Your Support is Crucial

Donors are vital to Young Life at the local area and regional levels. Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget and part of a region's budget. Your donation helps areas hire and train staff and provide essential administrative support to the area. Your contributions also support operating expenses such as salaries and other ministry costs and can help send kids to Young Life camps.

Our fiscal year runs from October through September. Our budget for the current Fiscal Year is $250,000. To reach this budget we ask each staff member to fundraise from personal friends and family (many people are not members of our community). Ryan Elders is asked to raise $20,000, Ben Post is asked to raise $20,000, Erin Iafrate is asked to raise $20,000, and Britt Sherman is asked to raise $5,000. The other portion of our budget needs to come from this community. Currently we have $4,500​ per month coming in for a total of $54,000 for the year. Please consider becoming a monthly donor or giving a one time gift.
