Your gifts celebrate children with special needs and renew their families!
Jill’s House has been built and maintained through gifts from generous partners and foundations like you. We receive no direct state or federal funding. As you may know, fees paid by families for an overnight stay represent only a fraction of the actual cost to care for the children. Jill’s House is a registered (501) (c) (3) nonprofit organization, and your gifts are tax deductible to the highest extent allowed by law. We are committed to responsible, transparent stewardship so that your gifts have the greatest impact for the children and families we serve. In 2012, funds permitting, we expect to offer more than 4,500 nights of overnight respite and 3,000 days of camp as we work to bring renewal to as many families as possible.
There are several ways your gifts can support families and children with special needs. Please note that your online giving is safe, convenient and secure. Thank you for partnering with Jill’s House!
Your gift to Jill’s House general operations enables us to deliver the support, care and exceptional experience to the families and children we serve. Funds are used to connect families to resources they need, train volunteers, and provide a compassionate team to stand alongside each family as they embark on their journey to experience the rest and renewal they so desperately need. Whether you give a monthly or one-time gift, you help celebrate special children and give a desperately needed break to more families.
Your $125 gift helps cover the direct care costs for a child’s stay at Jill’s House – food, specially trained childcare specialists, activities, nurses – everything required to deliver exceptional, safe care. Please consider a monthly or one-time sponsorship.
Become a year-round partner and benefit from exposure at our numerous annual events including golf tournament, dance, motorcycle ride to benefit Jill’s House, Christmas brunch, and more. We will work together to customize a partnership program that works best for you.
