We invite you to view a short video to see the positive impact that comes from your support.
Join the 1921 Society
The 1921 Society was established to honor the generations of leadership supporters who have helped Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley serve our most vulnerable neighbors each year. Named for the year CSSMV was founded, the society recognizes annual contributors who support our work with gifts of $1,000 or more each year.
Most gifts at this level are designated toward our Annual Fund. As the primary source of operating funds for agency programs, services and direct client support, the dollars raised by the Annual Fund significantly impact the agency’s capacity to serve more than 20,000 people each year.
For more information, please contact Mike Lehner, director of marketing & development, at (937) 223-7217 ext.1142.
Support our 2021 Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is the most convenient and impactful way you can support Catholic Social Services each year. As the primary source of operating funding for programs, services and direct client support, the dollars raised by the Annual Fund allow CSSMV to perform its mission each year.
Thanks to broad community support for the Annual Fund, we were able to serve more than 21,000 of our most vulnerable neighbors last year. With your support, 2021 will be no different.
There are several ways you can make your gift:
Cash, check or credit card gifts can be made easily through the mail or in person. Our administrative office is located at 922 W. Riverview Avenue, Dayton, Ohio 45402. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our office hours have been shortened to 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If you wish to drop off a donation later in the day, please call ahead to (937) 223-7217 to see if someone may be in the office to assist you.
We also encourage you to visit our secure online giving portal HERE, where you can make a one-time gift or set up monthly or recurring gifts with a credit card or EFT.
Matching Gifts & Payroll Deductions
Many employers offer the opportunity to make gifts to CSSMV through payroll or matching gift opportunities. We invite you to ask your employer if there are opportunities for you to support CSSMV in this way.
Honor & Memorial Gifts
Donors may make contributions in honor of or in memory of special people in their lives. Gifts will be recognized in writing to both the donor and the recipient or family of the honoree or memorialized individual.
IRA Distribution & More
Are you over 70 1/2 years young? If so, did you know that you can avoid having your IRA distribution count as taxable income by donating it directly to CSSMV? We invite you to consult your financial advisor to learn more about this great opportunity.
In addition to IRA opportunities, CSSMV also accepts gifts of securities, bequests, trusts, retirement plans and life insurance policies.
