Dear Friends,

To serve Jackson County residents in a timely and meaningful way, the Interfaith Board has decided to move forward with a capital campaign to build our new home. This location will provide us an opportunity to expand our services while keeping everything under one roof. The Lunda Charitable Fund has graciously offered a matching grant, up to $800,000, to begin our fundraising. Our campaign will require your assistance and prayers and we hope you will support us and those we serve. Together we can provide an opportunity for you to Give in Faith so we may always Serve With Compassion.

Yours in Faith and with Gratitude,

Interfaith Board of Directors

Our Impact

Building Hope

Potential Building Design

Your Gift Means Hope to Those We Serve.

With the increase in the aging population, the number of families Interfaith is helping continues to grow. We see more people looking for resources to assist them to age in place, and more families caring for individuals living with dementia at home. All this means an increase in grocery deliveries, household chores, yardwork, snow shoveling, transportation requests, and respite. As a result, we have outgrown our one room office that we have called home for over thirty years.

An independent facility will allow us to:

  • Increase the hours for our Time for You Dementia Respite Program, giving us the ability to double the number of participants we serve.
  • Provide a space for regular volunteer training to ensure compassionate safe care for those we serve.
  • Allow staff and volunteers to have separate offices to improve efficiency and to create individual meeting spaces for confidential conversations for families in crisis or participants with critical needs.
  • Create a community room that will allow us to expand community enrichment activities such as programs that combat social isolation, dementia training, game nights, and volunteer gatherings.
  • Meet the expanding needs of our community as our aging population continues to grow. This will allow us to offer additional community resources through program expansion, new programming, and additional volunteer opportunities.

Expanding for Generations

To sustain our program and ensure we are able to meet the increasing demands of the community it is necessary to grow to an independent facility. By expanding our office space and adding a community room, we will be able to increase our staffing and volunteer outreach to meet the grocery delivery, transportation, dementia support, and respite needs we are currently seeing. The community support that we have generated over the last five years has exceeded our yearly expenses, allowing us to grow our reserve.  Interfaith will continue to be fiscally responsible, utilizing volunteers and offering them a critical way to serve others. The increased staffing and program growth will be managed as our resources and community needs change. Our board of directors, staff, volunteers, and community have ensured that we had the resources to offer our programs for over 30 years. This campaign and facility will help ensure our growth and continued sustainability for the future.

Your Help Makes a Difference.

Memorials and In Honor Of

Creating a memorial or in honor of someone's birthday, anniversary, or just because, is a wonderful way to remember or recognize a loved one. Memorials and In Honor Of will be noted in our newsletter publications that are mailed to over 1,500 households in Jackson County and amounts over $500 will be noted on our Facility Campaign Website.

IRA Charitable Rollover

An IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals aged 70 ½ or older to make direct transfers from their IRAs to qualified charitable organizations. Each transfer has a maximum of $100,000 ($200,000 per couple) in any one year. Transfers can be made in more than one installment. Donors with retirement assets in 401K, 403b, or similar accounts must first roll those funds into an IRA and direct the IRA administrator to transfer the funds from the IRA directly to the public charity. IRA transfers do not count as taxable income for federal tax purposes and can count as a donor’s required minimum distribution for the year. To initiate an IRA Charitable Rollover, contact your IRA administrator. It is also appreciated if you inform Interfaith that you are making the IRA Charitable Rollover.


Remember Interfaith in your estate plan or IRA distribution. These funds will help ensure Interfaith programs are able to help the many generations of seniors to follow.
