Bridge Builders – Pledge Your Support to Friendly House

A Bridge Builder pledge  is a donation made in scheduled payments over three years at the $500 – $10,000 level or above.  Pledges allow a supporter the ability to make a more significant commitment than they might otherwise make in a one-time donation and spread payments over any period of time of their choice.  Bridge Builders not only support our mission, but they allow Friendly House to plan for the future.  $42 a month is all it takes to start supporting Friendly House in this essential way.

Becoming a Bridge Builder is simple.  If you would like to have your pledge charged to your credit or debit card click on the “Donate Now” button to go to the Donation page.  Complete the information on the page, including the amount of the periodic payment, the frequency of the payment and the number of payments.  Enter your card information and submit the pledge.  We will take care of the rest, including sending notifications when your payments are made.

If you would like to make a pledge to pay by check or other method, or you have questions about becoming a Bridge Builder please email with the subject line “Bridge Builder” in your message and we can set up your pledge in a way that suits you best.
