Donate: Year End Giving

Dear Buddy Fund Friends and Loyal Supporters,

We are thinking of you and wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Holiday Season! Together,
because of you, we are supporting and giving hope to over 87,000 at-risk, underserved youth right here in our community and we are so grateful for your support!

In 2023, we supported a record number of 150 non-profit youth organizations through your generous help.

As the end of the year rapidly approaches, we ask you to donate to our year-end campaign “The Power of Hope”. Please consider making a Year End contribution to help us reach our goal of $20,000.

No dollar amount is too small, as every dollar donated buys two dollars of new sports and recreation equipment for at–risk youth. We can accommodate gifts of cash, check, stock, Donor Advisor Funds and matching gifts.

Hope comes in many shapes and sizes for these underserved youth. Hope supports the emotional well-being of young people and helps uplift them to their potential. Hope helps a young person see that his/her life situation can improve, fuels their optimism and self-esteem, and inspires them to tackle what may seem impossible or carry them through difficult times. Words of Hope from a few organizations we supported this year.

There is no better way to instill Hope and make a positive impact than to help them build their life skills
through sports and recreational activities, which is needed more than ever today.

Please watch the video about the positive impact that each of YOU continue to make!

We wish you good health, peace and safety throughout this Holiday Season and in the New Year!
