You’re interested in supporting the TeamMates Mentoring Program. Now it’s time to consider what form your gift will take. 

The TeamMates Mentoring Program has many ways to give that will significantly impact our youth and their mentors.  Our goal is to help donors understand how we function and how our mission helps those we serve. Gifts to TeamMates Mentoring are tax deductible, and you may designate your gift to TeamMates National or to the TeamMates Foundation. 

TeamMates National

TeamMates Foundation

The TeamMates Foundation is an endowed fund that provides long-term sustainability to the TeamMates Mentoring Program.  Unrestricted gifts to the TeamMates Foundation provide long-term support to ensure mentoring will exist for all youth and their mentors for generations to come.

  • Retirement plans & life insurance
