Individual Donations

It is so heartening when we receive a gift from a generous donor that allows us to say “yes” to one more child who needs Assistance League of San Bernardino.

More children than ever need the strength and comfort of Assistance League of San Bernardino and their philanthropies Operation School Bell and the Dr. Earl R. Crane Children’s Dental Center. Because of you, Assistance League of San Bernardino opens the door to deserving children whose families are in a financial hardship. Your gift will be used wisely so children can receive clothing or dental care they may desperately need.

Contributions can be made by check or via the Donate Now button.  You may also use the United Way donor-designated program at your workplace.
