In-Kind Support

CHILDREN AT RISK welcomes the support of individuals and businesses who can provide in-kind donations of goods or services that allow us to continue to advocate for Texas children. We also welcome auction donations for our various fundraising events. Please note that we are not a direct service provider, so direct donations such as clothes, food, or diapers are not appropriate.

Host a Fundraiser or “Friendraiser”

Spread the word of CHILDREN AT RISK’s mission and support us by hosting a fundraiser or “friendraiser” at your home, external location, or virtually. You can also designate CHILDREN AT RISK as the beneficiary of a third-party event or organize a peer-to-peer fundraiser in honor of a milestone event like a birthday or anniversary.

Leave a Legacy

Unlike cash donations, planned giving donations are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and come to fruition upon your passing.  We encourage you to consider CHILDREN AT RISK as part of your estate planning and would be happy to provide sample language should you need assistance.
