Leadership Giving

Have a Major Impact through Leadership Giving

Many concerned citizens have joined YouthCare’s mission through an annual contribution of $1,000 or more. Every contribution helps further the cause, but major gifts are key to our ability to allocate and reallocate resources in the ongoing struggle to meet current and long-term needs — especially unrestricted gifts, although gifts can be designated to any of our programs.

Donations at any level may be made in full or put on monthly and other schedules. Below is a list of benefits associated with various levels of leadership giving. YouthCare is pleased to acknowledge the major donors who do so much to ensure the stability and growth of our organization; donations may also be made anonymously or in honor of others. If you're interested in making a gift through your donor advised fund, please contact Gabbi Sawrey at (206) 204-1403 or gabbi.sawrey@youthcare.org.

Pillars of YouthCare

As you decide how to bestow your financial legacy, we ask you to remember these young people who need so much and have received so little. Unfortunately, the need will not disappear. Down the road, there will still be homeless children and young adults who never deserved the cards they were dealt.

As they prepare for life, help prepare for their future. Please consider including a donation to YouthCare in your will.

For more information about leadership or legacy giving, please contact us at info@youthcare.org or (206) 204-1403.
