Recurring Donations

If you would like to make contributions to the Ashland Emergency Fund on a regular basis, there are several ways to do this:
  • Online bill-pay, offered by most banks and credit unions, can be used to set up a recurring monthly payment to any person, company, or organization, including the AEF. Simply enter Ashland Emergency Fund as the payee and enter our mailing address (P.O. Box 112, Ashland MA 01721).
  • You can set up a recurring monthly, quarterly, or annual donation with either your credit/ debit card or direct debit from your checking account through Network for Good.
  • Some companies allow their employees to make charitable contributions via a pre-tax payroll deduction, and may even match these gifts. Ask your human resources department to see if your employer supports this option.
United Way of Tri-County
