Ways to Give

Personalized Opportunities

We are eager to work with you to match your desires and abilities with CLC Network’s most urgent needs. Some examples have included dedicated endowment funds in memory of loved ones, annual support earmarked for teachers’ resources, or project-based support for technology needs. To discuss your wishes, contact Jonathan Helder, Advancement Director, at 616-855-3109 or via email.

Planned Giving

In addition to cash gifts, we accept gifts of stock or bonds, IRA account allocations, memorial gifts honoring loved ones, and estate gifts or bequests. As a member of Barnabas Foundation, CLC Network is able to offer its supporters Planned Giving and Estate Planning services at no cost. Their professional staff provides confidential consultation and Planned Giving expertise. Barnabas Foundation can also manage your donor-advised fund and can set up charitable gift annuities and other lifetime-giving options to support your favorite charities while maintaining security for yourself and your family members.

Church Offering and Missional Support

CLC Network’s church services is supported by more than fifty (50) churches annually. With the contributions collected by these churches, we are able to reach out to pastors, volunteers, and congregations across the nation who are seeking resources for supporting and welcoming individuals at all levels of ability and disability.

We are deeply grateful for the outpourings of support we receive from the community through church collections. If you are interested in sharing CLC Network’s message with your congregation during the service or adult education classes, please contact us to request an appearance.

Some churches find it beneficial to create a long-term relationship with CLC Network by considering us as a “Mission” of the church. Similarly to missionaries spreading the gospel around the world, we advocate the core Christian beliefs that every person reflects God’s image and should be welcomed and supported in the Kingdom. Download a flyer explaining this option here.
