Ways of Making a Gift
Give a gift to Youth Services charged to your credit card, using our secure Click & Pledge site, which mails all donated money to Youth Services twice a month. This service permits recurring donations, if you’d like to make a large gift spread out over several months. You will immediately receive a e-receipt and Youth Services will acknowledge your donation in its Annual Report.
To make a gift in cash, please stop by Youth Services at 32 Walnut St., in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Revenue from corporate matching gift programs is an increasingly vital source of income for Youth Services. Thousands of organizations match gifts of employees, directors, and retirees.

You may make a gift anonymously. Such donations are acknowledged in our annual report.
How do you thank those special individuals who inspire and illuminate, stir and motivate? Or people who are friends, when you really need them! Are you having a hard time thinking of a gift for a relative to mark a special birthday or anniversary? Why not make a donation to Youth Services in your honoree's name? You give or mail a card to your honoree explaining the gift, and Youth Services sends an acknowledgement to him or her and a tax-deductible receipt to you! You also could coordinate a larger gift from several individuals in order to make a greater impact on both your honoree and the young people served by Youth Services.
Send donations in honor or memory of an individual to: Youth Services, P.O. Box 6008, 32 Walnut St, Brattleboro, Vermont 05302-6008. Your honoree or their family members will receive word of your gift within a week. The donation will appear in Youth Services' annual report so your honoree will receive public recognition as well.
Designating a donation to Youth Services in lieu of flowers when a loved one passes away is an excellent way to make a positive impact on the lives of Windham County area youth and their families. Please advise the funeral home to list Youth Services as your "in lieu of flowers" designee.
