Donate
Although we receive some funding through the government, it is not sufficient to meet the needs of our service recipients. We rely on the generosity of our community to sustain our programs. You can make a tax-deductable contribution through our website, or mail checks payable to Waves, Inc. to 145 Southeast Parkway, Suite 100, Franklin, TN 37064.
