Memorials are a beautiful tribute and a way to remember deceased as well as living loved ones while also assisting others in need. Those honored are remembered regularly in our prayers. You can make a donation by check or make a donation online.
The Christ Child Society gratefully appreciates bequests. Planned giving is a great resource and creates a beautiful legacy.
A bequest is a gift made through a donor’s will and is the simplest and most common planned gift. Please contact your attorney and the Christ Child Society Director of Fundraising at 414-313-0232 to make arrangements or for more information.

For charitable organizations and individual donors alike, matching gift programs are an excellent means of maximizing the benefit of charitable giving. For employees, finding such information is often as simple as contacting the human resources department.
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!
If you are interested in providing a matching gift to the Christ Child Society, but need some assistance, please contact our Director of Fundraising at 414-313-0232 who will gladly assist you in the endeavor.
