Become a Sustaining Partner
Each morning when I go to the Post Office, I receive letters and gifts from friends who support our mission on a monthly basis. We want to acknowledge your support so we are creating the Good News Outreach “Sustaining Partners Society.”
Sustaining Partners are those who support our mission on a recurring monthly basis. Recurring gifts enable us to plan for and meet our operational budget to carry out our vital mission. Together we feed the hungry, support seniors, help returning citizens, and keep families from homelessness. None of this happens without your investment!
Please consider becoming a member of the “Sustaining Partner Society”. Simply navigate to , select the red Donate button, choose “Recurring Donation” and designate a monthly amount that suits your budget”. Giving on-line is easy safe, and secure! You may also give by mail at P.O. Box 3304, Tallahassee, FL 32315-3304.
Your gift, regardless of the amount, helps us carry out our mission. If you want to see first-hand how you are helping change lives in Tallahassee please contact me to schedule a tour.
Thank you for your prayers, gifts, and encouragement!

Recurring gifts: You can set up monthly/quarterly/annually recurring gifts with credit or debit cards. Recurring gifts are a great way to provide predictable revenue to help GNO sustain our programs.
Special events: You can sponsor and participate in GNO’s signature event – the annual Prayer Breakfast. Volunteer to organize additional events.
Become a Center of Influence: You have a unique sphere of influence including friends, family colleagues, civic organizations, churches and other contacts. Share the Good News with them. Like us on Facebook. Share posts. Introduce your friends to Good News and let them know tours of the compelling work we do are available.
Grants and matching gifts: You may know of grant sources and company matches through your business, trade or professional organizations. Let us know how to apply for such grants and take advantage of opportunities to get a match for your gift.
Naming opportunities: You have the opportunity to name or sponsor identified areas of GNO’s office and/or facilities. For example, sponsoring one of the Maryland Oaks homes. You can honor a family member or friend through a named gift.
In-kind gifts: You can provide a non-cash gift to GNO. All in-kind gifts are documented on an in-kind gift form and you, the donor, determine their value.
Giving societies: GNO offers multiple strategies of giving and multiple ways to recognize its donors through Giving Societies. Good News will be announcing Giving Societies in the near future.
Planned gifts: Provide a lasting legacy by making a gift to GNO in your estate plan or other deferred giving instrument – e.g. wills, living trusts, insurance, IRA, etc.
Endowments: Donors can establish legacy gifts in perpetuity through endowments (permanently restricted principal) with earnings to support the mission of GNO or aligned specifically within GNO. These gifts require a minimum gift amount in order to be a named endowment, with an option for an initial deposit and time frame for fulfilment.
