Other Ways to Give

Join us in building stronger communities by supporting our work.
There are several meaningful ways you can support our mission. Learn about making a legacy gift, volunteering, attending or sponsoring an event and much more. Also, learn how contributions made today make an impact on our future work.


We support over 4,000 individuals and families each year in Southern Illinois. While we receive funding from various government sources to support our work, it doesn’t cover many of the expenses required to give special assistance or even little holiday surprises to the youth and family we serve.
Here are just some of the things donor gifts help fund:

• Holiday gifts for foster care children
• Extracurricular activity fees for youth
• Transportation costs for foster parents
• Emergency assistance for foster families is crisis
• Clothing, personal hygiene items, and safe shelter for a trafficking survivor


Major Gifts

Major gifts are identified at $1,000 or more. For major gift inquiries, an exploratory visit with the donor is appreciated so that the proper opportunity can be explored and meet the desires of both the donor and the organization.

To learn more, please contact Alice Drobisch at adrobisch@hoyleton.org or (618) 688-7094.

Memorials & Tributes

A gift in memory in honor of a loved one has become an expression of thoughtfulness to many. These types of gifts, in any amount, are appropriate ways to recognize someone’s life, a relative or friends’ birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion. A notification is sent to the recipient or in the case of a memorial, to the immediate family, as well as the donor. Memorials/Tributes will be recognized in the Annual Report.

Make a tribute gift through our standard donation form or contact Alice Drobisch at adrobisch@hoyleton.org or (618) 688-7094.

Planned Giving (Legacy Program)

Long-range estate and financial planning allows donors to make a difference in the lives of others and assist in fulfilling their personal financial goals. Individuals leaving a planned gift are building a lasting legacy for the next generation.

To learn more about leaving a bequest in a will, gifts of appreciated securities, real estate or assignment of life insurance to Hoyleton Youth and Family services, please contact Alice Drobisch at adrobisch@hoyleton.org or (618) 688-7094.
