"For service is our watchword, and there is no reward equal to that of doing the most good, to the most people, in the most need."

- Evangeline Booth, 4th General of The Salvation Army, 1934-1939



Just as Mrs. Joan Kroc decided to give back to the world through her gift to The Salvation Army, you too can give a gift of permanent change that will uplift our disadvantaged communities.

Thank you, in advance, for your generosity and contribution toward making a real and lasting difference.



As The Salvation Army says, “When you put money in our kettle, expect change.” Your donations help us to create real and lasting change for communities in need. Your gift to The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Centers can be used locally, or applied to other locations in need, according to your preference. Your gift will assist underprivileged communities to receive programs, resources, services, and support that their families and children so desperately need. As the old saying goes, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. By encouraging and nurturing our struggling communities, all our communities become stronger.


Thank you for your interest in The Salvation Army's Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in Dayton, Ohio!
Your contributions truly make a difference in your community.

We welcome your donations through the mail to:

Estate and Planned Gifts


Giving an outright gift of cash and goods is not always the optimal choice when making a substantial gift to The Salvation Army. There are a number of creative giving options available, which, though at first may seem complicated, can easily be worked out to the benefit of not only The Army and those we serve, but to you and your loved ones as well. Often, by making a planned gift, you can reduce capital gains or inheritance taxes, retain income for life, secure an income tax deduction, and/or actually increase the benefit of your estate to your loved ones after passing away.
