Your Gift

We rely on donations to serve a critical need in our community. Without Child Advocates, children would be lost in the system and have no voice. Help us stand up for children who need an advocate and show them they are valued and cared for. 


Financial gifts to Child Advocates allow for the recruitment, training and support of 700+ court-appointed advocate volunteers each year. Without their support, abused and neglected children would not have a caring voice to represent them in court. Give a one-time or recurring gift. However you choose to give, your support will help us meet the needs of Marion County youth.

The Future Voices Campaign will help Child Advocates proactively address the needs of children and families through the recruitment of strong advocates, strategies for improving educational outcomes, high-quality programs and bringing progressive ideas to the child welfare system.
