Ways to Give
Landlord of the Month - This giving option provides your business with the opportunity to showcase your support on our awesome 'Landlord of the Month' sign, as well as being recognized on the Heartland Youth Center facebook page and website. This bright 4’ x 8’ sign is on the south side of the Youth Center facing the busy 50th avenue. This program involves a contribution of $1000/year for a two year commitment. As important as the corporate recognition is, know that you are also supporting the youth in our community!
Memorial Giving - A donation in memory of a loved one is a special way to support the Heartland Youth Center. The next of kin are sent a card recognizing the donation, and the donor receives a tax receipt.
Corporate Donations & Sponsorships - We have numerous opportunities for corporate donations and corporate sponsorships. These are gratefully accepted throughout the year! Sponsorship opportunities can be discussed with Winnie, the HYC Executive Director.
Tribute – A tribute gift to the Heartland Youth Center is a perfect way to recognize a special occasion such as a birthday, retirement, anniversary or at Christmas. The honoree will receive a card recognizing your donation and donors of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt.
