How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Young Life is a non-profit organization supported through the generosity of individuals, churches, foundations and businesses that care about kids and support our mission.
In many ways, Young Life is a "grass roots" organization. Most of the funds given to Young Life each year come from individuals and organizations who are committed to making a difference in the lives of kids in their communities.
Young Life also welcomes support for missionwide initiatives (e.g., major camp construction projects or scholarship funds to help kids afford the cost of camp) that reach beyond the local community.
Eighty-three percent of any gifts you make to Young Life stay right in your local area to support the ministry to kids there. The other 17 percent, known as the service charge, is sent to the Young Life Service Center and to the area's corresponding regional office to fund technical and administrative services that serve local areas
