All gifts to the Be Rich campaign will be processed through Real Life Charities and distributed in full as promised to the partnerships mentioned in the services for the Be Rich series.

Conejo Valley Victims Fund

In light of the recent violence and tragedy in Thousand Oaks, we desire to take a portion of the money raised during Be Rich to bless the victim’s families. One truth we’ve discovered about God is that He is present in our pain. We are not alone in our suffering. As God provides comfort, strength and hope in ways only He can do, we seek to be present as well with these families. Funds raised will be directly sent to the Conejo Valley Victims Fund vccf.org.

Together We Mourn, Together We Stand.

Saving Innocence

Saving Innocence’s mission is to rescue and restore child victims of sex trafficking through strategic partnerships with local law enforcement, social service providers, and schools; all while mobilizing communities to prevent abuse and increase neighborhood safety.

BE RICH hopes to help provide critical resources needed to serve, empower, prevent and advocate.

GO Ministries

GO Ministries partners with local pastors and leaders across the Dominican Republic who desire to redeem people, renew their communities and restore creation. GO is currently embarking on a project that will bring amazing resources, educational training, leadership and community development to the whole country.

BE RICH hopes to help finish this project strong so we can see children, youth and families strengthened as they live in fullness.

Carousel Ranch

Carousel Ranch is dedicated to improving the lives of children and young adults with special needs. Through both their equestrian therapy and vocational training programs, they strive to create an atmosphere where every student can and will succeed…a place where therapy is disguised as fun. Volunteering consists of assisting an instructor in guided therapy sessions with kids, grooming horses, light office work, or assisting with special events.

BE RICH hopes to help provide the necessary resources to continue shaping these special young lives.

For the Troops

For The Troops is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing members of the American military with “We Care” packages containing basic necessities, goodies, games and—most of all—a show of support.

Since its inception in 2005, For The Troops has substantially grown in volunteers and donors, and has distributed more than 100,000 packages year-round to American troops who risk their lives overseas every day—far away from the comforts of home.

BE RICH hopes to provide some needed resources to help them continue sending care packages to our troops and supporting our brave heroes.

Children’s Hunger Fund

Children’s Hunger Fund’s mission is to deliver hope to suffering children by equipping local churches for gospel-centered mercy ministry. They require assistance with meal packages that are sent to families in need, locally and globally.

BE RICH hopes to pack 100 thousand meals. Your support will feed families in poverty and change lives forever.

Be Rich - Love

LOVE

Public servants are our community’s heroes. Let’s let them know that we appreciate them. Who doesn’t love the feeling of being loved? Let’s Be Rich and show our community’s public servants a little love.

Step 01

Choose a public servant. This is anyone who works to make our community a better place: teachers, firemen, police officers, postal workers, military, nurses and doctors, government employees.

Step 02

Purchase a small gift card. If you are able to, think about buying a gift card ($5-$10) that your public servant will love. (e.g. coffee, ice cream, donuts, retail stores)

Step 03

Write a thoughtful note of appreciation. Consider including #giveservelove in your message. If you’re comfortable doing so, give your email and/or return address. For sample thank you notes, click here.

Step 04

Mail or give your note. By the end of the week be sure to mail out or give your note to the public servant you’ve chosen.

Go Beyond

Think about sending another note in a few months and/or praying for your public servant.
