Request a Joy Ranch Speaker!
We would love to share our story, our ministry, and our ongoing plans for development with you! A Joy Ranch team member will be glad to come to your church, class, civic organization or agency to share our vision of the Joy Ranch mission and provide details of the services we provide to our community. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about more information and to schedule a date!
Joy Ranch is funded primarily by individual donations, church donations, fund raising events, trust funds and bequests left by individuals in their will. If you would like to become a supporter of the Joy Ranch ministry or would like information about Planned Giving, please contact us.
Periodically we list items that we need at Joy Ranch. Below is such a list. If you have any of these items in good working order and would like to donate them to us, we will gladly take them and issue you a non-monetary donation receipt for tax purposes. All donations are tax deductible.
Other Ways to Get Involved
Non-monetary Gifts - Valuable resources and needs come in many shapes and sizes! Joy Ranch traditionally receives real estate, vehicles, farm equipment, jewelry, and other valuables as gifts to the ministry.
Planned Giving - A planned gift helps to ensure the future of services and programs we provide for many years to come. Planned gifts include gifts through your will, charitable gift annuities, pooled income funds, and charitable trusts.
Bequest - Many of our supporters make charitable gifts by naming Joy Ranch as a beneficiary in their wills.
Gift of Life Insurance - Some of our supporters no longer need their life insurance that was purchased years ago to provide for children or other family members, and donate the policy to Joy Ranch.
Pooled Income Fund - Your gift of money, marketable securities, or both may be invested together with similar gifts from other supporters.
Charitable Lead Trust - Individuals with very large estates can use a charitable lead trust to benefit Joy Ranch and pass principal to family members with little or no tax penalty.
Gifts of Retirement Plans - Your IRA assets will be transferred to a charitable remainder trust, the trust will provide life income to the beneficiary, and then an eventual gift to Joy Ranch. For more information about how you can include Joy Ranch in your planned giving, please contact us!
Amazon Smile - Designate us as your charitable organization as you shop on Amazon. All the details are at https://smile.amazon.com/.
