Giving Options

Personal Development Center’s funding source is primarily grants. Our other source comes from donations and contributions. We always appreciate donations and contributions that help defray costs incurred by the agency to assist victims of violence.

Charitable Money Market Account (CMMA)

Open a CMMA at Forward Financial Bank, specify Personal Development Center as your charitable organization, and at the end of the year, the bank will donate .25% of your average balance to us. This money will help your friends and neighbors here in our community.

Cell Phones

PDC Orenda Center uses cell phones that are in good working condition as a safety plan for victims of domestic violence. The cellular phones are programmed to dial 911. Older or non-working phones are shipped to a company that recycles them and in return, the company gives a financial contribution.

Please drop off cell phones at our Marshfield location.

Ink Cartridges

Cartridges are collected and shipped to a company that recycles them and in return, the company gives a financial contribution.

Please drop off ink cartridges at our Marshfield location. Pick up may be arranged for large quantities of ink cartridges. Please contact us to make arrangements.

Monetary Donations

Our Community Giving Tree, designed by Welding Artist Greg Fleischmann, was established so that community members can invest in safety, healing and hope and create a safer community for all of us. Each branch represents the individuals in our community that make up the brilliant beauty of the Marshfield area, and the strength of our community depends on each community member. It is our responsibility to provide support, safety and hope for those branches that need our strength so they can in turn help others in their time of need. The giving levels and recognition for your commitment and support are listed below. Together we can create a safe, peaceful community.
