Together We Help So Many Kids


The supporters of Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch are so gracious and well informed about our ministry. I have learned so much of our history from those I am blessed to visit with. Please know that we appreciate you very much.

Many of our friends have been giving for years, some are new to our ministry, while still others are third generation supports of our critical work. Together we are helping at-risk children and their families succeed in the name of Christ.

Recently Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch received a major gift from a long and loyal friend. Past Ranch staff recall her saying that, "she wished she could do more," and had conversations with her about what she wanted to do to help our kids.

This woman decided to name the Ranch in her will. She recently joined our Lord in Heaven and left the Ranch as a beneficiary of a sizable gift. Her wish was to give more than she had the capacity to give during her lifetime. She made that wish come true by naming our ministry in her Will.

If you are passionate about bringing hope and healing to the kids at the Ranch and would like to hear more about the impact a major gift could make, please reach out to us. We can discuss whether you would like to see the gift come to fruition during your lifetime or in your estate. There are many options to consider and we would be happy to help answer any questions you might have.

Thank you for your prayers and support of our precious children. You are an important part of the Ranch family and we appreciate your dedication to our kids.

Together we can do great things!

God bless!
