Aldersgate Partners & Giving Societies
The vast majority of financial support for the work of Aldersgate Homes and Collinswood comes from local churches and individual donors. Your gifts enable us to serve persons with developmental disabilities in a variety of endeavors. We very much appreciate your support.
“Society” is a good Methodist word. Within the early Methodist movement, “Societies” were formed. Charles and John Wesley formed a religious society dedicated to personal devotion and service to others. As Methodism spread in America, local societies were formed in order to support and encourage its members. It is fitting that our donors be listed in “societies” as recognition of their support of the ministry of Aldersgate Homes.
