Monetary Donations

The services at Vida directly impact the lives of the women, men and children we serve in the Fox Valley and surrounding communities. All of our services are free of charge. That means we are completely dependent upon the generosity of our donors to open our door every morning. If donating more than $250, you are eligible to be named a Vida sponsor and can make your donation through the sponsorship page here

Vida appreciates planned giving and all corporate and individual gifts of time, talent or treasure. We especially appreciate regular giving by means of a monthly or quarterly pledge. This type of giving will allow us to budget appropriately and avoid disruptions in our service. A reoccurring payment plan can be easily set up through your bank. 

Please feel free to contact our development office at 920-731-4354, if you have any questions or concerns or would like to schedule regular credit card donations.
