Your gift to the Rescue Mission Alliance of Syracuse NY helps us put love into action through shelter, food, clothing and hope.

It is important to us that you know we have received your donation, and that we are deeply grateful for your support. We strive to maximize the dollars you give by being deliberate with the amount of mail we send.

Supporters who give by mail or over the phone receive “thank you” letters by mail on a monthly basis. Please allow for up to six weeks to receive your acknowledgement letter. In addition, all supporters receive an annual contributions receipt, summarizing their gifts for the calendar year. Donors who give by mail can request to receive only the annual contributions receipt by call 315-701-3822 or by contacting us at

Supporters who give through Rescue Mission websites or platforms operated by the Rescue Mission are sent a “thank you” message by email within 24 hours. In addition, all donors also receive an annual contribution receipt by mail that summarizes their gifts for the calendar year.

Supporters who give through third party platforms like Facebook, GoFundMe, or PayPal Giving will receive acknowledgements from those platforms directly.

However you choose to give, the Rescue Mission will put your life-changing gift to work immediately! Thank you for your support.
