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 partnership term in which they will receive our monthly newsletter, be invited to exclusive events, receive a special gift, and 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” and other recognitions published annually.

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 “Online Giving,” and we will begin to move forward together.
