SEND A TRIBUTE
A gift that supports the life-transforming work of JVS SoCal is a wonderful way to honor or memorialize an individual or to mark a special occasion.
Although a monetary gift is the easiest way to donate, you may find it easier or more beneficial to make an outright gift of stock or other appreciated securities. We will work with you and your advisers to plan your gift in the most tax-advantaged way.

JVS will create a personal fundraising page for you to email and post to all of your friends, family, work colleagues and others. Each time a donation is made, you’re alerted so you can thank them for their generous gifts.

With that knowledge, JVS SoCal Ambassadors become influencers within their circle of friends and colleagues, inspiring others to get involved.
