Become a Monthly Donor

Circle Health Services Monthly Giving Program is an easy and flexible way to help Northeast Ohioans by spreading your gift over a period of time.  Your monthly gift, no matter the size, makes you a part of the solution so you can make a difference to people in need.

How it works:

  1. Contact our Development department at (216) 302.3371 or donate@circlehealthservices.org
  2. Indicate the amount of your contribution to Circle Health Services.
  3. Discuss your donation options (check, credit card, etc.)
  4. Set-up your donation schedule (monthly or quarterly).

For tax purposes, you have the option of receiving one gift acknowledgment each January reflecting all your donations from the previous year or monthly acknowledgement receipts. Your credit card bill can also serve as a monthly record of your contributions.

You can change or stop your contributions at any time. Just notify Circle Health Services in writing at least 7 business days before your next scheduled donation. Donations are processed on the last business day of the month.


Tribute or Memorial Gifts

Whether in memory of a friend or family member or in honor of a birthday, wedding, or other milestone, Circle Health Services welcomes contributions made in recognition of important life events.

Let them know how much you care.  When a gift is made in someone’s honor or memory, the honoree or family member will receive a letter letting them know about your donation. The amount of the gift will be confidential.
