Easiest way yet — especially if time is short for you is to write a tax deductible check to Binky Patrol Inc. We also accept MasterCard and Visa. Since we are a 501c3 corporation, this is completely tax deductible. It costs Binky Patrol $50 to set up a new chapter with information packets, start up materials, etc. Each chapter makes an average of 360 binkies per year. Some chapters make as many as 1,200! That’s a lot of children we are helping.

Dear Volunteers,

We have come upon this list of companies that have “Matching Gift” program. This is a wonderful way to boost the financial contributions to Binky Patrol. Matching gifts programs work this way:

When an employee from a company donates $100 to their favorite charity, the company will match the $100 gift. Policies and procedures vary from company to company. Some will match your volunteer time with $’s for Binky Patrol. This will help offset the costs that your local chapter and our national effort faces with batting, yarn, fabric, labels, buttons, postage and printing. Since we don’t have any paid employees, all of the money goes directly to help us make more blankets to comfort more children and teens.

If your company or your spouse’s company is listed below, ask your employer about their particular policies. If they are not listed below, ask them if they have similar programs. They will want to know our Federal Tax ID Number – (our 501c3 corporate ID) – It is: 33-0723960. We are happy to mail them a brochure or give you or them any information they need. We appreciate your looking into this opportunity. Thank you.
