Make a Difference

Treehouse relies on the generous contributions of our community to make our work possible. There are many ways to give; you can become a recurring donor, donate clothing and goods to the Treehouse Store, shop our wish list, include us in your estate plans, give gifts of stock and more.

We invite you to partner with us to ensure that youth experiencing foster care have access to the resources and support they need.

Legacy Giving

“We believe that helping children to become strong, healthy, educated adults will help build social capital and reduce the need for social services in the future. We view the gifts we make to Treehouse as investments in our community’s future.” – Susan, Member of the Treehouse Fostering Futures Society

Your legacy gift can build our community’s bright future.

Including Treehouse in your estate plans is a simple way to make a lasting impact on youth in foster care.

Through our partnership with FreeWill, you can create a will for free, make Treehouse the beneficiary of an insurance policy or retirement plan, or share with us plans you have already made!
