Monetary Gifts

Monetary donations are always greatly appreciated, and we can often stretch your money; for example, many companies offer matching funds for donations (inquire with your company), we are tax exempt and your donation is tax deductible, and as a partner of Great Plains Food Bank, we can obtain food at a reduced cost.  Your gift would be used for the following: general operating expenses (i.e. utilities, supplies for the shelter and food pantry, and facility maintenance), furnishings (i.e. replacing beds and dressers at the shelter), food at both the shelter and food pantry, etc.  You can specifiy what program you would like your gift to go towards (note this in the memo section on a check); otherwise, we will use it where the need is the grestest!


Thank you!
