Monthly Giving Makes Sense
How things have changed over 60 years! One of the changes in today’s world is that we find ourselves living in a “chequeless and cashless” society. It was heading that way before the pandemic, and now it is all the more true. We need to adapt.
Sorrento Centre is very grateful for how so many contribute their time, talent and treasures, all of which allows us to live more fully into our mission and values. We are always concerned about being too ‘money focused’ and are forever grateful for our many cheerful givers. Having said that, we also know that it is a joy to invest in something we feel so deeply about.
Let’s consider how cheerful givers can continue to contribute, a little differently. Monthly Giving (through PreAuthorized Debit or Credit Card) is easy and secure.
At the moment, there are 40 generous churches, organizations and individuals doing this and we’d like to grow this number to 60. After all, it is our 60th Anniversary and we want to ensure another 60 years! These deposits amount to approximately $28,800 a year. The average monthly contribution is $60 (now there’s a coincidence!).
There are benefits to Monthly Giving for everyone:
- Always up to date (this means not having to catch-up at year end)
- You receive a tax deduction at the end of the year
- Monthly Giving is easily changed
For Sorrento Centre:
- Helps us to meet our monthly expenses
- Far easier to budget, knowing a guaranteed monthly income
- Streamlines the entire process
In order to participate in Monthly Giving, please go to the red Donate Now button at the top of this page, and follow the prompts (choose recurring donation). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kathie MacDuff, Associate Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
- $25 a month would help subsidize one of our youth staff positions
- $60 a month would help support our children’s programming including the refurbishment of The Red Barn
- $100 a month would assist our newly revived farm operations
Of course, it would be wonderful if everyone generous enough to donate to Sorrento Centre became a Monthly Giver but that is not possible for several good reasons. We will continue to offer ways to give that are appropriate for everyone.
Thank you so much for your consideration and help in ensuring another 60 transformative years!
