Ways To Give

There are so many ways to make a difference!

Merakey is a non-profit organization. We count on your generous donations to continue our work helping those who need it most. We appreciate your support — it means the world to us and those we serve!


Annual Fund

Annual fund gifts go directly to the area of greatest need, or to a program of your choosing. In the past, the annual fund has supported community health fairs, peer support conferences, college scholarships, and more. Donations can be given annually or spread out over the year.


Pantry for Pride

For years, teachers and staff at Merakey Centers for Education and Autism would supplement students’ breakfasts and lunches when they came to school without food. The Pantry for Pride program was created to recognize and support their efforts by providing meals for those who need them.


Foster Care Packs

Foster C.A.R.E. Packs provides Comfort And Resource Essentials (C.A.R.E.) to our kids in foster care. The needs of our kids are as unique as their personalities. Sometimes they need sports equipment, clothes, or school supplies. Sometimes a child just wants to select their own bag, so they can have something of their own. Donate a pack today!


Fresh Start Scholarships

The Merakey Foundation supports our substance use programs by providing Fresh Start Recovery Scholarships to individuals in recovery who need extended stable housing.


Recovery Care Kits

It’s hard to imagine how everyday items like food, underwear, bandages, warm socks, and toothbrushes can make a difference, but to someone struggling with addiction and nowhere to turn, a Merakey Recovery Care Kit can be a lifeline.


Amazon Smile

You can support people served by Merakey simply by selecting Merakey Foundation as your charity on Amazon Smile. When you make purchases through Amazon Smile, Amazon donates a percentage to your charity of choice.
