Take Action -- Get Involved!
BE SOCIAL. STAY CONNECTED.
You can help increase Through the Veil’s visibility by using social networking. Like us on Facebook, follow us on twitter, and share our campaigns, articles, and news with your friends.
SHARE. SPREAD THE WORD.
Indigenous people and issues are all but invisible to most, and that allows governments and corporations to abuse their rights. One of the best things you can do to help indigenous people is to tell others about them. Tell three friends about Through the Veil, Pacific Hope or Pacific Gates, and invite them to become members.
Through the Veil's internship program is an integral component to the organization. Donate your time and expertise as an intern or a volunteer for an event, or join a team in one of the nations we serve. You will learn about indigenous people while helping achieve our goals. To find out about internship opportunities, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have expertise in international law, website development and maintenance, public relations, graphic arts, or nonprofit marketing and fund-raising, and if you're willing to donate your services to help Through the Veil and our subsidiary organizations, please contact Scott Husted at email@example.com.
ORGANIZE A TRIBAL SURVIVAL BAZAAR.
Tribal Survival Bazaars are yard sales, art markets or festivals that you can organize in your city among your friends. Set a date, gather together, and sell your wares, emphasizing that the proceeds will be donated to our programs.
TELL US ABOUT YOU.
Send us a quote, video, or photo telling us why you care about indigenous people and why you support Through the Veil, Pacific Hope, or Pacific Gates. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
MAKE US YOUR CAUSE. FUNDRAISE.
Fundraisers can be a lot of fun to coordinate or host. Harness the collective giving power of your friends, family, and co-workers, and simultaneously spread awareness of the Through the Veil family of agencies, and the important work we’re doing worldwide. Whatever you’re doing—hosting an event, running a marathon, organizing a bake sale, or celebrating a birthday—you have the capacity to be an incredible fundraiser. Contact email@example.com for more ideas.
MAKE YOUR GIFT MONTHLY.
Consider making a gift. Make it automatic, monthly, and easy! “Set it and forget it.” Let Through the Veil do more work in the field and spend less resources on fundraising. You can set up an automatic monthly gift to Through the Veil from your checking account by filling out the automatic payment form at your bank and mailing it to us at: Through the Veil, PO Box 1688 Sonoma, CA 95476. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, your gifts are tax deductible!
MAKE YOUR DOLLARS STRETCH.
Find out if your employer offers a matching gift program and make Through the Veil the beneficiary. To learn more contact email@example.com.
LEAVE A LEGACY.
Make Through the Veil the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, 401(k), IRA, or put us in your will to make a lasting, tax deductible legacy benefiting indigenous peoples for generations to come. To learn more contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have appreciated, and want an end-of year tax deduction? Gift them to Through the Veil and save on capital gains. Giving stock held more than 12 months offers a two-fold tax savings. First, you avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. In addition, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Subtracting the tax savings from what you originally paid for the stock can result in a gift that costs just pennies on the dollar. This is an excellent vehicle for stock that has appreciated substantially in value. To learn more contact email@example.com.
We depend on donations of current computer equipment, good quality still and video cameras, recording equipment, stage and sound equipment, cars and vehicles among other items to keep our efforts running. If you can offer any of these items (or others), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
