Make a Donation

Thank you for your interest in making a donation to On With Life. Through the generosity of donors, the On With Life Foundation is able to ensure our persons served have the equipment, services and environment necessary to succeed. The following donation options are provided to ensure your gift is the best one you ever made.

On With Life Annual Fund

Contributions directed to the On With Life Annual Fund help to make possible a rehabilitation experience like no other, where passionate service, relentless advocating and life-enriching opportunities are emphasized. These gifts provide flexible, unrestricted dollars to support and enhance the On With Life mission. The Annual Fund will support things such as program needs, specialized equipment and family support. Specifically, these funds will impact the following and more:

  • Enrichment of On With Life rehabilitation programs, by offering persons served celebrations and outings and improving the well-being of persons served with environment and program enhancements

  • Rehabilitation equipment, which ensures persons served have the most effective tools for individualized and complex therapy

  • Compassion support, which offers families of those we serve assistance with transportation and meal expenses as needed

  • Family Guest House, which allows family members to stay on On With Life's Ankeny campus free of charge while their loved one is being served

Circle of Life Society 

While each gift to the Annual Fund is significant and appreciated, individual donors who contribute $1,000 or more from January 1 through December 31 will receive membership into the Circle of Life Society, a gift club with special recognition and benefits. 

Therapeutic Grounds Campaign

Donations directed to the Therapeutic Grounds Campaign are used to support On With Life's Therapeutic Grounds project at the Ankeny campus. These gifts help fund future planned enhancements to On With Life's 1.5-acre therapeutic grounds. Visit the Therapeutic Grounds Project page to learn more. 

On With Life Endowment

Your gift to the On With Life Annual Fund and/or a current campaign helps to meet the needs of today. Contributions directed to an On With Life Endowment Fund will allow you to support the needs of tomorrow.
Two options exist through the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines:

  • Gifts can be made to the On With Life Fund, a traditional endowment where interest income can be put back into programs.

  • By donating to the On With Life Endow Iowa Fund, a permanently endowed fund where interest income is put back into programs, you are eligible to receive a 25% Iowa tax credit in addition to the federal tax deduction. Tax credits are offered on a first come, first serve basis, with approximately $6 million available annually statewide.
