Ways to Give

Your Donation is Important.

Below are ways you can help us achieve our goals by making a meaningful contribution to our work. 

Online Donations

Each and every individual who supports the youth members of CYC plays a vital role in keeping youth voice and leadership at the forefront of the foster care system. We rely on donations from the community to provide more training for young people as they transform the experience of being in foster care.

All online donations are processed via Kindest, our secure online payment portal. Simply press the Donate button above and complete the form. Be sure to include any tribute information with your gift.

By Mail

Checks can be made payable to:
California Youth Connection
1311 63rd Street, Suite A
Emeryville, CA 94608

Tribute Gifts

A memorial gift is a heartfelt way to express your empathy for someone who has passed away by making a gift in their memory.

Making an honorary gift in someone’s name is a unique way to honor an extraordinary person who has touched your life.

Employer Match

Many corporations can match employee donations to CYC. It’s an easy way to double your contribution. Check with your employer to find out if they are involved in a charitable donation matching program (through Benevity, YourCause, Blackbaud, etc.). You can direct your donation (and your employer’s match) to the youth members of CYC.

Facebook Campaigns

Use social media with an added purpose, host an online fundraiser with your family and friends. You can make a birthday campaign or a special campaign, just because. Visit us on Facebook
