Ways to Give

By giving to the Ohio-West Virginia Youth Leadership Association, you are making an investment in the youth in our community. Our young leaders deserve the best programs and with your donation we can provide our youth with invaluable opportunities to develop their skills in leadership, character, service, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy. Your giving will make a monumental difference in the lives of hundreds of youth and the impact our YLA programs have on them will remain for the rest of their lives.

We are confident that your contribution will greatly benefit youth through our programs. Donating will allow you to connect with many other philanthropists who share the same values of equipping youth with the best education. The youth served by our organization display a promising future, and we are excited to see how our programs assist them in their endeavors.

On behalf of all Youth Leadership Association members, staff, and prospective members, we are so grateful for your kindness. Thank you!

Cash and Pledges

You can give us a gift in the form of cash, check, or credit card. For your convenience, you can also set up automatic donations that can be deducted monthly or annually from your credit card or bank account. You can also pledge a gift to pay in installments usually within three years.

If you would like, you can always direct your contributions to a specific program or initiative.

You can make a contribution online with your credit card.

Gifts of Stock/Securities

Another way to give is by transferring a gift of stocks. This form of gift may allow you to deduct the fair market value of the gift and bypass capital gains tax on appreciation. If you would like to contribute to our organization through a gift of stock, please call us at (304) 478-2481.

Legacy & Estate Gifts

How do you hope to leave your legacy? You can help to transform the lives and futures of our youth. Your contribution will benefit Youth Leadership Association members along with the next generations to come. You can contact us for more information by emailing [email protected]
Some ways to give a legacy gift include designating a gift in your will or estate plan, establishing a trust, creating a life income gift, and entrusting property, cash, or a proportion of your estate. Of course, you can always specify how you would like your gifts to be used.

More ways to give:

A life insurance policy that you no longer plan to use
Charitable Gift Annuities
Charitable Remainder Trusts

Call us at (304) 478-2481 to talk about any plans to give.

Honor/Memorial Gift

If you have a loved one, YLA member, or YLA staff member that has made a difference in your life or the lives of others, you may consider making a gift in honor of this person.

Making a gift in memory of a special person is a wonderful way to honor this person’s legacy in a way that benefits the youth in our community.

We would love to review the options to give with you and discuss how your contribution will make a lasting impact on you and our youth.
