How To Help


Because of donors like you, KC Shepherd's Center has expanded our services to reach more older adults in need, providing them with essential resources and fostering a strong sense of community. However, our ability to continue this vital work relies on the generosity of people like YOU. Your support will allow us to make significant strides, and we hope that you will consider joining us in our mission to honor our elders by celebrating, empowering and serving older adults.

Unrestricted contributions are the fuel that enable nonprofits to pay staff and keep the lights on to deliver our critical and essential programs. These gifts help support KC Shepherd's Center's most basic organizational needs that are rarely eligible for grant or foundation support. While contributions to specific programs are greatly appreciated, contributions to our operational and administrative needs are the lifeblood of our ability to acheive our mission. If you would like to make an unrestricted contribution, please indicate that clearly by selecting "Unrestricted Donation" below, so we are able to apply it to our greatest needs.
