How can YOU help?
Look, no one likes to discuss fiscal needs, and we hate the process of even asking for it. However, as you know, it is impossible to shelter, feed, cloth or case manage a family or individual without money. I wish absolutely everything we offered was given to us, and our staff was 100% volunteer based. Unfortunately, that is not the case. That being said...
Pinnacle prides itself on being a good steward of the gracious donations you entrust to us to fulfill our missions. The financial review conducted for the 2017 fiscal year revealed that Pinnacle Resource Center has an 86/14 service ratio! That ratio simply means that $0.86 of every dollar you donate goes directly to client services we provide - with a mere $0.14 going to administrative overhead. Our goal by next year, is to have this ratio even more in favor of client services.
"Well, how much should I give?" you may ask. Pinnacle relies on the consistent monthly donations of our donors, and every little bit helps. So, if you want to give us $25.00 per month or $2500.00 per month (hey we can dream, right?) it all goes into the war on poverty in our community. So donate what you can, and we humbly appreciate it no matter what it is.
I also mentioned we would like our staff to be 100% volunteer based. If you would like to contribute to this effort as an individual, group or organization, we would be honored to have you at Pinnacle!
We also graciously accept donations of gently used clothes, furniture, and household items and appliances for our thrift store. Remember! The items donated are either given for free to families in crisis, or 100% of the money earned in our thrift store goes to client services - not into employee pockets!
Finally, Pinnacle is always grateful for any "consumable" items you or your organization may be willing to donate. Consumable items can be anything from the more literal sense of perishable or non-perishable food, to the slightly less literal idea of toilet paper, paper towels, hygiene items of any kind...basically anything you use up regularly in your own home, we NEED here at Pinnacle.
Anything you donate is 100% tax deductible, and we will be glad to send out a tax receipt-letter for your records. For more information on donating to our program, please feel free to reach out to us through our "Contact" tab above.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION!
