Ladder of Hope Giving Society

May 19, 2020

Guild is fortunate to have an extended family of supporters that are committed to sustainable, multi-year gifts. We depend on these donors to help us plan for the future. When you join the Ladder of Hope Giving Society, you signal your commitment to our future and you will be honored in our Annual Impact Reporting and on our Ladder of Hope giving wall (ladders are pictured above). 

What Is The Ladder of Hope Giving Society? 

We have over 200 leaders in giving at Guild. These passionate individuals, couples, and businesses have made a multi-year commitment to help us meet our mission, achieve sustainability, and realize our vision. They are our Ladder of Hope Giving Society and contribute at one of the following levels:

Bridge to Life: Individuals or organizations who have pledged to contribute $10,000 a year for five years. By giving at this level, you can help us continue to respond within 24 hours to all of the new individuals and families calling us for help. 

Reach to Freedom: Individuals or organizations who have pledged to contribute $5,000 a year for five years. $5,000 is nearly what it costs to help three individuals experiencing emergency situations receive crisis stabilization services without high-cost hospitalization and without becoming homeless.

Rung to Wellness: Individuals or organizations who have pledged to contribute $1,000 per year for five years. $1,000 is the average monthly cost to help one individual in his or her journey to recovery. $1,000 a year is just $83 a month.

Join now by donating one of the set amounts and choosing “Ladder of Hope Giving Society” on the drop-down menu.
