Red Ribbon Partnership

Red Ribbon Partners provide gifts of all sizes to EFA to sustain our programs and services.  This reliable, consistent giving is the life blood of our organization, providing an even and sustainable flow of resources, and a convenient opportunity for those who prefer to provide support in regular, predictable amounts. 

Corporate Matching Gifts

Matching Gift programs offered by many corporations will match the employee's charitable gift in a variety of rations.  Volunteer Grants are donations made to the employee's charity of choice based on their volunteer hours. 

"In Memory Of" or Tribute Giving

Many of our donors choose to make a contribution in honor of a special person, occasion or in memory of a loved one.  A special letter is sent to the person you are honoring or the family of the person you wish to remember.  This letter will state your name(s) and the person you are honoring/remembering and that you have made a generous contribution, but not the amount.  You will receive a letter for tax purposes stating the amount of the gift.

Naming Opportunities

In 2008, EFA's office space was completely renovated.  As part of the Renovation Celebration, we offered Naming Opportunities.  Some are still available if you would like to donate and name the space.

Donating your Vehicle

Donating your car, truck, motorcycle, boat or RV has never been easier.  To donate your vehicle to EFA, simply click  Vehicle Donation  or call toll free 866-392-4483.  The process is quick and hassle-free and you get the tax deduction.

Hosting a Fundraiser

Turn your birthday, anniversay, or cocktail party into a benefit!  When you host a party or special event, ask your guests to make a donation to EFA.  In addition to being tax deductible, each gift will be recognized and each donor will be thanked.

Event Sponsorships

All of our events depend upon community businesses and corporations for support, and each offers a different set of levels and possibilities for involvement.  We are grateful for our event sponsors and encourage community members to patronize these businesses and thank them for their support of EFA.

Estates, Wills and Planned Giving

Create a personal legacy and receive tax benefits by including EFA in your will.

Gifts of Stock or other Appreciated Assets

We are happy to work with your financial agent or attorney to facilitate this process.

Not-for-Profit Status and CFC Number

Saint Louis Effort for AIDS, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.  Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.  Our United Way / Combined Federal Campaign number is 12948.

Donor Privacy Policy

The personal, contact information that you share with EFA is always treated with respect for your privacy and your wishes.  We do not sell, lease, rent or give contact information to any outside party.  We use this information only to inform you of opportunities to participate in and/or support the mission and work of EFA.

Our annual report does publish the names of our supporters; however you may choose to waive that benefit and give your gift anonymously so that your name does not appear on that list.  Contact information does not appear on any public donor list.
