Other ways to help
support for us comes in many forms
NEIGHBORHOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Boys Home participates in the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP), which provides state tax credits as incentives for businesses and individuals to contribute directly to a nonprofit organization like ours.
Individuals’ contributions are limited to cash or marketable securities. In return for the unrestricted contributions, individuals receive credits that may be applied against their state income tax liability.
Boys Home does not have tax credits available at this time.
If you want more information, please contact Sandra at 540/965-7714 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always consult your tax adviser for information on tax liability.
THE BISHOP JETT FUND
This fund was named in honor of the first Bishop from the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia, who served on the Boys Home Board of Trustees, and it helps to support the expenses of our Religious Life Program. Donations are used for maintenance and upkeep for All Saints’ Chapel on our campus. And the fund also supports worship resources, religious education materials, church camps and conferences, the Boys Home Singers, and youth group activities and religious awards for Boy Scout Troop #66.
Visitors to Boys Home see the beautiful oak artwork in the lobby of the Administration Building. This “Tree of Life” is a special way to recognize the generous donors who support the Bishop Jett Fund and continue the legacy of spirituality that is so important here.
To learn more about the fund, or to make a donation, please call (540) 965-7714.

Boys Home will continue to collect Labels for Education through August of 2017, or as long as they are appearing on products. The labels are redeemed for equipment and supplies for the Greer Education Center. We are sad to see Labels for Education go as churches, groups and individuals have been collecting labels since the program began at Boys Home.
