Neighborhood Alliance is funded through a variety of resources, including government contracts, private foundations, individual donations and neighborhood contributions.
Most neighborhood associations give an average annual gift of $100.00 or more.

Donor Designated Program helps raise Funds
Most neighborhood associations are not a charity, or 501(c)3 organization, and as such donors
cannot deduct their gifts from their income tax. This makes it harder to solicit donations for
specific neighborhood improvement projects. Neighborhood Alliance has a solution to this
fundraising dilemma: have your donors donate to Neighborhood Alliance instead!
Seriously, this is what is referred to as the “Donor Designated” program. Your donors can
donate their gift to Neighborhood Alliance (NA) and state on the check that it is ear-marked for
your specific project (ie…Rose Hill Park Project). NA will mail your association a check for the full amount that
was donated and the donor will get a letter they can use for tax purposes.
The only catch is that the neighborhood project must meet the mission statement of Neighborhood Alliance: “to
create safe, attractive and healthy neighborhoods throughout Central Oklahoma.”
Wileman’s Eight Addition Neighborhood Association (between Penn and Villa, NW 62nd and NW 54th) used the
program to encourage residents to donate to their new entryway project and raised several hundred dollars.
Westlawn Gardens Neighborhood Association (around N. Villa and Reno) raised over $7,350 for park renovations
as well, and these are just two of the more than 30 neighborhoods who have taken advantage of this opportunity.
How do you get a Donor Designated project approved? First, you must decide on your project. Then write a letter
to Neighborhood Alliance explaining…
1.) What your project entails
2.) Name, address and phone number of the neighborhood contact person for the project
3.) Timeline of the project (when you will be soliciting donations)
There is a set-up fee to participate in the program and other potential fees noted as follows:
- There is a $10.00 annual set-up fee for each participating organization. This fee will be incurred
when the first donations are processed and will include up to 6 Tax Donation Receipt cards.
Subsequent Tax Donation Receipt cards will cost $1.50 each. Neighborhood Alliance is legally
required to send a Tax Donation Receipt to each contributor.
- Credit Card Processing fees. Neighborhood Alliance has the ability to process credit card
contributions through our website www.nacok.org. Contributors will need to insure that they inform
Neighborhood Alliance that they have made a donor designated contribution and provide the name of
the organization that the contribution is to benefit. The organization that receives the contribution is
responsible for all credit card fees incurred for processing the contribution.
Participating associations will be invoiced for the above noted fees once all contributions have been processed and
Tax Donation Receipts have been completed.
When your project has been reviewed and approved, Neighborhood Alliance will send you a letter giving you
permission to use the Donor Designated program. We can even supply you with a template for a donation pledge
form you can use while soliciting donations. Once you receive permission you can begin your fundraising!
