Make a Donation for Community Well-being

We rely on and cherish private donations throughout the year to support our operations. They are essential to fulfilling the mission of You Call This Yoga – to make yoga accessible to underserved people in Wake County. Your donation is greatly appreciated, as it does make a difference in strengthening individuals and our community.

You Call This Yoga is an IRS-recognized 501c3 educational non-profit organization (since 2010), making your donation tax deductible for personal or business purposes as defined by law. Our Tax ID and other information are available upon request.

Ways to Donate

Cash donations can be made via our secure online link for credit cards, a third-party transfer, or the old-fashioned check. Checks can be made out to You Call This Yoga and mailed to 7508 Haymarket Lane, Raleigh, North Carolina 27615.

Product donations at a reduced or no fee are welcomed and will be used for our yoga classes and other organization activities. We routinely need yoga props and accessories for class productions; food, beverage and supplies for fundraising events; and operational items that help improve business effectiveness.

Professional and support services at a reduced or no fee can greatly enhance the scope and quality of our mission, as well as our humble bottom line. We appreciate the sharing of skills that facilitate our mission to help the physically challenged and underserved improve their life with yoga.

Legacy giving enables individuals to include You Call This Yoga in their estate planning to create a “legacy of community health.”

Contact our Director, Howie Shareff, to discuss various approaches to giving.
