Our work at CLR is expansive, but in all of it, we focus on the premier goal – the salvation of souls. We use the issues of life and family to talk about our eternal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Your support makes this possible.
Please join us in supporting this work – one heart at a time – to the glory of God. Your tax-deductible gift in any amount (big or small) makes a difference.
“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
We rely on donors to support our work – and especially those who provide financial resources on a regular giving basis. This ongoing support provides us with monetary stabilization so we can concentrate on our life-affirming ministry work.

“Thrivent Choice®” is a charitable grant program that allows members to recommend where Thrivent Financial distributes part of its charitable outreach grant funds each year.

Are you a Thrivent member? Here’s how to designate your Thrivent Choice Dollars®:
Log into your account at www.thrivent.com (on the opening page, look for “Thrivent Choice” under the “Making a Difference” heading). Or, call 1-800-THRIVENT (800-847-4836) and say “Thrivent Choice” at the prompt. NOTE: You can designate eligible Thrivent Choice Dollars® each quarter to Christian Life Resources or New Beginnings.
Some employers will automatically deduct and submit your gift to Christian Life Resources or even match an employee’s gift to a qualified charitable agency. Contact the Human Resources department where you work and ask them if they participate in a charitable gift program that facilitates and/or matches employee gifts, and how your gift to Christian Life Resources can be matched.
The United Way serves your community by organizing an annual campaign in the workplace for thousands of companies nationwide. “Donor Choice” is a component that allows you, the employee of the company participating in the United Way campaign, to contribute to any qualified charitable agency with a 501(c)(3) non-profit classification, such as Christian Life Resources.
To get started, determine whether or not your employer participates in the United Way campaign. Ask for a Donor Choice form and be sure to designate Christian Life Resources (EIN: 39-1601307) as your charitable agency of choice. Or you can contact your local United Way campaign planners to ask if Christian Life Resources is eligible to receive a workplace designation.
America’s Charities provides a range of programs and services to help charities navigate and thrive in an environment of growing expectations. Donations via credit card, vacation time, and other methods might also be available depending on your employer’s program.

Let your human resources department know you’re interested in giving at work and ask them to contact America’s Charities. Or, you can complete America’s Charities’ contact form, select “workplace giving & employee engagement solutions”, in the message section let them know of your specific interest, and provide the contact information of the appropriate person within your organization. They will follow up and reference your name and interest in workplace giving. If your company already has a workplace giving campaign but would like to include America’s Charities member charities in your campaign, contact America’s Charities and they will explore how they can help.
