Opportunities to Contribute to the Children's Home
Each gift, whether it is large or small, one time, or repeated on a regular basis causes heartfelt thanks to permeate the hearts and minds of us who are directly associated with Texarkana Baptist Children's Home. However, we do encourage repeat giving as this helps us in long range planning such as in budgets and special projects. Multiple fund choices are presented to fit the benevolent desires of contributors as much as possible. The Trustees do encourage gifts to the general operating fund because that is the fund that keeps the doors open for present and future residents. Be assured that each gift is tax deductible and will be acknowledged with a personal letter and receipt. God bless you for standing tall by stooping low enough to extend a helping hand to needful children.
