Ways to Give

How to change lives in prison

Do you want to help support our work? We have many options for you to donate and help change the lives of our incarcerated brothers and sisters in Christ.

Make a one-time gift

The quickest way to support prisoners is to donate online through your credit card or bank account. You can also contact us to send a donation through the mail or over the phone. We’d love to talk with you!

Join the Matthew 25:36 Fellowship

As an individual or as a church or community group, you can join our community of monthly donors. Your monthly gift of $25.36 or more will remind you to fulfill the Lord’s command, “I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

Donate stock

We are able to accept donations in the form of stock, government (including municipal) debt, and corporate debt. Donate your stock here or call our Development Department for more information at (347) 868-6940.

Become a supporting parish

Your youth group, women’s or men’s group, or the entire parish can be a vital part of our ministry by either hosting an OCPM speaker or recommending that OCPM be included in the parish’s line item giving. Contact us for more information.

Corporate matching gifts

Many companies have charitable matching programs, in which they will match their employees’ charitable contributions. Contact your Human Resources department to find out if your employer will match your gift to OCPM.

Shop and support
