Fundraising Today Is More Than Just A Check

May 26, 2020

Nonprofits like McMains Children’s Developmental Center thrive on the generosity and community-building efforts of the public. We truly cannot do what we do without the help and support of a village of volunteers, donors, and ambassadors who are dedicated to making a difference in our area.

Your support and help are needed as we enter Phase 1 of reopening. Donations are a lifeline for nonprofits like us. As it happens, our reopening coincides with our annual Capable Kids Campaign. This campaign is our ongoing fundraising effort that helps maintain the Center’s operations and allows us to continue providing comprehensive, individualized therapies to our kids regardless of their ability to pay.

While it can be easy to think of fundraising as something for people with deep pockets, the truth is that every little bit helps, and there are many ways to contribute. Though we always welcome donations on our website, there are other ways to give that can make a big impact on our ability to offer services without making a big impact on your wallet.

Amazon SmileIf you are looking for an easy way to give back and you utilize the convenience of online shopping, why not make donating just as convenient? All you have to do is go to instead of the normal Amazon website when you shop. There you can select McMains Children’s Developmental Center as your charity of choice. After that, a portion of everything you buy through Amazon’s Smile program generates a donation back to the Center.

Billy Heroman's Helping Hands ProgramBilly Heroman's has something special blooming- their Helping Hands Program. For orders online the Helping Hands Program will be the last field when you reach the Checkout Page. Choose McMains Children's Developmental Center, and a portion of your order will come back to us.

Employer Charitable Match Program – Many companies encourage their employees to give by establishing a charitable matching program. While guidelines and amounts can vary with each company, this is an easy way to make your donation go even further. Want to see if your company has this program? Contact our Director of Development, Lindi, and she will do the research for you and help you streamline the paperwork.

Recurring Donation – A recurring donation of as little as $10 a month is a significant benefit to the Center as it helps us better budget and maintain a secure stream of revenue.
