Grace Sander was in 8th grade when she realized that Pass It Along would give her the opportunity to change the world. At Pass It Along, Grace has become a member of Service Corps, faithfully served at Tilly’s Kids and SCARC Bowling and has completed over 300 volunteer hours.
After her first meeting Grace immediately felt accepted. She fell in love with the idea of helping others and making a difference using her own unique talents and skills. Just like Grace, our teenagers are discovering their greatness and turning their ideas of change into reality.
“Pass It Along saved my life. When I was at my lowest point, this program gave me so much perspective and something to wake up for every morning. I have made some of my best friends, mentors and memories through Pass It Along and have been given so many incredible opportunities. It has become my identity. Pass It Along always finds a way to make me feel that my talents and gifts are important.” – Grace Sander
It is Pass It Along's vision that every teenager will have the tools and opportunities to embrace themselves and their power to make a difference in the world.
We need your help in furthering our mission and turning our vision into reality by making a tax-deductible contribution to our Annual Appeal Campaign goal of $25,000. This amount will help deliver free programs to thousands of local teenagers in our area.
On behalf of Pass It Along and all those we serve, may you and your families have a healthy and happy holiday season and New Year!

Payroll Deductions & Matching Gifts
Many employers will allow for you to contribute directly from your paycheck and some even match what you are contributing!
We can work directly with your HR Department to implement this program for your company. We can do the employee information sessions and coordinate all enrollment forms. Deductions are taken from your paycheck after taxes and sent to us directly by your employer, either via check or direct deposit.
Many employers will match donations done by their employees to non profits. It's an immediate and easy way to perhaps double your contribution to our programs! This can be done by completing a form in your HR department and providing proof of contributions, which we will be happy to provide for you!
