How to Donate to Room in the Inn Shoals:
You can support Room in the Inn through a financial donation or by donating supplies from our wish list.
Room in the Inn Shoals is entirely locally and privately funded. We do not receive any local, state or federal funds. This is intentional so that we can determine our own rules and policies and serve anyone in need without a government agency telling us how to operate. We hold a number of fundraisers each year, receive some local grants, and operate based on donations from local community members and businesses. Every dollar makes a difference!
Every dollar raised stays here in the Shoals and goes toward the operation of our Intake Center. Room in the Inn Shoals Inc. is overseen by a community-based Board of Directors and follows all non-profit guidelines. Our treasurer provides a monthly financial review and we undergo a yearly financial audit. We are a registered 501c3, non-profit organization. Our Tax-ID # is 47-2883572. All donations to Room in the Inn Shoals are tax-deductible.
