Please consider joining The Circle of Hope
When you join the Circle of Hope, you make a lasting commitment to the children of RMYA. Your sustaining gift creates brighter futures for abused and neglected children, bridging the gap between housing children and healing them. By joining at the level you are able, you provide opportunities for children to achieve individual success and establish healthy relationships. Your monthly gift to RMYA helps to break the cycle of abuse by giving children consistency, safety, and structure in a therapeutic environment. Your support makes it possible to heal trauma through respect, acceptance, and kindness to establish healthy and positive interactions. Together, we can restore hope, one child at a time.

All program donations are processed through the RMYA Thrift Shop. Every donation of clothing, furniture, or other equipment is evaluated for the use in our children’s programs first. If your donations aren’t immediately needed for the children of RMYA, we either store these items for future use or sell them in our thrift shop, where all proceeds go back to the programs. Please contact the Thrift Shop at 210-340-8011 for more information or click here.
When writing or updating your will, you can also make a real difference in the lives of children by naming RMYA as a beneficiary.There are several ways to structure a bequest:
Suggested language for a bequest to RMYA:I give [_________ dollars – or – specific assets – or – ___ percent of the residue of my estate] as an unrestricted gift to Roy Maas Youth Alternatives, a Texas 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation with offices at 3103 West Avenue, San Antonio, TX 78213, for its general use and purposes.When possible, an original copy of your will should be provided to RMYA. For more information, please contact Renee Garvens, Director of Community and Donor Relations, with your questions at 210-340-8077 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.Beneficiary DesignationsOne easy way to make an impact gift to RMYA is by designating the agency as either a full, partial, or contingent beneficiary of a retirement plan, insurance policy, or savings account. Making a gift through the beneficiary designation form, rather than through a will, may provide significant tax benefits and also allow the gift to bypass the probate process.Some common designation options include retirement plans (e.g., traditional IRA, Keogh, 401(k)), life insurance policies and savings accounts.Most beneficiary designation forms will require the federal taxpayer identification number for Roy Maas Youth Alternatives, which is 74-1914638. We are happy to talk with you and your plan or policy administrator or other advisors if you are considering designating RMYA as a beneficiary.For more information, please contact Renee Garvens, Director of Community and Donor Relations, with your questions at 210-340-8077 or email her at email@example.com.
In 2001, the Board of Directors approved the establishment of an Endowment fund; which has been named the Roy Maas’ Youth Alternative Inc. Foundation. The RMYA Foundation was established to raise $2,500,000 in order to provide a safety net for the organization. With the establishment of the Foundation, providing safety, consistency, love and personal attention to the abused, neglected and traumatized children in our care is ensured despite shifts in the economy. The foundation has a separate Board of Directors and accepts donations. To donate to the RMYA Foundation please contact Renee Garvens at (210) 340-8077, ext. 1102 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
