Innovative Ways to Give Financially

Young Life considers its donors among the most generous people in the world. They give abundantly of their resources in order to reach kids with the Gospel of Jesus Christ — most often without ever seeing the fruit of their giving. For this reason, Young Life continually seeks ways to make giving easier for everyone desiring to be a part of this life-changing ministry.

Although Young Life does not accept “in kind” gifts at this time (contributions of equipment, supplies or other property as distinct from monetary grants), it is an area that is being considered as a giving option in the future. There are, however, other creative ways to benefit your local Young Life area. Here are just a few examples:

  • An innovative donor in Dallas sold a ’57 Chevy on eBay to benefit his local area.
  • A group of college students in Colorado collected donations for a garage sale and gave all the proceeds for camp scholarships (campership).
  • A young family in Oregon hosted a bake sale to benefit the nearby Young Life camp.

The possibilities are limitless. If you have questions about the suitability of your gift, contact your local area office or Mission Assistance at the Young Life Service Center toll free at (877) 438-9572.
