Our Nonprofit Funding Sources
St. John Bosco Child & Family Services is a registered member of the New York State Charities Bureau. Our primary source of funding is a per diem, per child rate annually established by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.
The Bounty of Many Benefactors
Walden, New York-based St. John Bosco Child & Family Services accepts donations and is grateful to all of the kind donors of gifts and funds over the years. The generosity of our benefactors helps us to expand the programs that serve our children, enabling us to meet additional needs and provide activities that enrich their lives. We thank all past and future donors for the kindness and generosity that supports our mission and enhances, beyond measure, the joy brought to the children.
Holiday Gift Giving
We have been profoundly moved by the kindness of our benefactors, particularly at holiday time. Holiday gift giving has enabled us to provide clothing and personal gifts of substance; provide trips and diversions that afford the children unique and memorable experiences, and provide ways for the children to spend the holidays with their families. These gifts also enable the staff and residents of St. John Bosco Child & Family Services to participate in a joyful holiday celebration together. It is at the annual holiday party where the children truly shine, acknowledging the staff that supports them, and providing entertainment through their "talent show."
