When you are passionate about a cause, you can’t help but want to be a part of it, creating an impact in some tangible way.

Circle of Hope & Support donors believe in Pressley Ridge’s unique mission to provide safe and supportive environments where children, youth and families can work to increase their sense of wellbeing and achieve sustainable, positive outcomes. These individuals demonstrate their support by making a significant annual gift of $1,000 or more to the organization. They come from different vantage points and include board members, employees, foundations, corporations and friends. Together, they all share a commitment to investing in the future of Pressley Ridge and the children, families and communities we serve.

Member gifts reflect the diversity of their interests. Some give to the Pressley Ridge Unrestricted Fund to allow maximum flexibility in the use of their gift, while others designate their gift to a particular area of interest, such as foster care, a school program, or mental health services. To make their gift, donors can even arrange for preauthorized payments to be charged to their credit card each month, making giving simple and convenient. Circle of Hope & Support donors know that they are part of something that changes the lives of children, youth and families, all while having a major impact on our local communities.
