Monthly Giving

Your monthly financial support of Samaritan Counseling Center provides ongoing sustainability so we can continue to subsidize counseling fees for those in our community who need financial assistance, as well as to fund TeenHope and other Samaritan programs.

You’ll be known as a Samaritan Champion, and as a monthly donor will receive exclusive quarterly updates and content that includes stories of hope and how your support has impacted our community.

Even a small gift can go a long way. Here is how your monthly gift can help those in need:

  • $10 a month can help women who are in crisis receive the counseling they need but are otherwise unable to afford.
  • $25 a month provides 12 mental health screenings for depression, anxiety and suicide risk for local high school or middle school students.
  • $50 a month helps 12 people who have limited financial resources receive the counseling that they need during the year.
  • $100 a month provides a mental health screening for depression, anxiety and suicide risk for 2 classrooms of students.

Testimonials

Linda Peacock, Founding Board President

“I’ve been a long time, ‘since the beginning’ supporter of the Samaritan Center. When this idea of monthly giving was presented, I got on board. It just made sense to me to spread out my giving over the year instead of a lump sum. I wanted them to know that community support was behind them all year long. It made it easier for our family budget also.”

Cathy Gelatka, Board Member

“Monthly giving is an easy and convenient way to make a donation to the Samaritan Counseling Center. The Center has designed online giving to use your donation effectively for intended programs. I feel secure knowing that my recurring gift will be handled with confidentiality. Online donations make the process simple, easy and secure. This method of giving has eliminated looking for my checkbook and stamps to mail my donation! I highly recommend that you consider this easy way to make a monthly donation to the Samaritan Counseling Center.”
