• Seaholm Offers Support (SOS)         SOS Logo

    Seaholm Offers Support (SOS) is a service organization that supports members of the Birmingham Public Schools community. SOS provides volunteer services and limited financial support to families within the community who experience temporary need. Seaholm parents and students work together with the goal of building a stronger community through acts of kindness. SOS was established in 2008 and over more than 10 years the organization has been able to fund and support a vast array of community needs.  Examples include:

    • Annual $1,000 scholarships to college-bound seniors
    • Thanksgiving grocery cards to dozens of families in need each year
    • Holiday gift giving to families in need each year
    • Financial aid for those faced with sudden emergencies
    • Leaf raking for area seniors
    • Student-organized assistance for those unable to perform household chores

    Respecting family privacy is paramount. In most cases, needs are filled anonymously.

    Seaholm Offers Support is a 501(c)(3) organization.

    If you are interested in donating to SOS, please contact Amy Hochkammer at 248-229-8405 or Beth Kiefer at 248-227-7092

    A Tax-Wise Way to Support SOS  

    If you are over the age of 70 1/2, you can donate part of your IRA, up to $100,000, to a qualified 501(c)(3) orgainzation, like SOS.  For those already taking required minimum distributions from their IRA, this can be an ideal way to lower your taxable income".
