Support HCYC

Here you will find information on different ways you can support the Harlan Christian Youth Center. The HCYC board accepts our stewardship of the contributions made to the youth center as a solemn responsibility.

Financial Support

From its inception, HCYC has maintained an “open door” policy, with programs available to all children and their families. The gracious and continuing support of everyone who believes in our mission has allowed that policy to continue. Both one-time and long-term pledge support are welcomed. We do not receive tax support. We are a tax exempt organization, and your contributions may provide you with significant tax savings.

Donations by check may be made out to the Harlan Christian Youth Center. Our address can be found on the Contact Us page. To make secure online donations with PayPal, click the Donate button on the right. If you would like to use Amazon Smile, a donation will be made to the Youth Center each time you purchase something. The donation from Amazon does not cost you anything. They will simply make a donation based on the amount you spend.

Endowment Fund

We established an endowment fund with the Fort Wayne Community Foundation in 2001. Their professional management, matching fund programs, and your gifts have provided a steadily growing source of long-term funding. It has also allowed staff and volunteers to concentrate on delivering programming to our “kids.”

HCYC Endowment Fund contribution suggestions:

1. Cash donation to the HCYC Endowment Fund

2. Memorial gifts

3. Name HCYC Endowment Fund as beneficiary of life insurance and IRA’s.

4. Trust arrangements

5. Bequests

6. Charitable gift annuities

While some of these methods are quite simple, we would suggest that these decisions be made with the consultation/advice of your accountant or attorney. Also, if you would like to donate online please visit the Fort Wayne Community Foundation’s website by clicking on the following link:

Finally, in the unlikely event of the closing of the youth center, we have provided that Endowment Fund asset earnings be equally distributed among the supporting churches in our community. God bless and thank you for considering the Harlan Christian Youth Center in your charitable giving plans.
