Supported Causes

Below are alphabetical links to the Supported Causes. As I live on Sanibel Island, Florida, some causes are especially near and dear to my heart. I ask that any donations be a separate gift apart from any regular giving or tithing that you already do.

If you prefer, you can send the money to me (by cash, check, Venmo, Zelle or PayPal “friends and family” so no fees are taken out), and let me take care of it. I will provide proof of donation.
