We appreciate your support!

header_donateWe are grateful for your generous financial support.  None of our funding comes from government grants, and only 3% comes from family event registration fees.  That means we are supported almost completely by the generosity of others, making it possible for our REACH kids and families to experience the spring retreat, fall camp, mentoring, and other life-shaping services at zero or little cost to them.  No one who needs REACH is excluded.  What a blessing. Thank you for making that a reality.

REACH is a registered 501(c)(3). EIN: 91-1644321

Ways to Give

All REACH supporters share one important reward for their gifts: the personal satisfaction from making an investment in dignity and hope for children, families, and young adults experiencing rejection because of HIV. There are many ways to give to REACH, and our Executive Director, Dan Stoehr, looks forward to working with you to help provide a safe community for those we serve. You may contact Dan at 253-383-7616 or dstoehr@REACHministries.org.

Legacy Giving

REACH’s core values are:

     Unconditional Acceptance – We treasure who you are.

     Safe Community – We journey through life together.

     Joy – We play and laugh together.

     Trust – It’s safe to be you.

If those values reflect your values, planning for a future gift to REACH can give you great joy and allow you to “give back” and “pay it forward.” A planned gift can be an affordable way to make a transformational gift for our continued relevance well into the future. To discuss possibilities, please contact our Executive Director, Dan Stoehr, at 253-383-7616 or dstoehr@REACHministries.org.
