how you can help
Become a retreat mentor
We are all born with unique passions, gifts and talents. We all have something valuable to say or to contribute. As adults we understand this, but as adolescents we often don’t. By volunteering as a Saving Grace Village mentor, you can spend time doing what inspires you while making a difference in the life of an adolescent girl.
We’re looking for individuals who are passionate about activities such as painting, photography, crafts, mediation, cooking and nature, and we’re always looking for new ideas and activities to add to our program. Want to become involved but don’t have an activity to share? That’s ok, too! Our girls need role models to encourage them, listen to them and explore new activities with them. Let us know how you’d like to contribute. We have a place for you.
Become a team member or board member
Saving Grace Village is a volunteer-driven organization, and our goal is to build a diverse team committed to empowering adolescent girls. In addition to becoming a mentor, you can participate in one of our teams, which include Finance, Communications, Programming and Volunteers, and Fundraising. Or join our board of directors and help define and shape our future. Let us know how you’d like to be involved!
Make a donation
A retreat like ours isn’t financially accessible to many of the girls we are targeting, which is why your contribution makes all the difference. Your support will help us to offer our weekends at no cost so we can reach and empower as many girls as possible.
In addition to making a direct donation, you can contribute to Saving Grace Village through AmazonSmile, a program that allows you to donate 0.5% of your Amazon purchase ($.50 per $100 spent) to your favorite U.S.-based nonprofit. If you are a Thrivent Financial® member eligible for Thrivent Choice, you can direct your Choice Dollars to Saving Grace Village. And remember, you can always designate your annual United Way gift to go to Saving Grace Village.
