Your Support is Crucial

Donors are vital to Young Life at the local area and regional levels. Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget and part of a region's budget. Your donation helps areas 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.

Our Vision...
We are committed to introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grown in their faith. Young Life also aims to establish and maintain a presence at all high schools and middle schools in the local area.
YOUR Support...
We believe that in order to reach kids we must go where they go and enter their world. Every week in our local area, Young Life staff and volunteers can be found at school events and practices and at kids' favorite hangouts. In many cases, they are the only adult friends kids have in their lives. Our work could not be done without your support. We are grateful for your gift to Young Life. Thank you for all you do to help us reach generations of kids who desperately need to hear a message of hope.
Donate to the Mountaineer Area...
On-line giving is the most efficient way to donate to a Young Life area, and the money goes to local kids just as if you mail it to the area office. Just click HERE or on the big box in the top right of this page!  You can also mail your donation to our area office: PO Box 533, Morgantown, WV 26507.
Young Life areas are wholly funded by donations from individuals who live in that area.
Donations stay in the local community!
Mountaineer Area Young Life has grown dramatically.
In recent years, we have more than doubled the number of kids being reached, the schools we are in, and the number of adult volunteer leaders carrying out most of the ministry. However, financial contributions have only increased 20% during that time!
Ministry has substantial expenses.
Clubs and events; leader expenses; volunteer and staff mileage; training and conferences; equipment and supplies; & staff salary and benefits. If we do not meet our budget, it takes a toll on our volunteers, staff, and kids!
The Mountaineer Area makes the most out of its donations.
Young Life’s average full-time staff to club ratio is 1 to 1.5. Currently, the Mountaineer Area doubles the national average and has one full-time staff person per four ministries. Our staff and volunteers are working very hard to make the most of your financial gifts!
We must increase our fundraising base if we are to sustain and continue our growth.
Will you consider… Increasing your current contribution? Becoming a monthly donor? Financially giving to Young Life for the first time? Sharing this with a friend or family member? 

Thank you for your consideration!
