Your gifts to Heartlinks changes lives
and heals hearts!


There are four primary ways you can donate to Heartlinks:

1) Participate in the Heartlinks Sustaining Partner Program

Provide critical ongoing support to Heartlinks programs by signing up to send an automatic, tax-deductible gift each month via credit card or bank draft.  Regular, ongoing gifts help Heartlinks dedicate more money to support those who are grieving and less on administrative costs. Also, a regular gift each month is an easy, convenient and affordable way for you to make sure your support goes further and impacts even more lives.

Sign up to contribute to our Ongoing Gift Program by completing the online donor form available here and checking the Ongoing Giving. Or e-mail us at or call our office (618) 277-1800 and ask for a Heartlinks representative to set up your ongoing gift.

2) Join the Heartlinks Heroes Major Donor Circle

Give to Heartlinks at a more substantial level and join an elite group of supporters who are ensuring the growth of Heartlinks programs and the continuation of services in our community long into the future. A Heartlinks Major Donor is an individual/family/business providing a gift of $500 or more in the form of either a one-time gift, pledged gifts received over 12 months or a planned estate gift.

Such gifts make a significant impact including providing a full year of individual counseling services for a child to providing monthly programming for a teen support group to underwriting the cost of multiple grief support outreach programs to area community centers.

Members of the Heroes Major Donor Circle receive recognition for their generous gifts in the following ways:

Learn more about becoming a Heartlinks Hero by completing the on-line donor form available here (include link to donor page) and checking the Heartlinks Hero box, emailing us at or calling our office at (618) 277-1800.

3) Memorial or Tribute Gifts

Many families choose to designate a charity as the beneficiary of memorial gifts after the passing of a loved one. If you or your family has experienced a loss, you may, through the funeral home, ask that gifts be designated for and directed to benefit Heartlinks. Special envelopes are provided at the funeral homes for this purpose and may be obtained from your funeral home personnel.

In addition, gifts to Heartlinks can be made in tribute to a living loved one on the occasion of their birthday, anniversary, graduation, holiday or any special date. This is a thoughtful way to celebrate a loved one while helping those who are hurting. You may contact Heartlinks by phone at (618) 277-1800 or email at to arrange this gift. In turn, we will send a Kid’s Care card specially designed by one of our Heartlinks’ kids to your loved one recognizing the special occasion and the donation made in their honor. We will also recognize your gift in a monthly newsletter, if you so desire.

4) Host or Participate in a Heartlinks Fundraising Event

Do you work with a business or organization that likes to have fun while helping others? Heartlinks would love to partner with your group to organize and hold a fundraiser to benefit individuals and families who are grieving. Many area organizations have hosted golf outings, charity auctions, raffles, gala events and more with proceeds benefiting Heartlinks and its programs. Learn more about how your group can support a worthwhile cause and involve employees and members in a fun event by e-mailing us at or calling our office (618) 277-1800. Build good will for your organization, help individuals who need grief support, and have a good time by hosting a fundraiser for Heartlinks!
