Monthly Giving

Donating monthly is a great way to fit giving into your budget. $10 a month is the same as a cup of coffee and a pastry. $20 a month is the same as a small pizza. $50 is the same as dinner and drinks on a date night. We deeply appreciate every donation and it is put to use immediately.
