Make a Monthly Pledge to The Night Ministry and Become a Beacon of Hope Today!

Becoming a part of The Night Ministry’s Beacon of Hope Monthly Giving Program enables us to plan ahead, access an immediate and continuous funding stream for our vital programs and services, and focus on meeting the most pressing needs of the adults and youth we serve. You can choose to contribute in any amount of your choice.

Become a Beacon of Hope by clicking here. Please make sure to select that you would like your donation to recur.

Your monthly donation is both effective and convenient for you:

Effective — your monthly donation provides: 

  • A steady and predictable source of income
  • Income acquired at a cost substantially below that permitted by other types of fundraising methods
  • Income that will provide weeks, months and years of outreach, shelter, medical care, and food to homeless and at-risk youth who are in desperate need

Convenient — your monthly donation can be established:

  • By automatic charge on your credit card
  • Or with monthly reminders for payment by check
  • And you can change the amount of your pledge or the timing of your payments at any time

Your monthly donation works hard:

  • $10 a month (33¢ per day) provides five youth with a hot breakfast at our emergency overnight youth shelter
  • $20 a month (66¢ per day) provides one hour of case management services for a youth
  • $25 a month (82¢ per day) provides a homeless or at-risk youth with a 7-day CTA pass to get to work and school
  • $50 a month ($1.64 per day) provides one night of fuel for our Health Outreach Bus to travel to three underserved neighborhoods
  • $75 a month ($2.50 per day) allows you to pay for treatment for eight people suffering from colds and flu on our Health Outreach Bus
  • $100 a month ($3.33 per day) provides two youth with a two night stay at our emergency overnight shelter, The Crib
  • $250 a month ($8.22 per day) provides eight hours of nursing services from our Health Outreach Bus, such as: rapid HIV testing, diabetes and pre-diabetes screening, and treatment of hypertension and chronic respiratory illness

As a monthly supporter, you receive the following benefits:

  • Limited mailings beyond your monthly statement
  • An annual statement to assist in your tax preparation
  • Set it up once and know you are making a difference throughout the year
  • A designated staff member who can handle any questions you may have
  • The ability to increase, decrease or cancel your pledge whenever you wish
  • Stay Informed – received insider updates about our programs and invitations to exclusive events
  • Knowing you are part of a select group of caring individuals who are helping transform the lives of homeless and at-risk adults and youth in Chicago
  • Your monthly gift works hard as it provides needed and continuous funding where we need it most
  • The confidence of knowing you are making a safe and secure gift each month
  • Think Green! By becoming a Beacon of Hope you help save time, money, and valuable resources
