Covenant House is always seeking new monthly donors to join our community. Our face-to-face fundraising partners accept donations on the spot through tablets. This is a convenient and secure mobile giving method that helps us receive your urgently needed contribution as soon as possible. These tablets accept both credit card and bank donations and help reduce administrative costs; our representatives never accept cash. Fundraisers can be identified by their bright yellow vest with the Covenant House logo. If you meet one of our representatives, please feel free to say hello and inquire about the device and our programs.
