    Non-cash gifts

We partner with iDonate to process most non-cash gifts. When you make a non-cash gift, you are provided with a receipt. iDonate provides a pre-paid shipping label, sells your items and sends the proceeds to St. Mary Development. While your receipt comes from the iDonate Foundation, your donation benefits St. Mary Development! (Not all non-cash gifts can be accepted. Items must have market value that is higher than the cost to ship, transport and liquidate the item. Please contact iDonate at 877-897-4273 with questions about whether specific donations can be accepted.)
