There are a number of ways to donate to Thelma’s Place to help us continue offering quality programming to people living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. We offer respite to caregivers whether they have the ability to pay or not because we know it is a very difficult job that they have to care for someone with memory loss. The generous contributions of our donors make it possible to offer quality programs that dramatically improve the quality of many lives.
We appreciate our donors and their donations immensely, without them, Thelma’s Place is not possible. We have a variety of ways for people who want to help with donations, get involved.
Whether a gift of $1,000, $500 or $25 fits your charitable giving budget, we invite you to join in our mission at Thelma’s Place to provide resources for the community including family support and professional guidance as well as a safe, fun and secure day respite program. Your one time gift or monthly contribution will benefit both our Canby and Redmond locations.
