Giving Opportunities

Donate Now

Your support has the power to make a profound impact.  We request that you consider every opportunity to change the course of a life by partnering with us. More than 55% of Centerstone of Florida's funds come from state, county and local government.  This places our work each year at risk of the effects of recession, a natural disaster or change of government leadership that could reduce funding. 

Without your support, Centerstone will not be able to substantially increase the scope and impact of our reach.  A decrease in support could jeopardize our goal to increase access to care by 50% in the next decade and continue our commitment to community care.

We appreciate your contributions and assure you that we value each gift. Centerstone recognizes that because of your sacrifices and generosity, we are able to serve about 16,000 children, teens, women and men each year here in Florida. Because of you, we can better meet the needs of those with mental health and/or addiction challenges live complete and healthy lives.

There are many options for your gifts. We’d be happy to talk with you personally about the options that are best for you.

Monthly Giving

Today we are at a crossroads.  Centerstone has learned that to effect real change, our efforts must be sustainable.  We know that it is possible to build a society where all can feel empowered to be stronger, to heal and to participate.  We know how to enable people, wherever they live, to enjoy an improved quality of life.  But this knowledge must be fueled with the resolve and cooperation of many others, and so we know that to make it a reality, we must all join together.

The ambitious plans for Centerstone include long-term financial and program goals that will strengthen our efforts nationally, increasing the understanding of mental health issues and inspiring many thousands of new supporters to join Centerstone in providing lasting solutions. With your help, we can provide families around the country with hope. 

By making a commitment to giving monthly to Centerstone, we are better able to plan our financial situation. When we know that we can rely on regular incoming gifts, we are able to serve more people. You can set up a recurring contribution through our on-line tool, click here

Planned Charitable Giving

The philanthropic spirit always finds just the right form of expression. We see this clearly each time we watch the heart-felt desire of a child who is determined to give a gift to a parent or teacher. That determination will always find the perfect way to express itself. And regardless of the form it takes, the value of the gift is beyond measure.

Legacy Fund

Duke Legacy Fund

Today, Centerstone is poised to do much more for our community, region and nation. Raising Centerstone to this new level of national service depends on major transformation gifts and support from all who will join this movement to bring health and wellness to all families.

When you give a gift to the Duke Legacy Fund, provides long-term support for Centerstone of Florida by adding to its endowment. Gifts of an endowment are not spent like annual gifts. They are invested and their principal is never spent. A portion of each year’s return on investment goes toward funding the work of Centerstone. You can give cash, securities or other assets to provide lasting support for generations to come.

Giving Circles

Provide Change

Cumulatively, giving circles are a powerful force. Across the country, in small towns and big cities, people are getting together to learn about their communities, to network, and to enjoy each other’s company. At the same time, they are combining their money and deciding where to donate it. They are giving grants that improve lives and address the pressing needs of their communities.

These giving circles, as they are commonly called, can be small and informal or formally staffed organizations. Individually, giving circles are often low-key. They meet in living rooms and community centers, rely on volunteer staff, and quietly go about the business of improving the world.
