How you can help

Your donations or gifts enable It Takes A Village to continue to expand our services to youth, to add new programs, upgrade existing ones, purchase new equipment, and move ahead in various ways beyond normal operations and maintenance.

The work ITAV does is made possible only by the generosity of our funding partners - individuals, foundations and corporations - and enhanced by our community partners and volunteers.


Whether it’s attending one of our events, making a contribution, providing a legacy gift as part of an estate plan or volunteering time and experience, our donors help our entire community, one individual, one family at a time!

If you’re a current donor or considering making a contribution to ITAV for the first time, you can be confident that your financial support will make an immediate impact on those who seek our help.
