Plan A Gift to Help the Agency In the Future
Give a Monetary Contribution To Help Our Teens Today
- Leave RYF as one of several beneficiaries or as primary beneficiary when you purchase a life insurance policy. There may be tax benefits for you.
- Leave a bequest to the troubled teens at the Rutledge Youth Foundation in your will. This will insure future services for our teens.
- Set up a "Charitable Remainder Trust" for many tax advantages to you and benefits for our teens. Call the office for more details.
- We suggest a "special" gift of $1 for each child in our program. An average daily caseload is 120. Of course, any amount is greatly appreciated.
- Give a memorial gift as a special tribute to a beloved family member, friend or pet.
- For $1,000, you, your business or civic group can "adopt" a teen and at RYF you can make a big difference in the life of a child! Call the RYF office for details about the program.
Our teens need many household items as they move into independent living. In-Kind contributions can be delivered to our office at 931 N. Rutledge in Springfield weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Examples include: Linens,
Towels, Dressers, Beds, Fans, Electronic Equipment (VCR, TV, DVD players), Tables,
Chairs, End-tables, Mirrors, Dishes, Hygiene Items
Our house parents will help you when you arrive.
We are always looking for assistance with our fundraisers. The annual Nightcrawler 5K in particular is very labor intensive. Contact the office if you have an interest in volunteering.
Our older youth are in need of entry-level employment and vocational skill development. Please call if you have opportunities available.
Please contact us for more information.
