To provide the highest quality care and compassionate services that you can count on, and deliver them with a relentless dedication to meeting the unique needs of each and every client we serve. Your collective donations fuel our mission.

Donate a Meal

Meals on Wheels Butler County is joining national efforts to commemorate the historic day in March of 1972 when the Older Americans Act was amended to include a nutrition program for Americans 60 years and older. More than 50 years later, 12 million older Americans are still threatened by or experience hunger, and one in three seniors feels lonely. That is why Meals on Wheels programs from across the country are joining forces to #SaveLunch and raise awareness and support to ensure we can continue to address food insecurity and malnutrition, combat social isolation, enable independence and improve health for decades to come.

Carrying Out Our Mission

There are a number of ways to support Community First Solutions, from making a single gift or a multi-year pledge, remembering us in your estate plans, and more. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, these charitable gifts are important to us and allow us to carry out our mission in a larger way. Private funding from individuals, foundations and corporations has helped to expand and update our buildings and grounds and supported high-priority projects and programming.

How to Donate

Recurring Gifts and Pledges

Many of our donors like the lasting impact and convenience of a recurring gift, and those who want to make a larger gift can spread the payments out over multiple months or years. Gifts can be processed by credit card or by direct debit using an ACH transfer from a chosen financial institution.

Memorial and Tributes

This is a meaningful way to provide a lasting tribute to a special person in your life while helping further the mission of Community First. We send the honoree or the closest family member an acknowledgment stating a memorial or tribute gift was received without mentioning the donated amount.

Gifts of Securities

We accept gifts of securities, including stocks and bonds. A gift of appreciated securities is an easy way for you to make a charitable donation, and you may benefit by avoiding paying capital gains tax and receiving a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities.

Estate and Planned Gifts

Plan a future gift for Community First Solutions through your will, trust, bequest, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, real estate, stock or bonds.

Matching Gifts

Some corporations encourage charitable giving by their employees by offering matching gift programs. Most companies who offer matching gift programs will match an employee or retiree’s gift up to 100%, and some matches will even double or triple the amount of your gift. Ask your employer’s Human Resources Department for more information.

Where to Give

For more than a century, thousands of individuals, corporations and foundations have made a difference in the lives of others by becoming part of our family of donors. Whether large or small, these gifts are important and play an invaluable role in how we continue to carry out our mission.

You have the option of making an unrestricted gift to Community First Solutions or to any of the organizations in the not-for-profit network. An unrestricted gift allows our leadership to make timely decisions about where resources are most needed. The flexibility of unrestricted gifts enables us to quickly respond to high-priority projects or newly emerging or future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time your gift is made.
