Ways to Give


We deeply appreciate any and all gifts, no matter how small. You can always make an easy donation here online, but there are other ways to support us as well. Here are several ways to give:

  • Online: You may donate online with a credit/debit card or bank account via the panel on the right. You can even set up an automatic monthly donation.

  • Checks/Cash: You may mail or bring by checks for donations. Checks should be made out to "Community Outreach Ministries of Bolivar."  Cash should be brought by our offices (not mailed). You can drop off donations at our offices Tuesday through Saturday by asking for either the Executive Director or Director of Finance. Our offices are located at 320 S. Market St., Bolivar, MO 65613 (behind the fire department).

  • Cryptocurrency: Yes! You can donate cryptocurrency to COM. COM partners with Crypto For Charity to facilitate crypto transactions. Just visit, select "Community Outreach Ministries" as your nonprofit of choice, select your currency and amount, and that's about it. Crypto for Charity handles all the complicated pieces and then forwards your donation to COM.

  • Facebook: Create a Facebook fundraiser to use your circle of influence for good. Simply go to the fundraising page at to to create your own Facebook fundraiser for us.

  • Estate Giving: Leaving a gift to COM in your will is a great way to leave a legacy in your community. If you are interested in this, please give us a call beforehand so we can discuss with you the most sustainable and beneficial ways in which part of your estate can help our mission.

  • Endowment Fund: COM has an endowment fund through Community Foundation of the Ozarks. The interest from this fund helps fund our everyday operational expenses. If you have a gift you would like to put toward this fund, you may contact Community Foundation of the Ozarks or give by credit card by clicking here! If you plan on writing COM into part of your will, this is a great way to do it.

  • Items/Property: We accept donations of household items and furniture for use in our thrift store Tuesday through Saturday from 10-12. To learn more about giving to the thrift store, click here. For larger gifts, such as vehicles or real estate, please call us at 417-326-2769.

  • Amazon Smile: Do you shop on Amazon? Make sure to shop at to have Amazon make a donation to COM with every purchase!

If you choose to give via the "Salvation Army" be sure to type the designation Polk County in the box under the donation amounts if you want that money to be used by us as a local extension unit. Please note, donations given to the Salvation Army rather than to Community Outreach Ministries can only be used for Salvation Army benevolence programs at COM, not food pantry or other COM programs.


COM is only able to provide these services to the community with YOUR help. Donate today to help the families in our community!
