Individuals and Organizations. Over 16,400 individuals, churches, foundations, businesses, and other groups have given money, goods, or volunteer service since our inception. Christ House would not be able to continue its mission without people from all around the country (and seven foreign countries) who provide their prayers and support.
Partners and Associate Partners. In addition to grants, it takes approximately $3,000 per day to provide medical care and case management services for all of the patients at Christ House. The Christ House Partner Program recognizes donors who give $3,000 or more in a year to fill this urgent need.
Christ House Associate Partners are recognized for gifts between $1,500 and $2,999 per year. Your generosity will be acknowledged with:
- Your choice of a Remembrance Day
- A certificate displayed at the entrance of Christ House
- A special letter describing Christ House events on the Remembrance Day you choose
Partners and Associates are also invited to visit Christ House on their day (or at any other time) to see our facility, meet patients and staff, and join us for a meal. Please call Sarah Katz in our Development Office at (202) 328-1100 to schedule your visit.
Local and Federal Governments. Approximately one-third of the annual Christ House operating budget is underwritten by grants from the Federal government and the District of Columbia. The majority of these grants are administered by the Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness and the District of Columbia Department of Health, HIV-AIDS, Hepatitis, STD and TB Administration.
United Way of the National Capital Area (UWNCA #8385). The United Way of the National Capital Area coordinates one of the largest annual fundraising campaigns in the country.

Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA #34256). The Combined Federal Campaign is the only authorized workplace charitable giving drive for employees in the Federal workplace. CFCNCA is the local campaign for Federal employees in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Through the contributions of nearly 150,000 civilian and military Federal employees, CFCNCA generated more than $62.7 million in pledges for participating local, national, and international charities last year. To support Christ House through the Combined Federal Campaign, please designate #34256 as your beneficiary.

The Advance of the United Methodist Church (#381215). The Advance of the United Methodist Church enables people to support projects and missionaries throughout the world. Individuals and congregations can make donations through The Advance in much the same way as people do through United Way or the CFC. The Advance ensures 100% of each gift reaches its intended mission or ministry, meaning that all overhead and operating costs are borne by the church, not the outreach. To support Christ House through The Advance of the United Methodist Church, please designate #381215 as your beneficiary. For more information about The Advance, talk to your church treasurer, contact our development office, or visit their website.
