Dear Buddy Fund Friends and Supporters,
We hope you are staying healthy. We understand these are challenging times both personally and professionally and appreciate your continued support. Please know that each of you are an important part of our efforts to make a bigger difference in changing the lives of the underserved at-risk youth in the community.
As we narrow in on closing out the year with our commitment to supporting a record number of 73 nonprofit youth organizations (46% increase from 2019) that serve 25,000 +at-risk underserved youth, we ask you to join in and help us reach our goal of $20,000 by donating to our Year End Giving “Give Hope” Campaign. Is it possible for you to support us today with a Year End contribution? Please give what you can, no dollar amount is too small, as every dollar buys new sports equipment and supplies for at–risk kids.

For over 58 years, the Buddy Fund has cared for our community by serving the at-risk underserved youth through local nonprofit youth-focused organizations thanks to your generous donations. Unfortunately there will always be a need for what we do. Our goal is to work together, work smarter and partner with community organizations and individuals so that we can continue making a significant impact in the lives of youth.
There is no better way to have such a positive impactful effect on the youth than to get them engaged in life skills building, sports and recreational programs.
Due to long standing relationship with our supply vendors, we are able to double the impact of your donation by our purchasing power to buy sports equipment at cost.
Consistent with our history, we are making a bigger difference and changing the lives of at-risk youth. Take a look at the video about the impact that each of YOU continue to make! https://youtu.be/OBpvtY2KNYQ

Due to the COVID 19 charitable limits are temporarily suspended and are not subject to the normal 60% limit. https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/charitable-organizations/charitable-contribution-deductions
