Care Never Takes A Holiday
While there are certain dates that stand out on our calendar, it takes a lot to care for our boys and keep the Ranch running day after day. Supplies, repairs, building and remodeling expenses, and even life's surprises can really take a bite out of our budget. Your support is always needed and appreciated, whether we're preparing for a big event or just trying to get through a given Monday. If you're considering a donation to the Boys Ranch, please take a moment to review some upcoming projects that your gift could help to fund. We couldn't do this without you!
Providing A Guiding Light In Stormy Seas
Lighthouse Ranch for Boys serves young men 12 to 17 years of age who have been affected by abuse, neglect, and troubled home lives. Since its founding in 1979, over 1,000 boys have found a safe, stable, and nurturing environment at the Ranch where they can focus on their education and emotional healing.
The Boys Ranch operates a fully-accredited school on its campus where residents receive one-on-one instruction from a certified teacher. They can also participate in horsemanship and agriculture programs to learn valuable skills and foster a spirit of personal accomplishment. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Ranch relies on charitable contributions to help boys overcome difficult backgrounds and build a foundation for their future success.
our annual fundraiser to support the ranch
Every October, we invite sponsors and community members to visit the Boys Ranch and share a day of family-friendly fun, music, and food with us. Not only does Ranch Day serve as our biggest fundraiser for the following year, but it's an event we all look forward to and enjoy. We welcome you to come meet our boys, learn more about the Ranch, and join in the celebration at the next Ranch Day.
