2020 New Donor Levels

What Level of Support do you want to belong in 2020?

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, receive 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 Friendship Center Donor Tree along with other recognitions published throughout the year.
