When you give to Bethel, you offer life-hanging healing and hope to kids in crisis. Here are 9 ways to lend a hand, provide a gift or get involved:
Make the Most Difference
Join Our “Heroes for Hope” club
To be a hero, simply set up a monthly recurring gift to Bethel. This provides sustainable and predictable funding for our children’s needs all year long, including residential housing, supervision by House Parents, meals, and therapeutic services.
Make a One-Time Gift
Not able to give monthly? Be a hero for a day, use our Online Giving portal to make a one-time gift. It is a safe and easy way to make a donation right from this website.
If this is your first time to give to Bethel, the Maclellan Foundation will match your gift and double your impact. Just use this link to make your first-time gift.
In a Hurry? Give Via Text in a Flash
Text Giving makes it easy to send a gift through text message. It is fast, safe and secure and there is no charge to your phone bill.
Make a Gift in Honor or Memory of Someone Special
It’s a great gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or any occasion. To do this, use our Online Giving portal and let us know who to notify about the gift and how to contact them.
Host a Food Drive
Food drives provide staples from peanut butter to paper towels and help us use our food budget for more fresh vegetables, fruits and meats.
Whether you shop at the Bethel Thrift Store or donate gently used items, you help support our ministry. The Bethel Thrift Store is located off campus at 5135 Hixson Pike, Hixson, TN.

IRA Rollovers – Certain individuals may transfer up to $100,000 from their IRA (or Roth IRA) account directly to a qualified charity, like Bethel, and will not have to include the funds in gross income therefore, avoiding income taxes on those funds. Read more in Bethel’s Smart Giving blog.
