The most immediate way to support Yokefellow is through a financial donation. Contributions of any amount will go directly to support those in need in our community and help Yokefellow achieve its mission of ministering to those who need assistance.

Caldwell County Yokefellow is certified by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt (not-for-profit) organization. Donations to Yokefellow are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Your gifts may be designated to a specific area if you’d like: Emergency Assistance, Food Pantry or LEOS.

Also, another way to support Yokefellow financially is through planned giving. Over the years, estate gifts have been an important source of funding and instrumental in bridging the gap between the cost of providing food, emergency assistance and shelter for our neighbors in crisis and what is received through Yokefellow’s annual donations and fundraising efforts. You do not have to be wealthy to leave a generous gift. Every household can create special memorial gifts to honor loved ones in their lives with a forever gift to Yokefellow.

Thank you for considering a monetary donation!
