Support BBBS

We know that it takes a village to raise a child. And we know that one in three kids does not have a positive and sustained mentor in their life. Together, we have the opportunity to change that. A Village is what every kid needs. With your help, we can keep making our Village bigger and stronger, and empower our Little's Biggest Possible Futures.

Ways to Give 

Leave a Legacy

Are you passionate about helping children?

At U.P. Kids, we are passionate about caring for children and building brighter futures.  With a very simple gift, you can help us do what we do today, even better tomorrow.

Did you know that many people choose to make a charitable gift in their estate plan to support causes that have been important in their life?  

There are plenty of advantages to making a gift to a charity like U.P. Kids through your estate plan, such as potential income tax deductions and savings for you and your family; little or no financial impact during your lifetime; the peace of mind that a contingent gift will not diminish gifts for family; and the personal satisfaction that you have made a difference for local children in need.

If you’re interested in helping secure the life-altering mission of U.P. Kids through a charitable gift, please consult with your financial and tax professionals for advice specific to your situation.  If you’d like to further discuss the mission of U.P. Kids, we’re always available and would love the opportunity to talk to you to provide the information you need and share what we do.
You can make a simple yet transformational gift through your estate plan that costs you nothing during your lifetime… Yet offers dividends long after you’re gone. Please consider investing in a child’s future by making a gift in your will or trust, naming U.P. Kids as beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account, establishing a gift of real estate to take effect when you no longer need the property, or exploring other gifting methods available.
