Become a Monthly Partner

Posted on January 4, 2017

One of the easiest New Year’s Resolutions you can keep in 2017 is to fight homelessness by becoming a monthly partner.

Choosing to give monthly is a positive investment. Monthly giving works, there is no question! The success stories are countless and the benefits are huge for both Metropolitan Ministries and you, our donor.

  • It’s easier for you. Your gift is automatic and can increase/decrease or stop any time.
  • Saves postage costs that can be invested in our programs.
  • Simplifies record keeping – tax receipt is issued annually.
  • Keeps you informed – volunteer opportunities, events, and reporting back on client outcomes.
  • Better stewardship of your gifts – having guaranteed, steady income each month allows us to better plan and implement programs.
  • Your generosity is consistent throughout the year, helping us to budget our needs

Just think of the impact your New Year’s Resolution can make...

For example, every day we see families coming into Metropolitan Ministries that have been living in their cars or on the street.  

A monthly gift of $10 will provide little boys, like Billy and his family, a night’s shelter, warm meals and hope.

If $10 does all that, just think what a monthly gift of  $35 or $52 could do.

Unable to commit to a monthly gift right now? Then please consider a generous onetime gift. Anything you can give will make a difference.

No child should have to sleep in their car or on the streets.

Hurting families need you, not just for today, but in the weeks and months to come. Please consider becoming a monthly partner today – and give children hope in 2017.
