Ways to DONATE
Agape Center Lynchburg relies on donations from the community. We are 100% volunteer-run and we strive to keep our costs low. Your donation will help Agape serve individuals and families in need.
There are many ways you can support Agape. Please read below which method would best suit you.
DIRECT DONATIONS: Can be made online via PayPal or by personal check as a one-time gift or a monthly recurring gift.
EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFTS: speak to your employer to see if they have a matching program and your gift instantly doubles!
HONOR / MEMORIAL DONATIONS: you may give in honor of someone's birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion. Donations may also be given in memory of a loved one who has passed away in lieu of flowers sent to the family. Agape will send a note informing the individual or family of either gift.
