The Our Family Campaign is Youth Villages’ internal fundraiser, allowing Youth Villages employees to make a financial contribution to our success.
Each year, our employees voluntarily give more than $1 million dollars from their paychecks to the campaign, which indicates their strong commitment to their work and Youth Villages. Since 1999, employees have given more than $10 million.
A fun, participatory theme is chosen each year, often based on pop-culture currents and frequently involving costumes, decorations, skits, displays and games.
Participating employees select their commitment level and choose from a selection of great gifts, from Youth Villages apparel and promotional items to electronics and housewares.
Funds raised through Our Family Campaign support Youth Villages programs such as YVLifeSet and are also available for our emergency funds and other categories. Each employee can choose where his or her contribution is directed.
