Monthly Donors

When you choose to give through ongoing contributions as a Bridge Builder, you not only help Southwest Youth & Family Services save time, money, and resources, but those gifts add up and help create a better future across South King County. An automatic deduction from your credit or debit card means more of your gift goes directly to help clients connect with the resources youth and families need to thrive.

  • Youth Mentoring 
  • Event and marketing assistance
  • One-time group projects
  • Workshop facilitation for youth and/or adults (computer skills, cooking, nutrition, arts, exercise, etc.)
  • Reading with elementary-age students after school (bilingual a plus)
  • Cleaning and fixing up community garden spaces
  • Assisting with upcoming development events and acknowledgments
  • Supporting outreach efforts for marketing
  • … and more!
