Ways To Give

Whaley Children’s Center is committed to filling the gap that exists between the cost of caring for a child and the funding we receive from the government to provide for our accredited residential and clinical programs and services. That means each year Whaley must raise 20% of its budget in private donations.

Donate today. Any donation you can make helps to ensure the growth and success of our youth at Whaley Children’s Center and makes it possible for us to continue transforming lives and creating futures!

At the heart of every donor who gives to Whaley Children’s Center is a desire to help children and give them a fighting chance to succeed. Here is how your donation will make an impact.

  • $100 donation will cover the cost of gas for our kids to travel 165 miles to school, competitions, doctors’ appointments, family visits, volunteer initiatives, job interviews and all other off-campus opportunities that help our children foster relationships and life skills.
  • $75 donation will cover extracurricular activities for one semester helping to enrich and expand a child’s life.
  • $50 donation provides breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks to one child for 7 days.
  • $25 donation provides an incoming boy or girl with a welcome gift which includes a new book, toy, outfit, blanket and pillow


Monthly Giving Program:
By providing Whaley Children’s Center with a consistent gift, you join a community of supporters committed to the long term success of Whaley Children’s Center. Your monthly contributions help to provide our children with basic needs of food and water, keep our lights on, put gas in the cars that take our kids to school and on family visits—the basics every household must have!


One Time Gift
One time gifts are just as important as our monthly gifts. If you have dollars set aside for charitable giving, looking to make a donation in memory of a loved one or making an end of the year holiday gift, your gifts are necessary to the success of Whaley Children’s Center’s programs and services. WCC prides itself on its financial stability
