support Rawhide - ways to give

Rawhide relies on your generosity to help troubled youth and families turn their lives around. We need you because they need us. There are many ways to give: from stock donations to vehicle donations to the gift of time. Click on the options below and let us know if you have any questions.

Cash Donation:

Children are the future, and there are hundreds of at-risk youth in Wisconsin communities who need help and structure. We provide the environment and resources in our programs that give at-risk youth a second chance at life so they can achieve success and live up to their full potential. By choosing to make a cash donation, you are changing lives and giving hope to troubled teens that desperately need our help. Your donation will support Rawhide programs.

Car, Boat, Cycle & Other Vehicle Donations:

Would you like to improve the lives of at-risk youth? Donating a car, truck, boat, motorcycle, camper, motor home, snowmobile, heavy equipment, or anything with a motor or wheels to our charity will do just that. We began our vehicle donation program in 1983 to help fund our Ranch. It has allowed us to continually expand and grow our programs and resources to change the lives of youth who are in need of the structure, help, and guidance that our organization provides. We accept running and non-running vehicles in any condition. The donation process is fast and simple and our experienced staff will help you every step of the way. Your donation will support Rawhide programs.

The easy car donation process can be started online or by phone at 1-800-729-4433.

Charitable IRA – Consider a Year-End Gift

The IRA Charitable Rollover provision allows people age 70 ½ and older to make direct transfers totaling up to $100,000 per year to qualified charities, without having to count the transfers as income for federal income tax purposes. Congress has been renewing the provision annually, but last year made it permanent. As we approach the end of the year, please consider supporting Rawhide with an IRA Charitable Rollover.

Please contact Patti Weissling (pweissling@rawhide.org or 920-531-2591) to discuss year-end giving to Rawhide.
