Since formation in 2005, the ChurchNet Foundation has faithfully served individuals in the Wake Forest, Youngsville, and Rolesville communities by providing supplemental assistance for people struggling to pay utility costs and prescription medicine costs. The ChurchNet Foundation was formally established as a 501(c) 3 organization under the Internal Revenue Service.
ChurchNet partners include a number of community churches, other nonprofits and concerned individuals. ChurchNet volunteers screen potential clients, often providing financial assistance one time in 12 months to approved individuals. Approved clients are expected to show their due diligence by assisting with payment of a portion of their outstanding bill before pledges are made. All pledges are made to the utility companies and no funds are made directly to individuals. The financial assistance provided clearly makes a difference to those in crisis situations and those struggling to meet monthly bills.
