Clients give CFI high marks!

CFI is pleased to announce that clients again gave our staff and services high marks -- and would recommend us to their friends or family in need of care.

Here are the responses to the questions we asked them in our most recent second-quarter 2022 results:

  1. Staff respects me: 93%
  2. I have a say in my care or service: 91%
  3. I trust CFI to help me: 90%
  4. The care of service I receive improved my life: 90%
  5. I would refer a friend in need of help: 90%

Those remarkable results speak to the high-quality and dedicated talent at CFI, as do some of the responses clients or their parent or guardian shared with us:

Children's Services client/guardian:  We LOVE you guys and are so thankful that our child gets to come every day. Thank you to everyone for helping us since our child got out of the hospital. We are so thankful for you all!!!!

Behavioral Health Crisis Resource Center: Very Helpful. Helped me get back on my feet after living overseas for many years, having health and stress related issues, helping me through those within a safe setting.

Every program received similar praise. Learn more about our quality driven agency here.

Give through a donor-advised fund

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is one option when making charitable decisions and one that can help create a lasting legacy for you and your family. Whether your DAF has been established with a national entity, or with a more locally based wealth management firm or community foundation as the sponsoring organization, please consider making the MCFI Foundation a beneficiary of your DAF.

Let your sponsoring organization know of your intent and charitable goal. The MCFI Foundation is a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the EIN 47-2334925. Disbursements from a DAF can be made payable to:

MCFI Foundation

c/o Kasey Chard

2020 W. Wells Street

Milwaukee, WI 53233

If you have an existing DAF, consider an investment in healthy and hopeful communities with the MCFI Foundation as a beneficiary of your gift! As always, please consult your personal tax advisor for additional information on your charitable giving goals and DAF disbursements.
