Make a Difference

donatenow.jpgThe Market Street Mission is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations to the Mission’s programs are tax-deductible.

We are an independent work and are not associated with any larger organization, church, or denomination and receive no direct government funds. The individuals we help are without any insurance coverage and we never charge for the services we offer in the community.

All support for the Mission’s programs comes from individuals, businesses, civic organizations and foundations in this local area. Last year, 22,200 individual donors made cash gift contributions to the Mission’s programs. In addition to cash gifts, we accept used cars, saleable clothing and household goods in good condition to be re-sold at our thrift store locations. The revenues from these sales are tax-deductible and are also used to fund our programs.

We are deeply grateful for these ministry partners - without them, this work would cease to exist.
