Support our Work

Because of you, children are given life, families are created, and hearts are healed

Giving Opportunities

Most of our support comes from caring individuals, our local churches, area businesses and organizations. We have several fundraising events and opportunities each year including our annual banquet. Contact us to learn more. 


Throughout the year, friends of the ministry can organize events like baby showers for our parenting clients, speaking events, and Baby Bottle Campaigns. It is our goal to have a Baby Bottle Campaign going in a different church or organization from Mother's Day to Father's Day each year.

Financial Support

We are a 501-c3 faith-based non-profit in the state of Vermont. The majority of our funding comes from the financial partnerships of individuals, churches, and businesses in our community. Your gift goes to helping women and couples learn the truth about their options, empowering them to choose life for their children. 

100% of donations are tax-deductible. Would you consider a one-time gift or become a monthly supporter?

Ways to give:

  • One-Time Gift – One-time gifts of any amount enable First Step to continue providing all our services at NO COST. We do not benefit from a clients pregnancy decision, nor do we receive government money. All our income comes from individuals, churches and businesses that believe in what we do.

  • Monthly Pledge – Monthly pledges are the backbone of financial support for First Step. Knowing what to expect each month helps us to budget, plan for the future and meet unexpected expenses. You can send a check each month, donate online, or set up automatic bill pay so you don’t even have to think about it.

  • Event Sponsorship – This is a great way for local businesses to support a cause while also receiving advertising for their business. Whether it’s underwriting our annual banquet or sponsoring one of our smaller events, your business will be thanked and acknowledged for your support and customers will be encouraged to patronize your business. For more information, contact our Executive Director,

  • Legacy Gift – We all think about how we will be remembered after we’re gone. We want to make a difference in the world that’s lasting and impactful. One way of doing that is with a Legacy Gift. By including First Step in your will, you will not only be remembered for your generosity, you will be helping future generations of unborn children have a chance at life. How great is that?
