Ways to Support

Donating to VCHC veterans programs tells us you care and want to help veterans financially, with housing, employment, education, wellness, or any number of challenging areas of life they face after returning home from service.

Consider pledging 61 cents a day! Just $19 a month can save a veteran’s life. On our PayPal Donation page, click “Monthly”

Workplace giving is an easy and fun way to make tax-deductible donations to the VCHC through payroll deductions. Many employers offer match programs for your donation.

Our veterans have little to no income. Gift cards help them to purchase food, clothing, gas, and other items that most of us take for granted.

Honor someone who has passed away. Donate to celebrate a new life or begining. When you make a donation to VCHC in honor or in memory of someone, you give a unique gift that helps end Veteran homelessness and hunger.  

A bequest is a gift from your estate. A transfer of securities, cash or other property (such as a car or house) made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to VCHC by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to Veterans and Community Housing Coalition or by designating VCHC as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy. 

Your tax-deductible donation enables VCHC to help the hundreds of veterans and their families we serve. 100% of all donations directly assist the homeless veterans that we serve.

VCHC hosts one fundraiser a year, The Annual Veterans’ Ball. This event sells out every year and has been labeled by Saratoga Today Magazine as the “Go-to Military Event in the Northeast”  By sponsoring the Annual Veterans’ Ball, your organization, company or foundation supports our work to end veteran homelessness. We proudly showcase all our sponsors on our media platforms, promoting their generous support! To learn more about event sponsorship, please contact us for more information.

  • Community Drive – Rally your co-workers, school, or community group to collect food, cleaning supplies, and personal care items to benefit veterans and their families in our programs
  • Benefit Event – Plan a walk, run, golf tournament, motorcycle ride, etc. to raise funds for our programs at VCHC
  • Annual Veterans’ Ball and Auction – help VCHC staff during our annual formal fundraising gala
