Your tax-deductible gift to Youth Homes means that a child will have a safe place to live, a warm bed to sleep in, healthy food to eat, supervision by caring adults, therapy to overcome past traumas and maybe most importantly, time to act like a kid. Whether you donate online or send us a check, you have the option of directing your gift where you’d like it to go:
These donations allow us to subsidize public funding while providing the quality care and relationships necessary to help kids in Youth Homes. A gift to this fund directly supports our mission by paying for necessary expenses such as food, house costs and staffing.
This fund helps us meet some of our kids’ basic needs, like new clothing, and also provides “extras” for our youth such as birthday presents, school pictures, music lessons or athletic fees and equipment. This fund also provides a wide range of group activities, such as snowboarding, whitewater rafting or a trip to Glacier National Park.
Honor and memorial gifts allow you to celebrate a special person or event, or express compassion for someone’s loss – while helping children in need. When you make an honor or memorial gift, please include the name of the person you are recognizing with your donation and their address so we can notify the person or his/her family of your generosity. Please check “I would like to dedicate this donation to someone” on the online form to make a dedication gift.
Gifts to our endowment are placed in irrevocable trusts that will live on in perpetuity to help children at Youth Homes. The interest generated helps enhance staffing to meet needs of the children, make grants for graduates to pursue advanced education and address additional, needed services for youth and their families.
