The vision of iHope is to intentionally partner with and support our local churches, pastors, and ministries. Line item giving from your church covers our recurring costs like supplies, insurance, and accounting, so that we can keep client fees low.
All donations are welcome, and are used to keep clients’ fees low: One-time, Monthly, or Annual Gifts.
Three levels of Church Partnership have been developed that include a “thank you” back of counseling credits for your church or ministry to use as you wish. Each credit is worth $60, the iHope fee for a counseling session with a fully licensed professional.
Level 1 $800 – $1,999 per year (5 credits – that’s $300!)
Level 2 $2,000 – $3,499 per year (9 credits – that’s $540!)
Level 3 $3,500 – $5,000 per year (12 credits – that’s $720!)
Counseling credits can be set aside for your own church members – the pastor or church secretary would simply fill out the referral form or call us to let us know a new client will be using counseling credits. They can be used to pay for a whole session or for part of a session. (Or, your church may decide to donate the counseling credits back to iHope, where we will set them into a scholarship fund for community members or lower-income churches to use those credits for their counseling needs.)
