Ways to Give

Monthly Giving

Break down your annual contribution into manageable installments! To join our community of Monthly Donors, contact Meg Schenk. There is a $5 monthly minimum contribution requirement to participate.

  • When setting up your Monthly Giving, please specify whether you want your monthly contribution to be processed on the 1st or the 15th day of each month.
  • Monthly gifts are set up for monthly charges to a credit or debit card. Currently, we cannot process Automatic Funds Transfers from bank accounts.
  • Many companies offer ways for you to donate automatically to your favorite nonprofit organization as an automatic payroll deduction. See your HR representative for more information.
