The ministry of Long Island Youth Mentoring is made possible by God's provision through His people who invest their time and resources. We are grateful if you are considering investing your resources and would like to share with you the various and significant opportunities available to you.
Online Giving through PayPal:
A majority of the resources given to the ministry of Long Island Youth Mentoring are contributed by donors who pledge a monthly sum. In addition to the seasonal and annual fundraising events, these donations provide a financial foundation for the ministry throughout the year.
An Annual Gift:
Other donors give annually. These gifts usually come at the end of the year, but you have the option of choosing the time of year that is good for you.
Include Long Island Youth Mentoring in Your Will:
This is a gift that will benefit the ministry in the long-term. We hope you will choose to inform us of your decision to mention Youth Mentoring in your will, but we recognize that many make this gift without informing us.
Give at work through the United Way Donor Choice Option #014396:
Many who are involved with this ministry are strongly encouraged to give to the United Way at work through payroll deductions. One of the options you can choose when you do this is giving through 'Honor Choice'. This gives you the opportunity to designate your gift to the United Way to this ministry. All you will need to know is listed below.

Give a percentage of the proceeds of the sale of your home if you are leaving Long Island
One day I received a call from a long-term supporter of the ministry. He told me that he and his wife were moving off of Long Island to retire and they decided to give a tithe of the sale of their house to support this ministry. Needless to say, this gift made a huge impact on the ministry. This is a way to leave a lasting impact on the Kingdom work on Long Island as you leave the area.
Connect Youth Mentoring with other people and Corporations
Some enjoy telling others about what God is doing in an attempt to encourage them to participate. If you have this desire, please indicate your request here and our Executive Director, John Cragg, will give you a call to set up a time to get together and discuss it.
The Run for Youth:
The annual Run For youth takes place this year on May 12th at 9am at the Robert Moses Beach field 2.
Gather with hundreds of men, women and children in an effort to raise money for Long Island's at-risk and troubled children at the Run for Youth. Each person recruits sponsors who pledge a donation. Some participants run, others jog and most walk. Whether you are interested in being a sponsor or a participant, Please indicate your desire below.
I would like to join in this effort by walking or running in the RFY.
The Harvest Auction:
The Ninth Annual Harvest Auction will be held November 17, 2012. It will begin at 6:00 pm with a Silent Auction and hors d'oeuvres followed by dinner and a Main Auction. This event provides opportunities for you to invest your resources as well as your time. But what most people talk about is the fun. Our Auction Committee get together to volunteer their time and put on a first class event. Please visit our Auction page on this website for additional information.
