Make a difference for decades to come – give homes to children and hope to families

As a legacy donor, you’ll know that you are making the world a better place for children and families in need, now and in the future. Our memorial grove holds trees planted in honor of some of the incredible individuals whose legacies have enabled our work. We would be grateful for the opportunity to talk to you about ways to incorporate TST in your estate planning. 

A few days after Thanksgiving 2017, my father found out he was dying. Over the two months before his death, he mobilized thousands of people to raise over $150,000, which he matched with $100,000 from his own estate. Read more about his journey and impact (links to stories and blog posts/updates, and/or embed his video).

If you have a loved one who cares deeply about keeping children and families together, establishing a Memorial Fund is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or to celebrate a special occasion, while making a difference in the lives of children in need. We can also assist with setting up memorial giving pages to allow people to easily contribute in your loved one’s honor, and leave messages for the organizers.

Please get in touch with us at any time if you need more information, and thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for caring about our kids.
