Any type of donation to the Lancaster Children’s Home helps keep the doors open to our facilities so that we may help the young boys and girls in our care.  All donations are tax deductible, and you will receive a thank-you letter designating the gift as tax deductible.

There are several ways you can give:

Monetary – The Lancaster Children’s Home depends upon donations to continue supporting the children of our community. We must raise about one-third of our operating budget to offer our services to these neglected children. Donations are taken for general care of the children, or operating expenses, or can be designated for a specific fund, program or activity. Donations to our restricted funds, or “Endowment” are invested and used in our long-term approach to care for the children.

In-Kind – The Lancaster Children’s Home is delighted to receive many items that can be used or sold and money put in the operating account. Good clothing items the children can use are put in our clothing closet and are given out as needed. Other items we can use on the campuses are: supplies, furniture items, recreational items, books and school items, and computers and computer software and supplies.

Stock – Stock donations are accepted and placed in our investment account, unless donated to be sold for a particular purpose. All stocks are reviewed yearly by our Financial Committee made up of board members who work in financial fields. Please call us to learn more about how you can designate stock to help support the Home.

Planned Giving – Wills, estates, and bequests are extremely valuable in helping us care for the boys of our community. Please call for a personal visit and/or information on how you can benefit the Lancaster Children’s Home with your planned giving.

Volunteer – Giving of your time can be the most valuable gift you can give these children.  Please contact us about our volunteer program.
