Benefits of Circle of Hope Membership

Compassionate Commitment

As a monthly donor, you become an integral part of our community, showing your dedication to standing with survivors and supporting their journey towards recovery.

Exclusive Updates

Stay connected with our work and the impact of your donation through regular updates, inspiring stories of transformation, and firsthand accounts of the lives you’ve touched.

Recognition and Gratitude

We value your generosity and want to recognize your commitment. As a monthly donor, you’ll receive special acknowledgments, exclusive invitations to events, and opportunities to engage with our team and other like-minded supporters.

Cost Savings

More of your donation will go directly to our lifesaving care, as you will not receive the mailings and reminders to give that our annual donors receive.

Did you know?

Your money goes further when you donate monthly. Circle of Hope members receive fewer mailings and reminders to give, reducing the time and money we spend to raise your gift!

Why should I join the Circle of Hope?

Every gift to CVT makes a difference in our ability to provide lifesaving care to survivors of torture. Circle of Hope members help CVT work more efficiently by providing a stable source of reliable funding. With monthly gifts, you help decrease our administrative costs and ensure that more of your donation helps torture survivors directly. Your monthly contributions automatically renew your annual CVT support and, best of all they bring hope and healing to thousands of torture survivors worldwide.

How does CVT’s monthly giving work?

As a Circle of Hope member, your monthly gift — charged to your credit card or debited from your checking account — ensures reliable support for CVT and hassle-free giving for you. As a monthly donor, you will receive less mail, but you will get an annual statement in January with all of your donations for the previous year. In addition, we will keep you informed about our programs with our newsletters and annual report. You can change, suspend, or cancel your giving at any time.

Is your Web site secure to receive donations?

Yes, CVT uses a secure Web server to process donations.

What types of payment does CVT accept for monthly contributions?

As a Circle of Hope member, you can choose to make your monthly donation by credit card or have your gift transferred electronically from a checking account. All choices are efficient, safe, and easy to arrange.

How do I set up an electronic funds transfer?

An even more efficient way to deliver your monthly contributions is through automatic debits from your checking account. A single voided check is all it takes to begin that process. Send the voided check to the attention of: Attn: Development Center for Victims of Torture 2356 University Avenue West, Suite 430 St. Paul, MN 55114

What credit cards do you accept? Can I use a debit card?

We are able to process American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa cards. We do accept debit cards.

How do I change/update my contact information, credit card account, or donation amount?

To update your contact information, credit card account information, or donation amount, please contact Donor Services any time at [email protected] or 612.436.4808.

With a phone call or email message, you can change, suspend, or cancel your monthly giving. Please contact Donor Services any time at [email protected] or 612.436.4808 to make these changes.

How will I receive a statement of my donations?

In January you receive a statement of your Circle of Hope contributions for the previous year for tax purposes. If you sign up for our program online, you will receive an email receipt every month when the donation is processed. Otherwise, your bank or credit card statement can serve as your receipt.
