Make a gift to YouthCare today!
Your contribution provides the foundation of family for young people experiencing homelessness. You help them find housing, go to school, get a job, achieve long-term stability, and reach their dreams. YouthCare’s mission is to end youth homelessness and to ensure that young people are valued for who they are and empowered to achieve their potential. By ending homelessness for young people, we can interrupt the pipeline to chronic homelessness and transform our communities!

  • Workplace and matching gifts. You can double or even triple the impact of your gift to YouthCare with workplace and matching gift programs. Contact your employer’s human resources office to find out if you can support YouthCare via payroll deduction or your workplace giving campaign. Your company may also match your cash donations or volunteer hours: ask your employer, or check our list of companies with matching gift programs.

  • Legacy giving. Legacy giving enables you to contribute significantly to the work that is most meaningful to you and that memorializes your values. Proper planning can ensure your wishes are fulfilled, potentially lower your estate tax, and create powerful change for homeless youth. There are many ways to leave a legacy and support YouthCare through your estate:
    • Name YouthCare as a beneficiary in your will.
    • Make YouthCare a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, IRA, 401(k) or 403(b).
    • Name YouthCare as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust.
    • If you’ve already included YouthCare in your estate plans, let us know! Especially if you are designating your gift to a specific program, sharing your wishes in advance will help us honor your plans for our future.

    Your will, trust, or beneficiary designation can be updated with the following information:
    Legal name: YouthCare
    Federal tax ID number: 91-0917079
    Address: P.O. Box 15258, Seattle, WA 98115

  • In-Kind donation. Crucial to our collective movement to help young people rise above homelessness is security in essential needs, and empowerment to make their own decisions. Donating needed items and gift cards(opens in new window) is the perfect solution to help young people in these ways.

Thank you for supporting YouthCare. If you have questions regarding your financial gift, please contact our Fund Development team at For questions regarding in-kind giving or needed items, please contact us at
