Your generosity changes lives!

We applaud your caring commitment to Unity Care. Without ongoing support from the community, many foster and at-risk youth end up facing life’s challenges alone. Join us in providing a safety net so our youth and families may achieve their goals. We welcome cash contributions, gift cards, and in-kind donations.

  • Cash Contributions

    Your donation helps us meet the basic needs of the youth and families we serve.

  • 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, kids 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.
