Monthly Donations

Monthly donations help to sustain our everyday work to mobilize volunteers who serve elderly people through our seven core programs. Your commitment ensures the elderly people we serve in five counties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan receive services to keep them engaged in their community, prevent loneliness, and provide them with opportunities to maintain their independence.

As a member of our Monthly Giving Program, you will receive regular stories of our elderly friends and programs so you can see the impact of your gifts. Monthly giving can be automated online through automatic bank withdrawal (ACH), by credit card, or we accept checks payable to Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly. Return envelopes are available for your convenience upon request.

To sign up to become a Monthly Champion, please call Carol, Development Director at 906-482-6944 or email carol.korpela@littlebrothers.org.

Sponsorship Gifts

Your company or community group can sponsor activities and events for Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly. Your gift can underwrite a holiday party, a summer picnic, or a month of medical escorts to name just a few examples.

Bequests and Planned Gifts

Bequests are gifts provided by way of a will. By naming Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly, Upper Mighigan Chapter as a beneficiary in your will or life insurance policy, you ensure that we will be able to serve lonely elderly people in your name far into the future.

In-Kind Gifts

Donations of office supplies and other items help us keep our overhead low. During holiday seasons, organizing friends or coworkers to gather gifts is another great way to help. Refer to our wish list for ideas.

Food Drives

You may organize food drives individually or with a church, school, or other group. By collecting nonperishable goods for our food pantry, you supplement meals for elders on a limited budget.

Special Events

Working with your colleagues and community, you can organize a fundraising event such as a bowl-a-thon, a golf outing, dinner, or picnic. We welcome your ideas, your energy and your community spirit.
