Giving

Your Generosity Opens Doors

Most of the women we serve are uninsured, underinsured, or lack the financial resources to cover the high cost of quality addiction treatment. Your donation gives a woman the opportunity to find a beautiful, fulfilling life beyond addiction.

Monetary Gifts

Tribute Gift

Make a special donation in honor or in memory of a loved one which gifts a woman the opportunity to find freedom in recovery. The Next Door will send the honoree a letter outlining the impact of your gift.

Join The Core

Join The Next Door’s monthly giving program, the CORE (Committed to Ongoing Recovery for Every woman). Monthly donors are the heart of our ministry and sustain our mission at every level of care. CORE members also get special recognition throughout the year for being committed supporters.

Corporate Partnerships

We gratefully embrace partnerships with local companies committed to making a difference in our community. Examples of potential partnerships could include event sponsorship, in-kind donations, collections drives, or designated giving campaigns.

Matching Gifts

Many employers match their employee’s charitable contributions. Contact your Human Resources office to learn more. We also partner with supporters as matching donors on designated observance days. Days include International Women’s Day, The Big Payback, National Nonprofit Day, Giving Tuesday and more.

Donor Advised Funds

To make your annual charitable giving easier, consider establishing donor advised funds through your investment firm. If you already have designated funds set aside for charitable giving, The Next Door can assist you throughout this process.

Stock Gifts

The Next Door graciously accepts direct transfers of appreciated stock. While empowering women for lifetime recovery, you can also receive a significant tax deduction for your gift.

Amazon Smile

Designate The Next Door as your charity of choice, and Amazon will donate a
portion of your purchases to our organization. Under “Account”, the drop down menu
lists “Your Amazon Smile” where you can link The Next Door as your charity of choice to support for future purchases. Visit Amazon Smile.

Legacy Giving

If The Next Door’s ministry has a place in your heart, or you want to leave a lasting legacy that will impact women battling addiction, consider designating TND in your estate planning/will.

Kroger Community Rewards

By designating TND as your charity of choice, we receive a portion of any purchases made. To sign up, or complete the annual re-enrollment process, visit Kroger Community Rewards as an easy way to support women overcoming addiction.

Non-Monetary Gifts

Many women come to The Next Door with limited resources and to make them feel comfortable during their stay we provide them any items needed. If you would like to donate directly through our Amazon Wish List, you can have items  mailed directly to The Next Door at 402 22nd Ave N., Nashville, TN 37203. Be sure to include a gift note that says your name so we can properly thank you!

We have a library on-site for women to check out books during their time at TND. If you would like to donate a book from our pre-approved Amazon Library Registry, we would greatly appreciate your support! You may also email the Volunteer Coordinator to arrange a time to drop the items off in person. We only accept donations by appointment.

Thank you for considering the gift of a donation to The Next Door!

Invite Your Community to Support TND

We invite supporters of The Next Door to be a part of fundraising and invite new friends to become engaged with our life-changing ministry to women.
“Fundraising is first and foremost, a form of ministry. It is a way of announcing our vision and inviting other people into our mission. As a form of ministry, fundraising is as spiritual of an experience as entering into a time of prayer, visiting the sick or feeding the hungry.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen
The Spirituality of Fundraising
