Will You Help Us?

Our work could not be done without your support. ​Thank you for all you do to hel​p us reach ge​nerations of kids wh​o desperately need to hear a message of hope.​

Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget. Your donation helps us 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.

We need your support! Whether you're interested in sending kids to camp, enabling more contact work, helping supply a club, or empowering a Campaigner group, there's a giving opportunity for you. 
Please browse our list of opportunities below, and thank you again for your commitment to introducing local kids to Christ!

Donate Stock:

1. Contact Your Broker

  • If your shares are held in an account ...
    • ​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 5198, and it is nee​ded 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 to advise us prior to the gift being made. 
  • If you hold the certificate for your shares ...
    • ​Please sign the stock over to Young Life, either by endorsing the back of the certificate or by using the stock power. Please make sure to sign exactly how the name(s) appear on the front of the certificate. If you have already had the certificate reissued in the name of Young Life, it is not necessary to provide us with a stock power. Both types should then be mailed to the attention of the Stock Accountant at the Young Life Service Center, 420 N. Cascade Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80903.
    • Due to the nature of the document being mailed, we recommend that you send it via certified/registered/express mail. When the certificate is received, it will be immediately liquidated and a receipt will be sent to you. The effective date of the gift made in this manner is the date of the postmark for certificates still registered to the donor, and the certificate date for those that have been reissued in the name of Young Life.
  • If you are transferring shares of a mutual fund ...
    • ​Please contact our stock accountant to discuss how to initiate the transfer. Because each mutual fund company has its own unique procedures, we will need to contact your mutual fund company or your broker to coordinate the most efficient way to make the transfer.

2. Advise Young Life of the Gift

  • ​Please contact our stock accountant with the designation (how you want your gift to be used) for the stock gift, the number of shares and the identity of the stock. You can call our stock accountant directly at 719-381-1979. To ensure efficient processing of the gift, it is very important to provide the information above. Please do not rely on your stock broker or wire transfer service to provide us with this information.
