Because all of our funding comes from private sources, it is never possible to plan a long-term future for the Edgewood Children’s Ranch. In these days of increasing concern over youth-related crime, we have no shortage of families who need help….but because we never turn a child away based on ability to pay, there is always a need for money to keep the program up and running. For this reason we invite you to consider giving today in order for the Edgewood Children’s Ranch to continue its work in the future.
Even though parents pay what they can afford to help house, and educate their children, this is often minimal to the actual cost which is accrued. The balance is made up from gifts of financial support from individuals, churches, foundations, and corporations.
Edgewood Children’s Ranch is a 501C-3 registered charity and all gifts are tax deductible. The Ranch does not accept Federal or State funding, since that would require departure from Christian principles which is center to the Ranch.
Gifts of Cash
The easiest, most common way for people to support Edgewood Ranch is with cash gifts—checks, and credit cards are accepted.
LOVE A KID PROGRAM
You can also help with on-going monthly support. People who join our “Love a Kid” program commit to a donation of $25.00 each month.
Additional Non-Cash Gift Giving Opportunities
Existing Life Insurance Policies- Simply transfer an existing policy to the Edgewood Children’s Ranch as owner and irrevocable beneficiary. The cash value of the policy is tax deductible.
