Where does the money go?

Since we are 100% volunteer operated, each person who works with us shares our passion for helping others gratuitously. We see ourselves as conservative stewards of what you donate. 10% of every dollar is committed to an endowment fund to ensure the work we do is perpetuated far into the future. We have set a goal for the remainder of no more than 15% for operating costs, which we see as possible with our all-volunteer  workforce.  There is an internal system of checks and balances to protect your donation so that the most funding possible addresses our stated goals.



Make Monthly Donations, Automatically


Giving a small amount on a monthly basis will help ensure we have the funds to assist those desperately in need.  Please consider subscribing to become a monthly sponsor.  If you do, It will certainly make a difference in many lives, maybe even save someone's life.  This is your chance to help people who truly need it and cannot get specialized assistance for CM / SM anywhere else.  You only have to sign up once and we will bill your credit card automatically each month based on the plan you subscribe to.  There is no minimum number of months to become a sponsor and you may cancel your subscription at any time.  But why would you want to?  Donations to this organization are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law because we meet the requirements under IRS code 501(c)(3) for tax exempt status as a Non-profit Charity.  With all of the good you can do (not to mention the tax deductible thing) how can you say no?  It's a win-win situation for all.  Subscribe to be a monthly Sponsor today.
