How To Help


We are funded primarily by donations. If you would like to become a donor or would like information about Planned Giving, please contact us! Donations can vary from monetary gifts to material donations.


We firmly believe in the value and power of prayer. Please consider partnering with us through praying regularly for our ministry, our children, our team, and our communities.


Volunteers are the hands and feet of Joy Ranch! In 2021, our volunteers generously invested in Joy Ranch approximately $198,695 in labor! We have places for a wide range of skills, from organizational work to construction and landscaping.

Our needs come in many shapes and sizes! Joy Ranch can receive real estate, vehicles, farm equipment, jewelry, and other valuables as gifts to the ministry, as well as cottage supplies. Call us at 276-236-5578 to learn more about donating non-monetary gifts.

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. Contact your financial advisor or personal lawyer, or you can call us at 276-236-5578 for a financial planner recommendation.

Other Ways to Get Involved

Bequest – Many of our supporters make charitable gifts by naming Joy Ranch as a beneficiary in their wills. Please contact your personal lawyer on how to do this.

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. Contact your Life Insurance Company to change your beneficiary.

Pooled Income Fund – Your gift of money, marketable securities, or both may be invested together with similar gifts from other supporters. See your personal financial advisor or contact Joy Ranch at 276-236-5578 for a financial advisor recommendation

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. See your personal financial advisor or contact Joy Ranch at 276-236-5578 for a financial advisor recommendation.
