$0
per month
I want to offer grieving families and alternative to the standard funeral home fare. My business, called Humble Crossings, will offer grieving families a casket on a sliding scale. The cost will range from free to $1000.00, based on financial need. Anyone who chooses to be a patron will curtail costs for the economic hardships that families of lower income status will face. The high end covers materials, my time and overhead (taxes utilities and some marketing (advertising in some local newspapers and news letters.) I will never receive more than $1000.00 for a casket. Your patronage allows me to supplement the cost for families who would otherwise be unable to afford a casket or would be forced to go deep into debt. 
Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per month
0 patrons
Each patron's total pledged amounts will be recorded monthly and applied to the cost of a casket, which we will ship wherever and whenever you need.
Pledge $5 or more per month
0 patrons
A "Good Samaritan" certificate of appreciation will be sent out every time a maintenance pledge is received. (The maintenance pledge is the recurring pledge used to maintain the CASKET BANK.)
Goals
$0 of $5,000 per month
The goal of this account is to always have supplemental cash reserves so that we can offer a sliding scale for families in financial need. Our business, called Humble Crossings, will never charge more than the high end of $1000.00 for a casket (which will not draw on the bank at all) but will be able to offer discounted or free caskets to people who can show financial need. Once the goal is established, we will ask patrons to maintain the "CASKET BANK" with the amount they've pledged each time we draw money from it. Each casket will be posted, along with anonymous info about where it went.
