Ways to Give

Orchard Place is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization in Iowa and is a nationally recognized leader in children's mental health and juvenile justice services. Our team of over 400 highly-trained specialists is dedicated to the children and adolescents of Iowa. At Orchard Place, we have been working closely with the youth in need, successfully using compassion and care to help them develop strong futures.

We’ve had countless success stories and we couldn't do it without your support. Making a gift to Orchard Place allows us to respond to the ever-changing needs, and your mental health donations help us serve nearly 9,000 Iowa children with emotional and behavioral challenges every year.

General support gifts provide funding for expenses and services that our public sources of funding and insurance do not cover, such as transportation for families to attend family therapy sessions, summer programming for children in residence at Orchard Place Campus, furnishings for our residential facilities, special programs and other developing needs of children. Gifts of all sizes are appreciated and will be put to good use. Here are a few specific ways you can give.

Honor & Memorial Donations for Mental Health Services

Wondering what to give the person who has everything? An honor gift is a wonderful way to acknowledge a friend or family member while making a donation to positively impact the lives of Iowa kids. Support our local nonprofit organization and make a donation in honor of a loved one to Orchard Place.

A memorial donation continues the legacy and memory of a loved one and makes an immediate impact on the lives of children served by Orchard Place. Making a donation in memory of a friend or family member can be just the right way for expressing compassion to someone who has had a loss. Your memorial donation will help us continue to inspire hope and contribute to the well-being of Iowa children challenged by emotional and behavioral issues.

When making your gift, please indicate the name of the person you wish to honor and provide a mailing address on the contribution form. Orchard Place will send a notification of your generous remembrance to the individual or individuals memorialized or honored (your gift amount is not disclosed). We are happy to share overall gift totals, if requested. To confirm that Orchard Place has received your gift and for tax purposes, you'll receive a letter documenting the gift amount.
