StepStones Does Not Waste Your Money

StepStones believes that donor dollars should go directly to the youth and not to administrative costs. This is why we strive to reduce administrative costs so that all money can go to charitable activity.

  • All office space is donated.
  • Many administrative responsibilities are conducted by volunteers.
  • StepStones creates partnerships with other charities to ensure that there is no duplication of services and resources.
  • Even this website… was made by a volunteer!
