Good Samaritan Fund

A TESTIMONY:   "The story about a traveller who is stripped of clothing, beaten, and left half dead alongside the road ... Has always stuck with me. 

Two people come by, but both avoid the man.  Finally, the Samaritan happens upon the traveler.   For me, The Good Samaritan is the Church."  —Anne

OUR STORY:   "The Good Samaritan Fund" was created by a wonderful U-M graduate student, Michael W., to assist people with an unforeseen financial emergency. 

Requests must be urgent in nature and the financial support is a one-time occurrence per individual.

HOW YOUR MONEY IS SPENT:  Your $25.00 donation can help provide short-term assistance for basic items, including food, overnight housing; or pay a portion of the cost for someone's Medicare prescription copay.

You can use the "Quantity" field to indicate how much you would like to donate from $1.00-$500. 

Please note that a payment transaction fee (2.9% of the amount donated, plus $.30) is included to process your donation.  The transaction fee will be deducted from your donation.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN MAKING A DONATION!

HOW OUR FAITH COMMUNITY HAS BENEFITED FROM THIS MINISTRY:   The small financial assistance that this fund provides usually exceeds what's available from other social services agencies or programs.  We want to provide assistance for a short-term, emergency situation.  This modest fund enables the church to be a resource that can step in and fill a gap when the easiest thing to do is just pass by someone.  

Funds have been used to: help a few people purchase small stocks of food; buy a firm mattress for a senior citizen with severe back problems; provide a two-day stay at a hotel for a mother and her two daughters; and cover the cost of minor car repairs for one individual.

Did you know that about 50% of Americans couldn't pay an unexpected $400 bill, about the size of a small apartment's rent or the security deposit required to rent a place?  People living on the edge can really suffer without other kinds of financial support.  And, the folks who have called Journey of Faith asking for help — we think, appreciate our ability and willingness to help.
