Opportunities

White’s is deeply grateful for all gifts that we receive. Your gift makes a lasting difference in the lives of the children we serve.

The easiest, most convenient way to give is by using our online giving form.  If you would like to donate, please click here to access our form.

You may also give by credit card by calling 260-563-1158 ext. 1346. Unless specifically designated, gifts will benefit White’s Friend of a Child Program, which provides cultural, educational, athletic, social and spiritual activities for the children and teens in White’s care.

In addition to our Friend of a Child fund, we have the Spiritual Life Fund. The Spiritual Life Fund designates funds specifically to our faith-based program, which are funded solely through our giving programs. This fund provides our students with bibles, youth group, the chapel program, and other faith-based activities, which lend to building their relationship with God.

You may make a single gift, a periodic gift or monthly gifts. Many donors prefer the ease of automatic monthly giving from your bank account or credit card through White’s 401(k)ids Plan.

Some giving examples include:

  • Monetary gifts or pledged gifts
  • Stocks, bonds or other securities
  • Non-monetary gifts or in-kind gifts
  • Real Estate or business interest

Finally, gifts may be specified for White’s endowment — a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding for White’s.

In an endowment, assets are invested and each year part of the value of the fund is paid out to support its designated purpose. Any earnings above and beyond this distribution are then used to build the fund’s market value, allowing the endowment to grow and ultimately, to champion its designated purpose in perpetuity. There are four fund categories within the endowment, with the unrestricted endowment fund providing the most flexibility.

If you are considering a gift method other than cash, check or credit, special taxes and other factors may apply. White’s reserves the right to accept or decline specific gifts of real estate based upon the decision of White’s Board of Directors or Chief Executive Officer.

For a larger amounts — generally gifts of more than $2,000 — donors may wish to make a “pledged gift” to be paid over one or two years. This allows White’s to anticipate funding for future planning.

In addition, you may specify your gift to memorialize someone who is deceased, or honor someone you love or admire.
