Online Giving

We all have a role to play in providing better futures for our children. No matter where you live or who you are, there is a child waiting, depending on you.

Give by Check

Donations and charitable giving make a huge difference in the lives of our children.

Hill Country Youth Ranch, P.O. Box 67, Ingram, TX, 78025

Estate Planning

Designating HCYR as a beneficiary through a Bequest, Trust, Life Insurance, or other planned giving vehicle can make a huge impact in the lives of children we serve here in the Hill Country.



Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be donated to HCYR, just like other appreciated assets such as stocks and business interests. Before you sell bitcoin and donate the after-tax proceeds, consider donating your bitcoin directly to the Youth Ranch. This strategy includes two significant benefits, both for you and the charity:

    • Your tax deduction will be equal to the fair market value of the donated bitcoin (as determined by a qualified appraisal).
    • Your cryptocurrency donation is tax-smart because instead of paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation, the HCYR will receive the full value of your contribution.

Stock & Property

Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets, such as stock, your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to the Hill Country Youth Ranch.

If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. You can make a gift of your unused retirement assets to help further our mission.






Gifts in Kind

Gifts in kind help us enormously as we continue to maintain a quality environment. Such gifts include real estate, furniture, vehicles, and all manner of material goods. With a big family like ours (110 children at a time), material goods are in constant demand, and we simply could not afford to replace the large ones like appliances and vehicles on a continual basis.

Like every active family, we wear things out. We have a system for utilizing all such gifts for maximum benefit. First, we sort donations to see what can be used at one of our campuses. After we’ve furnished our residences, outfitted and supplied the children, we offer remaining items for sale at one of our two Thrift Shops. Either way, our children reap the benefit.

Call us to schedule a pick-up at 367-2131, or bring items to any of the three campuses from 8 to 5, Monday through Friday.
