Since its inception Cherry Street has received an overwhelming amount of community support. We have had adequate funding from the beginning to provide for the cost of materials and other operating costs. However, we regularly apply for grants from various foundations to help with salaries and other special projects. The center receives no funding from the federal or state government. Below you will find a few of the many ways you can give to Cherry Street. Contributors who donate $200 or more per year will receive a tax-deductible receipt at the end of the year.
Sponsor A Child
Cherry Street is a ministry and we plan to continue to serve the children free of charge. We rely on gifts from generous people to continue making that possible. You may wish to choose to sponsor a child for a year or a month. If you are interested in this program, please call the Director at 620-431-2161 between the hours of 1-5pm on Monday thru Thursday for details.
Monthly Support for Operations
Monthly contributions are the financial backbone of this ministry. Cherry Street relies on the kindness of those who care about children to keep this ministry going. Although the Center is able to operate on a relatively small amount of money, your help is always needed and welcomed.
Wills, Estates, and Other Planned Gifts
There is no one better than you who can decide how you would like your legacy to be passed on after you are deceased. Wills and Estate planning allow for you to insure that the programs you care about will be able to continue through your generous gifts of support.
There are many excellent attorneys specializing in Wills and Estate Planning who can guide you with the best way for the gift that you want to leave to help both you and this ministry. They can help you with various Trusts, Annuities, Insurance Policies, etc. that can allow you to give and see the benefits of your gifts today and utilize the best tax advantages.
