Getting Involved as a Donor

Opportunity Knocks is almost completely privately funded. We count on support from individuals to keep our programs going. Please consider getting involved as a donor.

Giving Options


Monthly or recurring gifts let you spread your giving throughout the year, easily budget for charitable contributions and make an ongoing commitment to Opportunity Knocks. To set up a recurring donation, click on the Recurring Donation link below. Then select your donation amount, check the box ‘Create Recurring Donation’ and set your donation frequency (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc). It’s that easy!

Memorial & Honor Gifts

Remember the life of a departed one or honor a special person in your life through a donation to Opportunity Knocks. Donations made in remembrance or in honor of a loved one positively impact individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community.


Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations.

When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Companies usually match donations at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio.

Where to Give

Donate Stock

Donation of appreciated shares of marketable securities like stocks, bonds and mutual funds is an attractive, tax-wise alternative to a cash contribution. Benefits to you are many. You will have lower out-of-pocket costs for your contribution. You may avoid capital gains tax by donating the appreciated securities to OK. You may take a charitable income tax deduction, as defined by law, equal to the value of the donated securities on the date the gift is irrevocably transferred to OK through its intermediary Stock Donator.

Amazon Smile

Connect your AmazonSmile account to support OK and every time you shop, a portion of select sales will be donated. Click below for a direct link to the settings page for setup.
