Giving Day 2021

#GivingDay2021

At BCHFS, we rely on the generosity of faithful donors to support our mission. We do not receive funding for services from Federal or State grants that might restrict our ability to share the love of Christ with those we serve. We also do not receive money from the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention. We are supported by churches and individuals that believe in the mission and give generously. By giving to BCHFS, you help to ensure that our life-changing services are affordable to all and that each client has the opportunity to hear and respond to the Gospel of Christ!

To coincide with our Fall Festival this year, we are moving our annual #GivingDay to September 18th, 2021. We want to give our friends that are not able to join us in person an opportunity to still support the mission. We are excited to have a matching pledge for the first $10,000 donated during #GivingDay2021.

About Your Donations, Where & How They are used

By giving of your time, talents, and financial resources you are making an investment in the lives of those we serve. The work of our ministry could not continue without the kindness and generosity of our BCFHS supporting family.

What does a "Match" mean?

When a person or organization agrees to a matching donation, it means that your donation is matched dollar for dollar until the match amount is reached. Basically, when you make a $100 donation, the match also donates $100 so it is making your donation go farther.

Doesn't BCHFS get funding from the state in some way?

No, BCHFS relies solely on the generosity of churches and individuals to cover the cost of providing our services. We don’t receive any federal or state funding for our services that might prohibit our ability to share the love of Christ with those we serve.

Can I become a monthly donor to provide support year round?

Absolutely, we can provide the information about becoming a monthly giver to anyone interested. We can do this through ACH direct from your bank account, or through Credit/Debit card deduction. Click here for more information.

Are there other ways to support BCHFS

First and foremost, we always need prayer. Please continue to pray for the ministries and those who we serve and the staff that provides the services. Additionally, we occasionally have material needs for the Children’s Home, Angel’s Cove, and GraceHaven that donors can provide. Those lists are ever changing and we provide them upon request.
