Investing in Our Future

Thank you for your interest in providing financial support to the Samaritan Center.  Your donation is an important investment in the future of our students, which in turn is an investment in a brighter future for our community.  In fact, for every dollar invested in the Samaritan Center, taxpayers are saved $20 in the underwriting of future services that won't be needed by these boys and their families.  
 
Since its inception, the Samaritan Center has been completely privately supported; we do not accept government funding.  Each student family is required to pay a tuition fee determined by their ability to pay, which ensures that they are personally invested in our program. These fees, however, cover just over 5% of our overall annual budget. The balance of support comes from individual donors, churches, grants and foundations, and our own fundraising events.  Our donors play a vital role in closing the "financial gap," and making this program a reality.  
 
To learn more about the many different ways you can make a difference in the lives of families in our area, we invite you to contact us or make a donation today. We also welcome the donation of items on our wish list. Gifts of all denominations are accepted and greatly appreciated.
