Financial contributions of any amount have a significant impact in the lives of the children, young adults and families in our care. Your generosity allows us to provide the support they need to succeed while providing our wide array of therapeutic services to more than 10,000 children, families and community members.

How Your Gift Makes a Difference

  • Creates a sense of joy by providing a gift to a child on their first birthday away from home.
  • Assists with a month’s rent and utilities for an apartment that serves as a safe home for a young adult formerly in foster care on their own for the first time.
  • Contributes to prevention services that can help break the cycle of trauma and create stronger, more resilient, families and communities.

How to Make a Financial Contribution

You are welcome to donate online, over the phone or via mail. If you choose to mail your gift, please include all of your contact information and any special instructions for your donation. While undesignated gifts provide maximum flexibility for addressing the treatment and care of our youth, donations may also be designated for specific programs. If you would like to support a specific project, simply include those details with your contribution. All mailed checks should be made out to "Cornerstones of Care" and sent to:

  • Cornerstones of Care

Honoring or Remembering Loved Ones

Memorial gifts are made in memory of a departed loved one and acknowledged to the family of the deceased. Honor gifts are made in honor of a friend, work associate or loved one to celebrate a special occasion or just to let them know they’re important. All tribute gifts benefit the Cornerstones of Care Foundation and are listed within the next issue of our newsletter that is published several times per year.
