Where Your Donation Goes

Cookeville Rescue Mission receives donations from members of the community, churches, and businesses. We do not receive any government funding. In addition to financial contributions, Cookeville Rescue Mission also receives non-perishable food items that are used in-house, as well as distributed to less fortunate members of the community and other organizations in need.

Sources of Revenue

Through the use of direct mail, as well as community events, Cookeville Rescue Mission generates capital to fund daily operations as well as future expansions. Cookeville Rescue Mission strives to make every donation reach its full potential by reducing costs associated with operations and by reducing waste in food service, thus ensuring financial sustainability for years to come.
