Milestone Goals

Did you know that there are donors who set milestone goals for themselves in regard to the donations?  

This helps motivate them to reach certain donation levels and maintain a regular donation schedule.  To celebrate the achievements of our dedicated donors, we host an annual Donor Recognition Event.  Check out the qualifications below to find what goal will work best for you!
