Make Meaningful Change in Our Community

Supporting Matthew 25’s mission doesn’t have to mean a big financial or time commitment.

Supporting Matthew 25’s mission doesn’t have to mean a big financial or time commitment. It can be as simple as stopping for groceries at the Cultivate Hope Corner Store or grabbing a cup of coffee at Groundswell Cafe. By choosing to do just 10% of your grocery shopping at the Corner Store or eating a meal just once a month at Groundswell, you’re choosing to participate in a sharing economy and making a difference in the lives of your Cedar Rapids neighbors.

Another easy way to help support Matthew 25 is to stay connected and spread the word! Learn about upcoming events, inspiring stories and other Matthew 25 news by signing up to receive our bi-weekly email Memo. Follow us on Facebook (@Matthew25MinistryHub) and share our posts. Tell your friends about the Corner Store, or invite your coworkers to lunch at Groundswell. Consider hosting a fundraiser through your business, community group or on Facebook.

Would you like to give of your time and talents? We offer hands-on volunteer opportunities for all interests and skill levels. Whether you’re taking orders at Groundswell Cafe or getting your hands dirty at the Urban Farm, we need your help. If you’re looking for ways that your company, church group, or community organization can volunteer together, we have group opportunities available. To learn more, visit our volunteer page or contact our volunteer coordinator.

If you can afford a financial gift, consider setting up a recurring donation. Small monthly gifts to Matthew 25 can grow into amazing possibilities for Cedar Rapids neighborhoods. Join our ever-growing community of monthly givers by scheduling a recurring gift online or fill out our an ACH form at our office. Another option is to designate your United Way payroll deduction to Matthew 25. If your employer offers their own giving program, you can give to Matthew 25 and perhaps even double or triple the impact of your gift if your company offers matching contributions.

If you’re looking to make an even bigger impact, we’re happy to talk with you about a variety of planned giving options, such as gifts of stock, bequests, annuities, endowed gifts and more. We would love to help you leave a lasting legacy for the Cedar Rapids community. To learn more, contact our chief development officer at 319-200-2783.
