St. Columba receives much of its funding through government grants.  These grants require
anywhere from a 1:5 match (for every 5 dollars of government money, we have to come up with 1
dollar) to a 1:1 match (for every dollar of grant money we have to match with 1 dollar).  

While a majority of the match can be done through actual dollars, we are also permitted by some
funding sources to use in-kind donations.  Things such as food, clothes, and household items are
assigned a value and counted towards our match.  Not only are these items going directly to help
those in need, they are also helping us meet our match to continue to receive grant funding.

St. Columba always welcomes financial gifts.  Donations can be made instantly through PayPal
using the Make a Donation button below.

We are also excited to introduce a new, secure way to make monthly or one time donations from
your bank account or credit card through Give Lively.  Please see the information below to learn
more about how you can support our mission and share with others to spread the word!
