How You Can Help

Every contribution, regardless of the gift level, is critically important to our organization's work with abused and neglected children. By contributing a gift, you enable Boys Town California to create and expand our programs and services that help abused and neglected youth build better lives for themselves. Please contact Christina Garkovich, Boys Town California Development Director, at 714-558-0303 ext. 150 or if you have any questions.

Individual Giving

One-Time Gift

Gifts of any amount are appreciated and will be used wisely to provide programs and services that offer hope and opportunity to children and families in California.

Matching Gifts

There are many companies that will match the charitable contributions of their employees. You can double the impact of your generosity by utilizing your company's matching gift program. Visit your human resources office and ask for a matching gift form. Matching gift revenue makes a big difference.

Monthly Donor Programs

Every contribution, regardless of gift level, is significant to the work of Boys Town California. Monthly gifts in any amount are critical to our efforts to help abused and neglected children in our community.

Planned Giving

The goal of many families is to plan their estate to benefit both family and Boys Town California. Almost anything of value can be a charitable gift. The most common gifts are cash and appreciated publicly traded securities. We also receive gifts of real estate, personal property (such as jewelry and collectible items) and intangible personal property (such as a paid up life insurance policy or a royalty).

Corporate Partnerships

Boys Town California welcomes the support of businesses and corporations of all sizes. Gifts can be designated to fund a specific program, event or need, according to the interests and priorities of your company.

Underwrite/Sponsor a Fundraising Event

Sponsor our annual fundraising event, Flight of Hope Gala. You'll receive recognition and benefits according to the sponsorship level.

Underwrite/Sponsor a Youth Event

We hold special programs, events and workshops for our youth throughout the year.

Holiday Giving

Many companies choose to give to Boys Town California during the holidays in lieu of traditional giving. For example, some companies make a donation to Boys Town California rather than purchase gifts for vendors or clients. Boys Town California will send an acknowledgment to your vendors and clients letting them know that a gift has been made to help change the life of a child.
