Where Your Donation Goes

StepStones Values Your Money

We believe that generous donor dollars should be directed completely to supporting young people rather than covering administrative costs. StepStones strives to reduce operational expenses through attaining donated office space, mobilizing volunteers, and partnering with other youth-serving organizations to ensure services and resources are not duplicated.
