You can still make a difference in 2017!
12/26/2017

As 2017 draws to a close, we reflect on another year at the Ranch and celebrate some of our accomplishments. This year:

  • Two Seniors graduated from high school.
  • Nearly 60 children found a home and hope for a brighter future at the Ranch.
  • Ranchers helped with a successful first ever Pumpkin Patch.
  • We celebrated lots of birthdays and Christmas with presents and yummy food!
  • Ranchers continue to help on the farm with new animals and a growing herd.

Looking back, it’s obvious that 2017 was a great year. It is also obvious that none of this would be possible without the consistent generous support from friends like you!

At the end of 2017, you still have time to make a difference in the lives of these children. Click here to make your year-end contribution.

Because the ASYR is funded almost entirely through charitable contributions, you can help provide hope and homes for even more Arkansas children in 2018.

Here are some ways to support the Ranches at year end

•  Make a year-end gift or set up a monthly Hope Builder contribution. As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, all gifts made to the Ranches are tax deductible within the extent of the law. Click here to give online today.

•  Give by check. By far, the majority of the gifts received by the Ranches are by check. Checks made payable to ASYR may be mailed to PO Box 3964, Batesville, AR 72503. Postmark by December 31st for 2016 tax credit.

•  Give by phone. You can make a one-time gift or set up a monthly Hope Builder gift over the phone by calling 870-793-6841, ext. 315.

•  Spread the word. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and share the ASYR with your friends.

•  Donate gifts of stock or property. The Ranches can accept a variety of noncash gifts including appreciated stock or property. Contact Matt Cleveland at 501-940-3440 or matt@youthranches.com to learn more.

Your end-of-the-year gift to the Ranches is an investment in Arkansas’s future. Every gift is appreciated and is used to provide for all costs associated with raising a child. Together we can make a difference in the lives of many more children in 2018.

Wishing you and yours a New Year filled with love and kindness, from all of us at the Ranches!
