Financial Partnership

Donors of the Friendship Center actively obey Matthew 25:35-40 to the surrounding MLK community, and greater Des Moines. This emerging group financially partners with the Friendship Center and is a voice within their larger communities as allies for the ministries of the center.

The basic structure of a Ministry Donor is that each member commits to an annual term of partnership in which they will receive our monthly newsletter, invited to exclusive events, recieve a special gift and will be expected to contribute monthly.

Each individual, Family or Business Group contributing as a Ministry Providers Level and above will be recognized on the “Donor Tree” along with other recognitions published throughout the year.

Summer Ministry Partnership

4 weeks of Day Camp is offered at the Center each July.  Groups / Mission Teams are utilized to lead the Camp, which is open to kids and youth ages 4-8th Grade.  Groups will need to be made up of youth and/or adults of high school age and above.

Weekly Ministry Partners

Many of the ministries of the Center are reliant upon volunteers.  Please consider joining us by volunteering in one of our ministries.  (Ministries are listed under the About Us tab.)

End-of-the-year Stock Donation

Tax Benefits of Donating Stock to the Friendship Center. If the stock has increased in value from the time of purchase, the owner can avoid paying the capital gains tax by donating the security to another party. When the security is being donated to a charitable organization, the total amount will still be eligible for a tax deduction.

The offering of your time, giftedness or financial support of this ministry would be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in joining this emerging group of partners, please fill out the form under the “Online Giving,” and we will begin to move forward together. As a thank you, the center would like to send you a Thank you box that includes a Bible, a copy of “When Helping Hurts,” and one Friendship Center T-shirt (one per donor).
