Designated Giving

Some donors like to give to specific programs or projects. Here are just a few possibilities. If you would like to donate to a specific fund not listed here, please call us at 501.906.4209.

      Children’s Bible Fund:  A gift of a Bible is waiting on every child, teen and mother who enters the Methodist Family Health continuum of  care. These gifts are made possible by the Children’s Bible Fund, part of the spirituality component at MFH. The age-appropriate Bibles are gifts that belong to the clients. MFH is grateful that the Children’s Bible Fund is supported by churches across the state, church groups, mission committees and individuals.

      Classroom Supplies: If you would like to support the education component of Methodist Family Health care, funds are always needed for student and teacher resources, books, and classroom supplies.

      Scholarship Fund: The Methodist Family Health Scholarship Fund provides educational financial assistance to qualified former or current residents of Methodist Children’s Home programs. Applicants may be engaged in part-time or full-time post-secondary education. Eligible post-secondary programs include college, graduate school, vocational/technical programs or trade schools. This fund is made possible by the Olin C. Chambers Trust and Gradelle Leigh Trust.

      The Rev. Regnier Memorial Summer Camp Fund:  This fund enables children who are residents of our group home programs to enjoy a week of camp and outdoor activities, complete with campfires, arts and crafts, games, recreation, and spirituality services. This fund is named in memory of former Methodist Children’s Home CEO Rev. Robert Regnier.

       Individual Programs and Services: To learn more about giving to support specific programs and services, call  501.906.4209.

Tributes

What better way to pay tribute to a special person in your life — past or present — than with a gift that provides behavioral, emotional and spiritual support for future generations of children and families.

Planned Giving

Many people who support the Methodist Family Health Foundation say it is one of the most satisfying experiences of their lives, and they would like to do more. Here are some ways to support us that you might not have considered. Please feel free to call us to discuss this in greater detail.

Christmas Campaign

The holidays are all about giving, and there are so many ways to help children and families this time of year.

In-Kind Donations

Talk to your child or grandchild about children who might not be with their families this Christmas, and take them to purchase a football, soccer ball or jump rope. Donate those items to Methodist Family Health. This type of giving is also appreciated year round.

Church Giving

Participate in one of the special Sunday offerings at your local United Methodist Church to benefit the children and families of Methodist Family Health. For 2016, the MFH Christmas appeal offerings will be collected December 11 and December 18 in most churches.

Events

Join the fun. Participate in some of our many special events, such as the Walk for Children and Families, the Get Up & Give collection drive, the online Share Event, or the “Southern Silks” special event.

To learn more about any of these opportunities, contact the MFH Foundation office at 501.906.4209 or Carolyn McCone, executive director, cmccone@methodistfamily.org

The MFH Foundation is located at 1600 Aldersgate Road, Suite 100, Little Rock, Ark. 72205. The mailing address is P.O. Box 56050, Little Rock, AR 72215.

Volunteering 

Be an ambassador. Encourage your church or community organizations to learn more about MFH and lend support. This may be on a one-time, project or ongoing basis.

Church Support

Connection with a church community is essential. Churches have unique opportunities to serve in the following ways.

Spirituality Service

Any worship experience, whether involving music, devotionals, games, drama or even snacks may fit this description. We believe this is something your church can customize to match your particular gifts and talents.

“Adopt”/Sponsor

Adopt a cottage at the Children’s Home, a group home around the state, a unit at the hospital, or an Arkansas CARES cottage to help provide for the ongoing needs. This can include such things as furnishings, clothing, books, art supplies, etc.
