As individuals age, COC often finds itself self-funding the extra staff and services they need. As such, fundraising is necessary to ensure that COC has the resources we need to properly serve each person we support. COC is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization providing support to people with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities. You can make a monetary donation through PayPal by clicking the "Donate" button below or send your donation directly to:
Memorial funds are used to benefit the men and women affiliated with COC for such things as hearing aids, extensive dental work, funeral costs, and much more. The COC Board of Directors establishes the appropriate use of memorial funds and members of the Memorial Committee approve allocations.
Donate Your Used Car to Charity Motors
Lower Your Taxes and Provide a Donation to COC!
COC participates in the Charity Motors Car Designation Program. If you donate a car you no longer use or need, you can receive a tax deduction and designate COC as the recipient of the proceeds from the sale of the car. If you are interested in participating in this program, call Charity Motors at (313)255-1000, or visit their website.
Choose the Plymouth United Way!
If you donate to United Way, please choose the Plymouth Community United Way (PCUW). You can designate COC, whether you make a pledge or donate directly. COC is one of more than forty agencies that receives funds from PCUW. COC relies heavily on this contribution, so your donation to PCUW is another way you can support COC. If you are interested in making a donation to Plymouth Community United Way, visit their site.
Shop at Amazon, Kroger and iGive.com
Each year we receive contributions as a result of members, families and friends of COC who shop at Kroger using their Community Rewards Program and Amazon using amazon smile. The set-up and procedures vary slightly, but each provides a regular donation to COC based on a portion of the purchase sales. If you need assistance, contact the COC office at (734) 422-1020 for guidance on how to register and donate with no cost to you.
Please use the following link to sign up: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/38-3143428. If you have an amazon account sign in with that e-mail and password, otherwise you will have to create an account.
Every time you shop you will have to go to smile.amazon in order for COC to receive any donations. You can save that page to make it easier for yourself. Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total bill to COC on a quarterly basis.
Kroger shoppers must have a Kroger Plus card and enroll in the Kroger Community Rewards Program to ensure that COC receives their donation. To confirm your contribution, Community Opportunity Center will be printed at the bottom of your receipt.
