90 Days. Our Next Big Step.
Our Ranch is ready to grow our family, and we want you to be a part! We’re asking our donors to help us fulfill some desperately needed equipment needs at the Ranch, allowing us to set the foundation for future growth.
Our goal is to reach $45,000 to help acquire a tractor, a lawn mower, and support for other minor needs at the ranch.
We will have ongoing updates for you on this page and encourage you to check out the other videos and content below on all that we’re doing!
Investing in a Long Term Impact
If you’ve been involved at Willow Springs Boys Ranch for any amount of time, you know that our goal is to create a home environment where our boys and our supporters can feel like they are a part of a family.
THIS IS HOW WE ARE MAKING AN IMPACT TOGETHER, PROVIDING THESE BOYS WITH A HOME WHERE THEY CAN GROW INTO THE MEN THEY ARE CALLED TO BE!
Why these needs matter.
It’s a simple fact: families need resources to run. If they don’t have those resources, the dynamic completely changes and the entire family feels the weight of that need.
Take a look at the breakdown of what we are fundraising for, and most importantly the “why”.
So What’s the Breakdown?
We are fundraising $45,000 in the next 90 days.
Take a look at the breakdown of what we are fundraising for below.
$18,000 - Tractor
Our first major need is a tractor. This will help us to sustainably support ranch property management and allow us to focus more daily energy on investing in the boys, rather than taking more time to do simple tasks.
This will go to improving the quality of the roads, which are in desperate need. Having a tractor and multiple implements will be beneficial for many tasks at Willow Springs Boys Ranch and Jacob’s Ladder.
$10,000 - Lawn Mower
Due to older mowers, we are spending valuable time on mower repair and maintenance. This makes cutting the grass time-consuming and inefficient. We have the boys help with mowing and property management as a part of their chores, but having unreliable equipment makes maintaining so much property much more difficult and diverts time from investing relationally with the boys.
$12,000 - Home Needs
These funds will help with ongoing needs at the ranch and will go towards supporting the monthly costs of supporting the day-to-day school, home, and personal needs for the boys and their house parents.
$5,000 - Equipment Support
With the use of the tractor and lawn mower come maintenance needs. Having budgeted funds will help with various repairs, fuel costs, insurance and will allow us to keep the equipment we are supporting together in good quality for a long time to come.
What we do at the ranch
What we get to do is an amazing thing. We are grateful for the family that has supported at-risk boys for over 20 years. Thank you for being a part of such an incredible vision.
We look forward to creating an even bigger family in the future!
