You can fundraise for YouthCare!

Join us in the fight to end youth homelessness

Last year, there were over one thousand unaccompanied youth and young adults experiencing homelessness in King County.

None of them grew up wanting to be homeless.

YouthCare works to end youth homelessness and to ensure that young people are valued for who they are and empowered to achieve their potential.


We envision a community where no young person experiences homelessness, all young people have the opportunity to thrive, and the systems that oppress them are dismantled.

Together, we can help youth experiencing homelessness gain stability and thrive.

Ready to Fundraise to Support Homeless Youth?

Hosting your own virtual fundraiser on behalf of YouthCare is a meaningful way to celebrate a milestone, engage your workplace in a cause that is important to you, share your passions with your friends and family, and make a lasting difference in the lives of homeless youth.

You have the power to help young people in our community realize their potential and achieve their dreams. When you fundraise for YouthCare, you become a donor, volunteer, and advocate for young people experiencing homelessness in our community. Launch your own virtual fundraiser today!

Fundraising steps

Choose your fundraiser type below to get started!

Host a survival drive fundraiser

Right now, young people experiencing homelessness are up against a pandemic and increasingly colder, harsher weather. You can help youth find safety and warmth by hosting a fundraiser to support youth during the cold and rainy months!  

Host a campaign or challenge

Have an idea? You can start with a blank slate and fundraise your way! Your options are limited only by your resourcefulness and imagination—the possibilities are endless!

Host your own virtual event or celebration

Hosting a benefit on behalf of YouthCare is a great way to support our services. You can donate proceeds or gifts from events like corporate auctions, birthdays, and weddings. Or get creative and host a bake sale, car wash, or karaoke party!

Host a virtual fundraiser to honor a loved one

If you’ve lost someone you care deeply about, a tribute fund can be a meaningful way to honor their memory. Create a tribute page to commemorate a loved one and make a lasting impact in their name.
