Ways to Get Involved

Supporting the youth programs at Middle Earth is a real investment in the future well-being of our community!

There are lots of ways to support us, both big and small. Consider these ideas:

Make a one-time donation

Research shows that afterschool and mentoring programs can foster better academic performance, improved social skills, increased self-confidence, reduced risk taking, and higher aspirations for their future. Please consider making a tax deductible donation by clicking on the “Donate Now” button to provide hope to local youth.

Donate a gift card

We use gift cards in small denominations as prizes and motivation for our youth. Additionally, you could donate an Amazon gift card to Middle Earth so that we can purchase supplies for our programs.
