Planned Giving

Thank you for your interest in making a planned gift to support Youth In Need. There are more than a million charities in the United States, so the fact that you are considering Youth In Need as a part of your estate plans is sincerely appreciated. Since 1974, our mission every day has been to build on the strengths of the children, youth and families we serve so they find safety, hope and success in life. That mission relies heavily on the generosity of people who, like us, believe in the power of potential.

Planned gifts can support our mission while also ensuring you meet your needs for your lifetime and those of your loved ones. These giving techniques are “planned” because with just a bit of easy planning, you, your family and Youth In Need all benefit.
