Why should I join the Circle of Hope?
Women in our area are facing difficult pregnancy decisions every day. There were 173 abortions in the ComfortCare service area in just one year. In Lexington, for every six babies born, one is aborted. Staunton has the same percentage of teen pregnancy as the cities of Hampton and Newport News.
These women need you. Your consistent monthly gifts help us to envelop men and women in our community with a Circle of Hope during a time when they feel helpless and vulnerable.
Why should I consider regular monthly giving?
Steady monthly support provides stability and predictability for the ministry. It allows more time to be spent on directly serving patients with assurance that money is flowing to provide for their needs. Monthly giving also saves time and energy for you. Set up a reoccurring gift to save time, checks, and stamps.
How much money do I have to give to be a part of the Circle of Hope?
There is no minimum donation to be a part of the Circle of Hope, monthly or annually. We accept any and all dollar amounts with a grateful heart.
How will this money be used?
ComfortCare is here so that every man and woman facing an unintended pregnancy has life-affirming education and options. When you give, eighty-three cents of every dollar goes directly to caring for patients making these critical decisions. The other seventeen cents goes toward administrative and fundraising expenses to promote this mission.
Can I sponsor a patient?
Absolutely! For just $65 a month, you can provide a Circle of Hope around one ComfortCare patient this year.
What are the ways to give my monthly pledge?
There are many options to make your monthly donation, however we prefer a direct debit from your checking account – that saves us time and money, and more of your dollars will go directly to patient care. Other options are credit card, debit card or mailing us a check each month.
Can I change or discontinue my monthly pledge at any time if my finances change?
Absolutely. Just give us a call or email us.
Will I receive a receipt of notice of my donation?
If you make your monthly donation electronically, you will get an email confirming your donation each month (as long as you gave us your email address when you signed up). You will also get a quarterly statement as well as an annual giving statement at tax time.
If you mail us a check each month, you will receive a receipt in the mail after every donation.
Can I give my monthly gift in honor or memory of someone?
Yes! If you would like to make your monthly donation in honor or memory of a special person in your life, you are given that option when you sign up online. Just include this information in the “notes” section on the sign up page.
Will my payment and personal information be secure?
We use a very reputable processing partner that makes your security a top priority.
Can I designate the date on which my monthly donation will be processed?
Yes! You choose the date you would like your monthly donation to be deducted from your account.
