Ways to Support
Thank you for your interest in supporting Samaritan Center. You can help us change lives in remarkable ways.
How? By making a tax-deductible contribution, attending or sponsoring our fundraisers , volunteering your time and talents, donating items for our “Wish List”, – or perhaps by referring a boy you know who would benefit from a program that helps him to flourish in life rather than fail.
Since its inception over 50 years ago, Samaritan Center has been completely privately supported: We do not accept government funding.
Each of our student families contributes toward their tuition based on their ability to pay, to ensure they are personally invested in our program. These fees, however, cover just 5% of our overall annual budget. The balance of support comes from individual donors, churches, grants and foundations, as well as our annual fundraising events. Our supporters play a vital role in closing the "financial gap," and making this program a reality.
Samaritan Center is proud to display the GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency, which certifies that we provide up-to-date information to help you make an informed decision about your charitable giving to our organization.
Your donation is an important investment in the future of our students and their families, which in turn is an investment in a brighter future for our community. For every dollar invested in Samaritan Center, taxpayers are saved $20 in the underwriting of future services that won't be needed by these boys and their families.
