2020 Cross Country Charity Ride for Mental Health Awareness
On September 23, 2020 Jeremy & Kathryn Hawke will take off on a motorcycle ride across the country in honor of their son, Alex Hawke, who never got to take his ride. We would greatly appreciate your considering joining us on any fraction of that ride to help raise awareness. To learn more about Alex, visit https://alexsstory.org/.
Donations to CFS will go toward the Suicide Prevention and Community Education program. To learn more about this program, please visit https://www.cfsnwmi.org/suicide-prevention.
Child and Family Services strives to ensure safety and well-being of those we serve in times of crisis, challenge, and life transition. We serve communities in more than 20 counties across Northern Michigan, helping families to heal and grow. In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope –that together we can do extraordinary things.
Donating online is easy and secure, but we want you to be aware that there are some fees associated with online credit card donations. Donorbox charges 1.5% for using their platform, and Stripe charges 2.2% + $0.30 for non-Amex card transactions and 3.5% for Amex card transactions.
Donorbox now offers ACH bank transfer (also known as eCheck) payments! In other words, you can now make donations through bank transfers instead of using credit cards.
This is particularly helpful for large donations, as credit card fees are almost three times more expensive than ACH fees. In fact, Stripe charges a 2.2% + $0.30 credit card fee for registered 501c3 nonprofits, while its ACH fee is only 0.80% and is capped at $5 (i.e. if you donate above $625, the fee remains at $5).
You can donate via Facebook with no fees at this link: https://www.facebook.com/donate/617574505768626/ or send us a check to: CFS, 3785 Veterans Dr., Traverse City, MI 498686. For any questions, please give us a call at 231-946-8975.
And THANK YOU for your donation!
