Ways to Give


You can enhance the support of our caregivers by partnering with us to further the mission and work of our organization.

Your online gift today can make a difference in the lives those we serve tomorrow.

Cash or Check

Feel more secure donating the old-fashioned way? Cash or check is another great way to support HCO’s mission while avoiding any processing fees!

Please make checks payable to Home & Community Options and mail cash or check gifts to:

Home & Community Options
66 East Third Street
Winona, MN 55987

Give from an IRA

If you have excess IRA funds or would like to lower the amount of your required minimum IRA distribution, consider an IRA charitable rollover. Donors 70 ½ or older can make a qualified charitable distribution from their IRA to HCO. Though there is no charitable deduction for an IRA charitable rollover, there is also no tax withheld.

Host a Facebook Fundraiser

Leveraging the power of social media to support the causes that are important to you has never been easier! By setting up a Facebook Fundraiser for HCO, you can engage and empower others to maximize the impact of our work in the community.

Matching Gift Programs

Many employers offer a company match when their employees donate or volunteer their time to local nonprofits.

By submitting a matching gift request to your participating employer, the impact of your gift or time to HCO can go even farther in supporting our mission!

Legacy Giving

Designating HCO as a beneficiary in your will is just one great way to ensure that your legacy of supporting our mission and work can continue on in the years to come.

Other Ways to Help

Material Donations

Not everyone is in a position to give financially, and that’s okay. There are so many different ways that you can support the causes you are passionate about!

Consider a material donation to HCO.

Maximize your impact

Make your giving go twice as far simply by shopping local!

By purchasing a gift card at a local vendor in the Winona area and donating it to HCO, you can support both HCO’s mission and a local business!

And more!
