Consider our different donor options

Thank you for investing in us.

Here are 4 easy ways for you to give:

1) Donate directly with our eTapestry online banking system

  • Just choose the Ministry you would like to support, enter an Amount, and the use the tab key to go through the rest of the form, clicking on the Submit button at the end to complete your donation. Thanks!

2) Donate directly with online banking or by mail

  • If you would like to support our work directly without having eTapestry (2%) or United Way (8%) overhead expenses deducted from your donation, please use your online banking “Bill Pay” feature to direct your donation or write a check to “His Branches, Inc.” designating “Embracing Options” in the Memo line, and send it to us at:

His Branches, Inc.

342 Arnett Blvd, Suite 1

Rochester, NY 14619


3) Donate by shopping online with iGive

  • The free iGive Button doesn’t change your shopping habits. This tiny addition to your browser just automatically tells participating stores that you want your shopping to support our parent ministry, His Branches, then we receive a check! Click on the logo below to find out how to set up the iGive Button on your computer.



4) Donate during the Rochester United Way Campaign

  • Click on the   United Way  logo below to get a copy of the 2014 United Way Donor Pledge Form so you can see what it looks like before you get one at work and have to fill it out.
  • Print out and examine your Pledge Form carefully if you want to direct all or part of your United Way gift to His Branches, because how you fill it out is very important. It’s helpful to fill out the form in advance so you can make sure you’ve done it the way you want.
  • In the box in the center of the page with the large YES in it, indicate the total amount of your 2014 pledge in the upper left where it says MY TOTAL GIFT IS.
  • Leave the check boxes in the  blue section  below that blank, unless you want part of your gift to be distributed by the United Way to other agencies.
  • Finally, just below the blue section you’ll see 2 lines that ask for your Donor Option choices. To designate all or part of your gift to us, fill one of these lines out like this:

    “Please give $XXX.XX to this organization: His Branches, Inc. ID# 2480

  • When you’re done, please contact us and let us know that you’ve donated to Embracing Options through the United Way.
  • It’s as simple (or complicated) as that!
