The Gift that Keeps on Giving

The benefits of setting up a recurring monthly gift:

  • Get strategic with your giving. Making a donation to a cause feels good, but it feels even better when you commit to the causes that are important to you, and carefully strategize how much you can give. Life is busy, but by setting up a recurring gift, you will know each month that you’ve automatically helped your favorite organizations.
  • Easier on your pocket book. Scheduling your gift helps organizations budget, forecast for expanding programs and helps plan for new projects. A recurring gift also helps you budget as well. Rather than waiting for a year-end gift during the busy holiday season, spreading out your giving makes it easier to budget on a month-to-month basis. You’ll be able to make a donation and feel less of a cash crunch to start your new year.
  • Easier to track. When you choose to give monthly, you’re able to track your donations easier. You can wait until tax season and request one receipt with all of your charitable donations made that fiscal year, or know exactly how much you gave monthly each time you receive your monthly receipts. Beyond tax season, access to your donation history will help you better assess and plan your charitable strategy and budget for the next fiscal year.

Vogel Alcove makes it easy to set up a recurring gift, click on the button below and choose “monthly” under the “select your amount” heading.

For less than a few cups of coffee you can make a recurring monthly impact for the children and families we serve.

Around the Alcove



Aiden was up to his elbows with excitement while playing with farm animals and sand.

Teachers and volunteers assisted Hayden during center time. This activity helps increase small muscle development and the understanding of writing techniques.

During free time, Skylyn and K’Moree worked together on a floor mural. This activity helps their hand-eye coordination and cognitive skills.



Thank you to all of our Volunteers!




Volunteers are so vital to our mission and we can’t thank each of you enough.
