Financial Support for Crisis Connection

 

 

"Crisis Connection helped my wife through a very hard time last fall. I wanted to do something in return for such a needed service in our community".

Volunteers and staff struggle to answer all calls on the caller's first try.  Many times there are just too many calls and not enough people to answer them. Your donation can help us in recruiting more volunteers and staff, especially for late night hours when it is difficult to find volunteers.  Donations also go to maintaining our complex phone system and covering other expenses for our critical 24/7 free crisis hotline operation.  Not only do we provide a compassionate, listening ear, but we are efficient: our average call cost is $14.  Compare this to the high cost of other services for those in crisis, such as the hospital emergency room at $527 or a one-day Minnesota in-patient hospital stay at $2544.

Donations can come in many forms. Please see the information below for options for financial support of Crisis Connection. Thank you for supporting our mission. Please call if you have any questions: 612-852-2200.

Gifts of Stock & Planned Giving

 

Gifts of appreciated securities can provide you with the opportunity to make a substantial gift to Crisis Connection , avoid capital gains taxes and use the gift as a charitable tax deduction.  Please call our offices at 612-852-2200 to speak with the Director of Financial Development about gifts of stock.  Planned giving allows you to include Crisis Connection in your estate and future financial plans. Your planned gifts ensure that Crisis Connection will benefit in the future, and can be made in a variety of ways:

  • Charitable Bequest from Wills, leaving a percentage or dollar amount to Crisis Connection following your death

  • Gifts of Life Insurance, making Crisis Connection a beneficiary of the policy

  • Retirement Plan Benefits, naming Crisis Connection as a beneficiary of remaining funds following your death

  • Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRT) allowing an immediate charitable contribution tax deduction and naming Crisis Connection as a recipient of remaining assets of the trust later

We recommend you consult your retirement or estate planner to learn more about these planned giving options. Thank you for supporting the work of Crisis Connection where,

     Every hour of every day, someone is here to listen.
