Come help us in our mission in restoring hope and rebuilding relationships


Do you want to make a bequest to Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center? Below we have listed the language you can use for your gift. Many grateful families, former residents, friends, Wernle employees and retirees have provided for Wernle Youth & Family as part of their estate plans.

Bequests enable Wernle to provide the best care possible for the children we serve. In turn, this care can help provide for a better and brighter future for hundreds of children. Help make that future brighter future possible!


Suggested language for bequests: "I give, devise and bequeath the sum of $ or % of my estate to, Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center, Inc., an Indiana nonprofit organization, to be used at the discretion of the Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center, Inc. Board of Directors."

Should you wish to designate your gift for a specific purpose we strongly recommend that you contact us to discuss the restriction to make sure that we are able to honor your intentions.


Restricted gifts should include the following language: "If at some future date, circumstances at Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center, Inc. change so that the uses and purposes for which these funds have been designated are no longer possible or permissible or are in conflict with the policies of the Board of Directors, then the Board of Directors may, at its sole discretion, determine the permissible use most closely related to that identified by the testator and consistent with the testator's general interests and charitable intent in supporting Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center."

We depend on the generosity of people like you, and financial gifts are always needed and appreciated. Throughout the year we run a variety of fund drives and campaigns. We depend on our donors to help us perform our mission and to offer high quality tours and programs.


Won't you give a gift of hope today?
