Occasion Donation FAQs

How will my honoree(s) know about the gift?
In addition to the formal acknowledgment letter sent to the donor, Community Youth Services will also send a note to your honorees and/or their family to inform them of your thoughtfulness in their honor.

Is there a minimum amount to donate?
While every contribution to Community Youth Services is welcome and valued, we encourage a minimum Occasion Donation of at least $25 or more to cover administrative expenses with enough remaining to help support a youth program. Naturally, the more generous your gift, the greater impact it will have on the services we provide to high-risk and homeless youth in South Puget Sound.

Will anyone know how much I donated?
All contributions to Community Youth Services are considered private and kept in confidence. When notifying your honorees of your gesture, we will include the amount of your Occasion Donation only upon your request.
