Your Generosity to Unity Care Changes Lives!

We applaud your caring commitment to Unity Care.

Without ongoing support from the community, many foster and underserved youth end up facing life’s challenges alone. Join us in supporting our transitional age youth, so that they may build a better future. We welcome cash contributions, gift cards, and in-kind donations.

We are currently running our second annual holiday appeal! Please make a gift to our holiday appeal today and help foster youth and emerging adults succeed all year long.

Matching Gifts

Many companies and corporate foundations match their employee’s gifts to nonprofit organizations like Unity Care. If your company has a matching gift program, please request a matching gift for your cash donation or volunteer hours.

Gift Cards

Many times, youth come to Unity Care abruptly and without clothes or shoes. Gift cards in any amount from local stores such as Target, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s, and Safeway are a welcome way to meet the diverse needs of our youth and families.

Please mail gift cards to:
Unity Care Development Department
1400 Parkmoor Ave. Suite 115
San Jose, CA 95126.
