associates and employees.

With a minimum donation of $10, you will receive a one-of-a-kind Parenting Now! notecard, ready for your message. It's easy, environmentally friendly (no need to give more 'stuff') and supports a good cause. Plus, it's an easy solution to those gift-giving challenges.

We suggest the following wording inside the card, "A gift has been made in your honor to Parenting Now!" Use the card to announce your donation or just to say hi.

Call us at 541-484-5316 and we'll personalize honorary gift cards for everyone on your list! You can also come in to Parenting Now, formerly Birth To Three, at 86 Centennial Loop in Eugene (off MLK Boulevard) and pick up blank cards for your own unique messages.


Brick Donation

By writing a message, you can commemorate the memory of a loved one, celebrate the birth of a child, or acknowledge someone special. Give us the language that should be engraved on a plaque, and Parenting Now! will have it installed as a permanent tribute near our front doors. As families come and go through Parenting Now!'s front doors, they'll see your message.

Sign up to create a lasting gift that also helps to fund the Parenting Now! programs.


Group or Business Donation

It's great to work with businesses and organizations that want to raise funds for us. Options for activities include:

An event where we receive a percentage of sales or funds raised

Examples include the Steel Pail fundraiser, an auction, a contest, a dessert bar, etc. Local Etsy artists designated us as the recipient of a percentage of their sales. For several years, the photographers of the Lane County Children's Photo Contest have given us part of their sitting fees. We'll help you think of projects or make the most of yours!

A series of activities within a set time period, all of which raise funds for Parenting Now!

Examples include corporate challenges, a month- or year-long focus on us, etc. CBT Nugget created a NuggetLOVE program that designated a month for activities and volunteerism that supported Parenting Now!

We'd love to work with your group. Please contact the development team at Parenting Now!
