Thank you, donors!
Cornerstone is blessed to have a diverse mix of funding to support our mission. With the help of the sponsors below, we are making a difference every day in the lives of youth and families in Southeast Allen County. Please support any of the businesses listed below and thank them for their support of CYC. There are many ways you can contribute to Cornerstone and we thank you in advance for considering a gift or item donation to our youth!
A regular gift is defined as a financial contribution that you plan to make on an on-going annual or monthly basis. By simply committing a dollar amount to CYC, you are saying you believe in what we do and are pledging to help our organization continue and grow.
As you can imagine in serving hundreds of teens a year, we go through a lot of supplies. Below is a list of supplies that we use regularly at CYC and by contributing any of these items, you are helping us save cash to use for programming. The next time you are a store, simply put a few items in your cart and drop them at CYC.
- Items used on a regular basis
- snacks – fresh fruit and vegetables, pretzels, granola bars, yogurt, 100% fruit juice fruit snacks

Cornerstone is blessed to have been listed as a memorial for many past donors who wanted to continue their support after their passing. Please consider listing CYC as a memorial in your pre-planning, for a loved one or choose us when a donors choice is offered by the family.
Through the generosity of many past donors, we have been able to start the Cornerstone Youth Development Fund as an endowment for our mission. This endowment will ensure that we are able to continue an endless stream of funds into CYC in future years. The growth of this fund is imperative to the continuation of our mission and serving youth in Southeast Allen County. While the fund is around $20,000 in value right now, growing this fund for future years will allow the principle to be invested while we are able to use the growth for operating support or special projects. The fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne. We chose them as the manager of the fund because they offer annual matches to any gift contributed. For 2011, all donations will be matched 20% by the foundation. You can send your donation to CYC or directly to the Community Foundation. For a donation form to give to this fund, click here.
Legacy Gift – Will or Bequest
A legacy gift is a gift that will keep on giving long after you make the donation. A legacy gift can be a simple cash gift that could be invested into the endowment fund, a donation left in your will for a specific purpose, a charitable gift annuity which allows you to live on the money invested now with the balance of the fund being given to Cornerstone at upon death, or by giving stock, land or commodities. Any of these gifts will be greatly remembered.
