The Golf Tournament, Autumn Gala, and other special events are Hoffman Homes for Youth's fundraising efforts to provide necessary support to the operating budget. Gifts to these solicitations ensure up to date, cheerful and safe residences for our children. Each of these fundraising events defray the cost of needed renovations to the school building, residences and recreation spaces. They are vital to sustain an adequate environment for healing and learning.
Unrestricted donations are the most important gifts Hoffman Homes can receive. These donations allow us to carry out the most critical functions of the organization and allocate funds where they are needed most. Unrestricted donations allow us to use your generosity to respond to ever changing needs.
Endowment funds provide additional income to
supplement the annual operating budget and provide for needed growth.
Gifts to the endowment fund enable Hoffman Homes for Youth to anticipate
a stable financial future.
