What does it mean to sponsor a Rancho Del Rey boy?
A sponsor is a friend, like you, who enables more boys to benefit from this precious gift of a safe home, hope, and love. You will become part of one boy’s extended family, interested in his life today and in his future. Your regular financial support will benefit all the boys as well. Friends of Rancho Del Rey pay 100% of the bills – food, education expenses, health care, campus upkeep and staff salaries.
Why should you sponsor a Rancho Del Rey boy?
Because these boys need you! Your sponsorship will help break the terrible cycle of poverty, crime, abusive relationships and early parenthood that is practically inevitable for these boys. Their moms are needy. Most never know a dad.
Because Rancho Del Rey has been home for 60 years to thousands of boys who came from broken families, many of whom grew up to raise healthy families. They receive academic education, training in life skills (like chores and self-care) and immersion in God’s love, all in the context of healthy family relationships.
How does sponsorship work?
Choose your own level of support. Our goal is $250 USD monthly for each boy, so a boy may have more than one sponsor. Recurring electronic giving is best, using your checking account or credit card, through eGiving. You may use the form below.
You will receive a photo of one of the Rancho’s handsome boys with some personal information. We encourage you to exchange letters and/or send emails. We will translate as needed.
Our doors are wide open. Come visit your sponsored boy! (email firstname.lastname@example.org for info). Surely your long-distance love will transform his life, but an in-person hug is the best.
How do I begin
call us! 413 329 – 3786 (Susan) or from MX 001 413 329 3786 (WhatsApp messages).
What happens if/when my sponsored child leaves or graduates?
We will notify you as soon as we can if your sponsored boy leaves or graduates. (The Rancho supports graduates who choose to continue their education.) You may choose to transfer your sponsorship to another needy child.
