Donate your car, truck, motorcycle, RV, or boat to STEP by simply completing the form, and we'll reach out to you to arrange the pick-up of your vehicle donation, at no cost to you. You may qualify for a tax deduction while supporting military and Veteran families.

Donate In-Kind

In-kind donations to STEP help offset the cost of critical needs for our families. When we help provide a basic necessity, families can redirect those funds to debt reduction and their savings.


Donating stock can be a tax-efficient way to support our cause. With the potential to receive tax benefits and avoid capital gains taxes, donating appreciated stock is a thoughtful way to support our families and provide hope for a brighter future.


A gift from your IRA required distribution offers an alternative to those donors who do not need the funds for living expenses and want to support the work of STEP.

Legacy &
Planned Giving

Giving via legacy and planned giving ensures that your support continues beyond your lifetime. By including STEP in your estate plan, you leave a lasting impact and potentially receive tax benefits for your estate.


Creating a Facebook fundraiser or donating via Facebook can help amplify the reach and impact of STEP's mission. By leveraging the power of social media, you can rally support from the community and make a positive difference in the lives of our families.
