DAF Direct

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes.

If you have a Donor Advised Fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to this nonprofit directly from your DAF, as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization consents to participation.

Honors & Memorials

Our Epworth community stands together during times of hardship, mourning, and remembrance. When you pay tribute to or honor a friend, loved one, or community member with a gift that goes directly to help a youth in crisis, a note acknowledging your gift will be sent to the honoree’s friend or family member.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts from your company can create a larger and more significant impact on your own personal donation to Epworth’s kids, teens, and families. Check with your company’s Human Resources office to find out more information about your company’s capacity for matching gifts or contact Epworth’s Development at to find out which companies we may already have a matching gift relationship with.

Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds

The fastest and easiest way to make a stock gift is to do an electronic transfer. Your broker will need the following information:

Participant number/DTC number: 2170
Commerce Trust Co ID number: 26447 (or Affirming Institution number)
Commerce Trust Co Agent Bank number: 26388
Account name and number: Epworth Children & Family Services #690105036
Attn: Dan Rice (314-746-3304) or Briana Goebel (314-746-7276)

Commerce Trust Co
Epworth Children & Family Services #690105036
Attn: Dan Rice, Administrator
8000 Forsyth Blvd., 6th Floor,
St. Louis MO 63105

It is very important that we know your name and mailing address and the type of stock and number of shares you are gifting before or as soon as the stock is transferred. Without this information we do not know who sent the donation of stock and therefore cannot send a tax receipt or any kind of acknowledgement.

Your donation helps youth like Justice.

Epworth has always believed in being yourself and being comfortable with yourself. They taught me to embrace what makes me different.
