Make a Financial Contribution

Understand how you can contribute and how funds are used

The Community Crisis Center relies upon a number of sources for funding, including local, state and government grants, United Way dollars, grants from private foundations, corporate philanthropies, service clubs and faith institutions, and cash donations by businesses, faith and service groups and individuals. For a copy of our most recent IRS Form 990, click here. Given the uncertainty of public funding, we hope to increase support from individuals, businesses and foundations.

Donations to the Community Crisis Center support the thousands of individuals who come to us each year in crisis situations by allowing us to fulfill our mission to advocate for a healthy, non-violent environment for all people. We provide counseling, shelter, support and referrals to other resources as needed by each individual who contacts us.

Contributions from individuals may be directed toward general operating expenses, facility and maintenance needs, or our endowment fund. You can donate online, by phone or for a printable copy of our donation form, please click here
