Ways to help support the ranch...
1.) Become a recurring small donor by signing up on Paypal. Donations are tax-deductible and can be as little as one or two dollars a month! We prefer this method of helping because it gives us stability and confidence to grow our programs. For recurring payments, PayPal collects $0.30 plus 2.9% of your donation as a fee.
2.) If you shop at KROGER or RALPHS or any of these grocery stores (Kroger, Ralphs, Pick’n Save, Pay-Less Super Markets, Mariano’s, King Scoopers, Jay C Food Store, Gerbes, Fry’s, Fred Meyer, Food 4 Less, Dillions, City Market, Baker’s, Smith’s Food and Drug, or Metro Market) you can use your member card or phone number at check out! When you checkout with your phone number or member card, the store will donate to a nonprofit of your choice...at no cost to you?

6.) Donate your car, truck, motorcycle or RV to charity; this service will pick it up and send us a check! (Vehicle does NOT have to run.)
