In Loving Memory

Aaron’s Presents was created to honor the life and memory of a child by giving other children an opportunity to do something positive for the world and for their own lives. These individual acts of goodness, kindness and self-exploration are “presents” given to our communities and to the world, as well as to the children who dreamed them up, and their cumulative impact is a beautiful and tangible legacy that has been and will continue to be a source of joy and healing for years to come for Aaron’s family.

In a similar way, we would like for Aaron’s Presents to offer a means for other individuals, families and communities to honor their loved ones, whether still living or passed away. If our program could possibly bring some comfort and joy to others, that would add even more meaning to the mission and work of Aaron’s Presents.

Once your fund has been established, you can invite people to contribute to it and spread the word through various means such as social media and public notices. There is no minimum amount needed to create a Presents Fund, and your fund will never be closed except at your request, so you may add to it continuously or at specific times (e.g., annual or holiday contributions). 100% of the money in your fund will be used solely to fund projects. In our online gallery, the description of each individual project will include a label specifying that your fund made it possible.

For Individuals, Groups, Teams and Families

What better way to foster a sense of community, teamwork or family than to create a lasting, open-ended fund that will inspire and enable children to think of others and pursue their own passions? Whether you and your friends, co-workers or families are celebrating a holiday, special occasion such as a milestone birthday, overcoming a life obstacle such as an illness, the achievement of a goal, or simply many years of friendship and being together, a Presents Fund is a meaningful way to make a difference.

Once your fund has been established, your friends, relatives, teammates and other contacts will be able to contribute to it and spread the word through various means such as social media. There is no minimum amount needed to create a Presents Fund, and your fund will never be closed except at your request, so you may add to it continuously or at specific times (e.g., annual or holiday contributions). 100% of the money in your fund will be used solely to fund projects. In our online gallery, the description of each individual project will include a label specifying that your fund made it possible.

For Corporations and Small Businesses

Are you looking for a way for your company to give back and make a difference in the lives of children in your community? What better way to foster a sense of teamwork, shared philanthropy and commitment to community than by creating a lasting, open-ended fund that will inspire and enable local children to think of others and pursue their own passions? A Presents Fund is a meaningful way to make a difference as a corporation or small business.

Once your company’s fund has been established, your employees will be able to contribute to it. There is no minimum amount needed to create a Presents Fund. If desired, you can set a company-wide goal and timeframe initially to build excitement, awareness and momentum. Then, once opened, your fund will never be closed except at your request, so your employees may add to it continuously or at specific times (e.g., annual or holiday campaigns). You can also set up a matching program, by which your company will match all contributions up to a certain limit or without a limit.

100% of the money in your fund will be used solely to fund projects. You may also specify a town or region in which your funded projects would originate. In our online gallery, the description of each individual project will include a label specifying that your fund made it possible.
