Lifetime Giving Circles:

The Community House Foundation’s Lifetime Giving Circles recognizes The Community House’s most generous benefactors who have made lifetime gifts totaling $25,000 or more. We are privileged to have not just a few but dozens of friends and supporters who qualify for this honor through their extraordinary philanthropy.

Like our Founders, members of these Lifetime Giving Circles share the same vision, spirit, and strength in laying the bedrock for a greater Community House in Birmingham.

Annual Giving Societies:

Annual Giving Societies will bring distinction to The Community House and provide support for thousands of current visitors, children, and adults through exemplary annual gifts of $2,500 or more. Gifts from society members help achieve greater goals for the organization: providing quality programs, services, and educational opportunities for the community; ongoing restoration and care for its historic property; and advancement of the charity’s strategic plan.

  • The Merrill Society ($5,000+)

The Ruth Shain Legacy Society:

The Ruth Shain Legacy Society was created to honor those individuals who have pledged generous, lasting gifts to The Community House Foundation that extend beyond a lifetime. The Legacy Society will be composed of leadership, staff, and friends who support The Community House through estate gifts, life-income gifts, or the transfer of assets to The Community House Foundation.

Employee Circle of Excellence:

Honoring those individual employees that lead by example. These employees go above and beyond their commitment of hard work and dedication by donating their treasure to The Community House. These employees are not only supporting the organization they care so deeply about, they are also creating a workplace in which giving and service dwells.
