Hoyleton Youth and Family Services

Donate to Hoyleton

Join us in building stronger communities by supporting our work.

Our work to help build stronger communities in Southern Illinois is not possible without the generosity of our donors. Please consider making a gift today.

Why support Hoyleton?

We support over 2,000 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

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) 688-4742.


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.
