Recurring Giving

Make a bigger impact by setting up automatic monthly installments to spread your contribution over our entire fiscal year. For example, a monthly recurring gift of $25 makes a $300 impact over the entire year. Set up a recurring gift using our online giving form, call The Clark Fund at 508-793-7331, or email
