Ways to Give

Support Church of Christ Care Center

Current Giving Campaign

At the end of 2019 and through 2020, our major fundraising focus will be to raise money for a Garden Courtyard  project that will provide for two needs:

    • The courtyard on the west of Assisted Living will be made into a beautiful garden and an external meeting place for residents to gather and relax or exercise. It will have appropriate furniture, a roof structure that will protect residents from the sun, and walking paths for exercise.
    • Inside the Assisted Living, on the 1st floor of the west wing, there will be a suite converted into a lounge for residents to enjoy with their families and for our marketing team to meet with clients. There will also be a passageway constructed through the suite that will make it easy to enter or exit the courtyard.

There will be signage in or near the courtyard with the names of those who participate in giving that corresponds to one of the giving societies.

For more information, contact please contact Doug Edwards, Director of Philanthropy, at 586-285-7128 or e-mail dedwards@cofccc.org. Your generous donations impact the lives of our residents!

Honor/Memorial Gifts

Many make gifts to the Care Center to honor or remember family and friends. This is a wonderful way to express love to friends and family who are grieving.  It is also a way to remember those who are sometimes taken for granted but do so much to enrich our lives.  

Society Levels

All donors are special, important, and needed. Thank you for sharing your generous spirit of gifting. Once donors give up to $500 in a two-year period, they become a part of a giving society. Through generous giving, these donors often inspire others to join them in philanthropy. Once every two years we plan an honor evening where we invite those in the various society levels of giving to be a part of an evening of fellowship, friendship, and honoring. Here is a list of the societies:

BLESSING SOCIETY: Those who give $500 or more
SAMARITAN SOCIETY: $1,000 or more
BARNABAS SOCIETY: $5,000 or more
HERITAGE SOCIETY: $10,000 or more
BUILDERS SOCIETY: $25,000 or more
LEGACY SOCIETY: Final Estate Gifts

Monthly Giving

Monthly gifts are so important to sustain our campus operation.  The staff can help you establish monthly gifts easily through an EFT with your local bank.  Others do monthly gifts through our online giving option using a credit card.  Another way to establish monthly gifts is to send monthly checks or do this automatically through your online banking. 

Planned Giving/Wills/Trusts

For many people, their largest gifts to a charity comes at the end of life through estate gifts. As a minimum, everyone should have a will in place to make sure their life-long possessions go to the intended source.  The Church of Christ Care Center has a Planned Giving Advisory Council (PGAC) who help to advise in this arena.  Please contact the Director of Philanthropy at 586-285-7128 for a list of professionals you may contact for information.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many donors work for companies who are willing to match employee gifts given to certain charities.  Your gift may be worth double or triple its value if your company will match your gift.  Your employer’s HR office will have information available for you, but please feel free to let us know if we may help in this process.

Endowment

While there are many ways to help residents today, it is important to look at the future.  Giving to an endowment fund will help secure our future to serve residents in a continuing way.  Ask us about how to create an endowment or contribute to an existing fund.

Volunteers

The Church of Christ Care Center and Church of Christ Assisted Living love to have volunteers! Volunteers not only leave with a feeling of accomplishment and increased compassion by doing "a job well done", but volunteers save many dollars and often provide services that would be hard to sustain without volunteer help.  Volunteers help us to provide better services for our residents.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our Assisted Living Wellness Coordinator, Katie Murphy at 586-285-6212 or kmurphy@cofccc.org to learn more about how to join our team.
