Holiday Giving

How to Support The Villages this Holiday Season

Tis the season of giving and joy! We are thrilled and thankful for your generous participation in our Spirit of Giving community. Please read carefully as we have revamped our gifting opportunities to best support the over 3,100 children we serve, everyday, statewide.

Explore the information below and let us know how you wish to bring Holiday cheer to The Villages children & families. The deadline to provide all Spirit of Giving donations will be Friday, December 11th, to give our team ample time to distribute donations to families. Should you want to support our mission beyond that, please send gifts to our Indianapolis Office. Our official sponsorship of children and families has closed.

Should you have any questions, please feel free contact our Director of Development, Sarah Cline SCline@villages.org | 317.775.6500

Looking for a way to give back and involve your co-workers in giving to deserving children and families this Holiday Season? Share about The Villages with your friends, family, faith community or create your own Virtual New Toy Drive. These donated gifts will help The Villages provide new toys to children who enter foster care right before or during the Holidays, birthdays now, and throughout the year.

*To limit the possibility of exposure for our staff and those we serve, we ask that all gifts be ordered online and delivered to The Villages through the retailer’s shipping company. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Cline at SCline@villages.org.
