Raise the Roof Campaign 2023

Raise the Roof Campaign 2023 - The Selfhelp Home

Construction is now underway on our roof! In 2023, residents of The Selfhelp Home, family and friends will be soaking up the sun on our new roofdeck garden. Our campaign began last Spring, with so many of you generously supporting our efforts, and we’re breaking ground right now. Our project includes upgrading the roof’s structure and beautifying its surroundings so we can enjoy it for decades to come. We’re adding new furniture, a new gazebo and planters and a windscreen to our outdoor deck, with the goal of enjoying the updated space starting in the Summer of 2023. We have contracted with LifeStudio for the Architecture and Design, a Chicago based firm.

What can you do to help, besides counting the minutes until you can visit our roof deck next Summer? Own a piece of the new roof! Become a Selfhelp partner by making your tax-deductible donation today. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Selfhelp Home relies on the generosity of people like you to help us thrive into our second century.

Thank you so much to our cherished Spring Appeal donors whose gifts helped us initiate the rooftop renovation. Won’t you join these generous visionaries to raise the roof at Selfhelp?

To make a gift of stocks/securities

Appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift. When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to The Selfhelp Home, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value — and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits). According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date we receive the transfer.

Please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to give. You can do so by e-mailing [email protected]. If you need to speak to someone 24/7, you can call SCHWAB ALLIANCE @ 800-515-2157 (24/7) with any questions.
