“Before learning about Helping Hands, our company really struggled with how to best meet the personal needs of employees who were struggling, and how to best support mission projects in our areas of interest. We have always chosen to remain anonymous in our giving, and often staying anonymous through a giving process can be difficult. After working with Helping Hands for many years now, we have found that meeting the needs around us has become a streamlined and easy process with the help of their knowledgeable staff and standard processes. They make giving as easy as the click of a button, and are always available to help when a question arises. With the size of our company, we have a lot that filters through Helping Hands, and they are there for us every time, meeting needs and helping make the processing of those needs as quick and seamless as possible. We are so thankful for the partnership with them in sharing the love of Christ!”

Helping Hands Ministries:
My family has used the services of Helping Hands Ministries for several years and in numerous capacities. Bryan, Michelle and team have helped us to enable ministry gifts in our neighborhood and around the world. Helping Hands has facilitated our neighborhood and church in assisting families who have had medical expenses, natural disaster & other types of financial crises. We have used HH to support missionaries and enable mission trips around the world. They have helped us to bring credibility, transparency and accountability to numerous fundraising initiatives & have connected us with other like-minded donors to support various ministries. To be able to get advice on the most tax efficient way to support many people in need has been a blessing. We have come to rely on Bryan & Team not only as advisors and enablers but as true friends.
Helping Hands Employee Assistance Projects:
When my company was looking to engage our employees in giving, I turned to Bryan Green at Helping Hands Ministries who had assisted our family giving for several years. Our goal at the company was to be able to provide assistance to employees in need and offer a way to help with college tuition for the children of our employees. Helping Hands employee assistance has exceeded our expectations. As a company we have awarded 20-30 college scholarships to our employees & others in our “company community". We have also had great participation from our employees when we had employees in need. We have been to fund the funeral of a employee’s sister, repairs from a house fire, medical expenses of an employee with cancer and many other needs. The greatest blessing has been to see the generosity of our employees when given the chance to give via payroll deduction. Helping Hands is a valued partner for all of our corporate giving strategies.

SOUND GUIDANCE IS HERE

CONTRIBUTING IS EASY
Companies, foundations, or individual employees or vendors may make tax-deductible contributions to the CAP.
HELPING IS QUICK
