your support is crucial

Donors are vital to Young Life at the local area and regional levels. Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget and part of a region's budget. Your donation helps areas hire and train staff and provide essential administrative support to the area. Your contributions also support operating expenses such as salaries and other ministry costs and can help send kids to Young Life camps.

your support​​
We believe that in order to reach kids we must go where they go and enter their world. Every week in our local area, Young Life staff and volunteers can be found at school events and practices and at kids' favorite hangouts. In many cases, they are the only adult friends kids have in their lives. Our work could not be done without your support. We are grateful for your gift to Young Life. Thank you for all you do to help us reach generations of kids who desperately need to hear a message of hope.
​​donating stocks
Donating stocks is a great way to avoid capital gains taxes.  Ask your broker to make an electronic transfer of the shares to Young Life's Merrill Lynch Colorado Springs account #428-04A61. The DTC number is 8862, and it is needed if the stock is currently in an account with a company other than Merrill Lynch. Once the stock is transferred into Young Life's account, we will receive notification of the transfer, and a receipt will be sent to you. The effective date of the gift for this method is the date the shares are placed into our account. Please contact the Young Life stock accountant at (719) 381-1979 or emailstockgifts@sc.younglife.org to advise us that the gift has been made.  

Please make sure that your gift is designated to "Durham-Chapel Hill Young Life NC27"
