Boys Home Meets November Fundraising Goal!


Boys Home of Virginia met their match funding goal for the month of November! For the third year in a row, Boys Home qualified to receive a $25,000 matching grant from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund. Any online donation made through  from $1 to $500 was matched 1:1 during the month. This year they also offered a special 2:1 match for online donations received on November 29, which was Giving Tuesday.   

Thanks to the generous donors, Boys Home not only met, but exceeded their goal of $25,000. They also surpassed previous totals raised on Giving Tuesday.  As a surprise gesture at the end of the event, the Jesse Ball duPont Fund awarded Boys Home with a $12,000 bonus!

All donations received for this match program will be used to continue the mission of Boys Home. Donations help provide food, shelter, clothing, education, and spiritual development for all their residents. The administration, staff and trustees are very grateful for the overwhelming response received during this fundraiser.
