Ways to Give

There are a variety of ways to support the important work that is being done at TYR. Your gift can be specific to one of our three initiatives or it can be a general donation for operations. Some of the options for donations include cash, grants, planned giving, recurring giving, in-kind donations, memorial and honorary giving, and event sponsorships.

Make a donation

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all donations to TYR are tax deductible, and donors are, at minimum, recognized in our monthly newsletters, event programs and Annual Reports. Examples of donation opportunities throughout the year include:

Art for Recovery and the TYR Gala

  • Sponsorships
  • In-kind donations

TYR conducts two major fundraising events every year: our Gala, usually held in February, and Art for Recovery, usually held in the Summer months. Sponsorship is a great way to increase the visibility of your brand and solidify your image as a company that cares about your community. Additionally, the costs of TYR’s events have historically been offset by generous in-kind donations of supplies, food, beverages, and professional services.

Recovery Homes and Community Drives

  • In-kind donations
  • Gifts

TYR contributes to the operation of the Josh Montoya House for young men and the Jane Aubrey House for young women and partners with a number of allied entities which distribute in-kind donated goods and services, e.g. Operation Backpack, holiday food baskets.

TYR Programming

  • Cash donations
  • Planned giving
  • Grants

TYR has three initiatives which address prevention and recovery throughout the continuum of a child’s educational life, from pre-K to university. This includes the upcoming Mathewson Early Prevention Program which will be the nation’s first, largest, longitudinal, research-driven prevention program for grades pre-K-12. Direct support is needed to grow these programs.
