Your Support is Crucial

Donors are vital to Young Life at the local area and regional levels. Because Young Life areas are financially supported solely at the local level, donors’ financial gifts account for all of an area's budget and part of a region's budget. Your donation helps areas hire and train staff and provide essential administrative support to the area. Your contributions also support operating expenses such as salaries and other ministry costs and can help send kids to Young Life camps.


Capernaum Projects across the world are responsible to raise their own yearly budgets. We achieve our budget primarily through private donations. Donors like you are vital to Young Life Capernaum. Without adequate financial support, we are unable to properly service the San Jose community.

The Voices of Capernaum

“Capernaum is the only place Heather can go without me. Club is so great because it offers a safe environment for teenagers to attend without having their parents right next to them. How many 17 year olds want to be around their parents all the time? Capernaum is amazing and Heather adores it. It has brightened her life.”
-Vicki Hendrickson, Parent of a special needs young adult

“Capernaum provided my son with a way to meet friends and to enjoy people. This club lights up his life.”
-Linda Pappas, parent of a special needs child

Our work could not be done without your financial support. We are grateful for your gift to Young Life Capernaum in San Jose (CA-16).

Thank you for helping us reach generations of teens who desperately need to hear a message of hope.
