How Can I Help?

December 16, 2015

Jacksonville College needs your help. When people ask, “How can I help?” I respond, “Let me count the ways.”

  1. Pray for Jacksonville College.
    “. . . not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). Prayer is our greatest need.

  2. Promote Jacksonville College.
    Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue . . .” There are a few who use their tongues to spread negative, hurtful words about Jacksonville College. JC needs you to say good words. Our best recruitment tool is still word of mouth. Say a good word today to someone about Jacksonville College.

  3. Provide resources to Jacksonville College.
    “. . . God loveth a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7). How can you give? Let me count the ways.

    1. Volunteer your time and skills. We always have projects that need attention at Jacksonville College. We need office help stuffing envelopes, entering data, and so forth. We need maintenance help painting, doing carpentry work, weeding flower beds, etc.

    2. Give financially.

      1. Contribute monthly. We thank God for our faithful monthly contributions from churches, associations, and individuals. This money helps keep the lights on.

      2. Donate during our yearly capital fundraising appeals.

        1. Jaguar Day Across Texas in May. This special offering helps us make it through the lean summer months. The offering also helps with special projects like painting Collins Hall, a women’s residence hall.

        2. End of Year appeal. This special offering helps us with various projects and to end the year in good financial shape.

      3. Consider planned and estate giving. Remember Jacksonville College in your will. This can be in the form of insurance policies, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and assets of land and property.

      4. Provide for scholarships. The majority of our students are able to attend Jacksonville College because of scholarships. Therefore, we need numerous contributors to provide the funds annually for these scholarships.  Without contributions each year, these scholarships cannot be adequately funded.  

      5. Shop with Amazon Smile. Go to smile.amazon.com and sign into your account or create one. Select Jacksonville College as your charitable organization. At check-out, Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% of your purchase to Jacksonville College. This will not cost you extra.

      6. Recycle e-waste. Drop off electronic items (cell phones, ink cartridges, etc.) that do not work, and Jacksonville College can earn cash.

      7. Switch to Stream Energy. This will not cost you extra and will help Jacksonville College.

You can donate:

  1. Electronically. Go to our website at www.jacksonville-college.edu, and click on “Ways to Help” under the “About” tab. Then click on the purple “Donate Now” button on the left side of the page.

  2. By mail. Send checks to Jacksonville College, 105 B.J. Albritton Drive, Jacksonville, TX 75766.
