Why We Give

The Annual Fund

People give gifts to Calumet so that the next generation can know that God’s love is for all people of all times and places. God’s love is for you!

Were it not for the many generous gifts from people who value this ministry, Calumet could not do God's work. Thank you for your partnership in ministry! Calumet is a 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible to the extent tax law allows.

The Memorial Gifts

Honor someone's memory with a memorial gift.

Love never ends. And a gift to Calumet in someone's memory helps Calumet share God's unending love with a whole new generation.

We remember these saints who died recently and whose respective obituaries listed Calumet to receive memorial gifts. If you would like to begin your own planning and want information on how this works (including language for an obituary), reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots.
