Capital Campaign - Temporary Hold
The capital giving campaign for the Memorial Garden and Courtyard Lounge project has been placed on a TEMPORARY HOLD due to COVID-19. All funding given for that project will be held in reserve for this important wellness project. When the campaign is set to resume, you will see a message posted on this site. Please make your gifts unrestricted for the present. If you make known your desire is to help that campaign, we can consider using your gift there when the campaign resumes.
Current Giving Needs
There is a tremendous need for unrestricted gifts to provide a variety of care needs for our residents. From PPE needs for caregivers and residents -- to a variety of daily care needs for residents. Your generous unrestricted gifts will help us through some lean months ahead with COVID. Please give generously to the unrestricted fund or to the greatest need for help at the present time. Your current unrestricted gifts are valued.
When the Capital Campaign Resumes
When our Assisted Living Memorial Garden Courtyard campaign project resumes, designed to be a great boost to residents for outdoor wellness, please review the following two needs:
- The courtyard on the west of Assisted Living will be made into a beautiful garden and an external meeting place for residents to gather and relax or exercise. It will have appropriate furniture, a roof structure that will protect residents from the sun, and walking paths for exercise.
- Inside the Assisted Living, on the 1st floor of the west wing, there will be a suite converted into a lounge for residents to enjoy with their families and for our marketing team to meet with clients. There will also be a passageway constructed through the suite that will make it easy to enter or exit the courtyard.
There will be signage in or near the courtyard with the names of those who participate in giving that corresponds to one of the giving societies.
Many make gifts to the Care Center to honor or remember family and friends. This is a wonderful way to express love to friends and family who are grieving. It is also a way to remember those who are sometimes taken for granted but do so much to enrich our lives.
All donors are special, important, and needed. Thank you for sharing your generous spirit of gifting. Once donors give up to $500 in a two-year period, they become a part of a giving society. Through generous giving, these donors often inspire others to join them in philanthropy. Once every two years we plan an honor evening where we invite those in the various society levels of giving to be a part of an evening of fellowship, friendship, and honoring. Here is a list of the societies:
BLESSING SOCIETY: Those who give $500 or more
SAMARITAN SOCIETY: $1,000 or more
BARNABAS SOCIETY: $5,000 or more
HERITAGE SOCIETY: $10,000 or more
BUILDERS SOCIETY: $25,000 or more
LEGACY SOCIETY: Final Estate Gifts
Monthly gifts are so important to sustain our campus operation. The staff can help you establish monthly gifts easily through an EFT with your local bank. Others do monthly gifts through our online giving option using a credit card. Another way to establish monthly gifts is to send monthly checks or do this automatically through your online banking.
For many people, their largest gifts to a charity comes at the end of life through estate gifts. As a minimum, everyone should have a will in place to make sure their life-long possessions go to the intended source. The Church of Christ Care Center has a Planned Giving Advisory Council (PGAC) who help to advise in this arena. Please contact the Director of Philanthropy at 586-285-7128 for a list of professionals you may contact for information.
Employer Matching Gifts
Many donors work for companies who are willing to match employee gifts given to certain charities. Your gift may be worth double or triple its value if your company will match your gift. Your employer’s HR office will have information available for you, but please feel free to let us know if we may help in this process.

While there are many ways to help residents today, it is important to look at the future. Giving to an endowment fund will help secure our future to serve residents in a continuing way. Ask us about how to create an endowment or contribute to an existing fund.

The Church of Christ Care Center and Church of Christ Assisted Living love to have volunteers! Volunteers not only leave with a feeling of accomplishment and increased compassion by doing "a job well done", but volunteers save many dollars and often provide services that would be hard to sustain without volunteer help. Volunteers help us to provide better services for our residents. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our Assisted Living Wellness Coordinator, Katie Murphy at 586-285-6212 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how to join our team.
