Financial Partnership

Lydia – A Beating Heart is a non-profit organization dependent entirely on the financial generosity of individuals, churches, and organizations. Ongoing partnership commitments enable Lydia to meet the needs of women and families in crisis. These could be monthly, quarterly, or annually. Special or one-time gifts are also gratefully accepted, as we often runs projects or events which incur additional costs.

An annual Baby Bottle Campaign is a super fun, popular way to support Lydia.  Many people enjoy this fundraiser, and kids especially love to participate! Each person or family fills an empty baby bottle with spare change or bills and turns it in as a donation when it is full or at the end of the designated time.

Current and future financial gifts will be used in a variety of ways, some of which are listed below:

  • Project “One woman at a time” – counseling
  • Project “Art Therapy”
  • Project “Adopt a family”
  • Project “Hope” – support groups
  • Marketing / Advertisement
  • Translation and printing of books and materials
  • Baby clothes and toiletry items for new moms
  • Administrative costs
