Your tax-deductible donation today provides life-changing services for children, young adults, and their families. The next time a child gets bullied at school, he will know what to do, because of you. The next time a teenager feels pressure to use drugs, he’ll walk away, because of you. And the next time a homeless young adult thinks there’s nothing to live for, she will have a place to stay and people to help her get through the crisis, all because of you!
360 Youth Services ensures that your gift made online is safe and secure.

Many of the youth assisted by 360 Youth Services, especially the residents of our Transitional Housing Program and Cornerstone Group Home for Boys, have specific needs. If you would like to make a gift that directly impacts a child or young adult in need, visit our wish list.
Do you want to leave a legacy that helps children and young adults in need? Making a bequest from a will or a living trust is very simple. You do not have to rewrite your will or trust documents. Simply add an amendment, called a codicil, to your will or trust documents. For your convenience, we have provided some language that your attorney may review:
“I give, devise and bequeath to 360 Youth Services, the sum of _______ dollars ($_____) for the benefit of its general support (or specify the specific program you wish to support).”
Instead of naming a specific amount, you may indicate a percentage of your estate or a percentage of the remainder of the estate after you have provided for your heirs. If you have questions or would like further assistance, please contact Nancy Wiersum, Chief Advancement Officer at 630-961-2992, ext 1127 or [email protected]
Gifts of Stock
Your gift of stock can help all those who rely on 360 Youth Services, and bring tax benefits to you and your family. If you make a gift of stock, won’t you please let us know? While 360 Youth Services gratefully accepts all gifts, including anonymous ones, it is very important for us to know the identity of the donors of all gifts in order to give prompt and accurate credit for gifts received. Particularly in the case of an electronic transfer, it is often very difficult to obtain this information after the transaction is processed. As soon as a gift of stock is received, 360 Youth Services sends an acknowledgment stating the nature of the gift, the gift valuation date and the gift valuation amount for tax purposes. To properly process your gift and acknowledge your generosity, please contact Nancy Wiersum, Chief Advancement Officer at 630-961-2992, ext 1127 or [email protected]
