How to donate
Donations through Network for Good
Every page on the Citizens for Choice website contains two “Donate” buttons, at the top and the bottom of each page. Clicking on any of the buttons transfers the donor to a donate page designed specifically for Citizens for Choice on our fundraising platform, Network for Good.
Donors are encouraged to create their own accounts on Network for Good, allowing them to review their donations over time.
Donors may send us checks, to Citizens for Choice, PO box 3525, Grass Valley CA, 95945. Checks may be handwritten and mailed by the donor or issued through the donor’s banking bill-pay service.
A bill-pay service may be used to set up automatic periodic donations, e.g., on a monthly basis, reducing the effort required by the donor and ensuring continuing support to Citizens for Choice, including our clinic.
