With the ever increasing needs of our community and the desire to expand the ministry of the shelter program, revenues from the Thrift Shop are not sufficient.

Any support you can give will help the needy of Northern Tulare and Southern Fresno County areas. Our newsletters list our current needs.

We can accept donations at the shelter using your VISA, Mastercard, or Discover Card.  When you call (559)591-1241 or come by the shelter, our friendly staff will fill out a form and your donation will be entered on our next business day.

We also accept online donations. You can donate to us directly through PayPal, using your choice of credit cards or PayPal’s secure services. (When you click on this link, note the word “Continue” next to the image of credit cards). You can choose to make your donation one-time, or to support Open Gate Ministries on a certain date each month on a recurring basis. Credit Card Badges

Be sure to keep a copy of your receipt. Open Gate Ministries, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. Your gift is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Please join our $20.00 Club. We seek individuals, churches, and businesses willing to donate $20 (or more) a month to help us care for the needy of our surrounding area by providing food, clothing and temporary housing. The number of people coming to us for help continues to increase each month, and our expenses also continue to increase, placing an extra burden upon our already stretched budget.


Our goal is to enroll 20% of Dinuba’s population of 24,000 in monthly pledges to support Open Gate’s Mission. Total response goal is 2,400.


For each $20.00 you pledge monthly, it will count as one response. (Example if you pledge $40.00, it will count as 2 responses; $60.00 = 3 responses and so on). How much can you help each month?

Please help your neighborhood Mission.
