Be an advocate for children and youth.

Join our monthly donor program as a founding member of Advocates Children Youth’s Membership Circle!

The idea is simple: Gifts of any amount, given consistently, can collectively make a big difference.

The goal is audacious: to convene 2000 members of the community as ACY Members.

To #PaveTheWay to 2K, and #EquityForAllKids, we need you! 

ACY is on a mission to protect Maryland’s children. That’s why we’ve created the ACY Membership Circle program.  Your membership means uniting with child advocacy professionals and enthusiasts across the Maryland to support research, discovery, innovation, and well-being for all.  Monthly gifts enable our team to expand our presence, our programs, our advocacy, and our impact on behalf of Maryland’s $1.6 million kids. 

Can we count on you to donate the price of a few cups of coffee each month?  You’ll be recognized as a founding ACY Member, gain access to resources, and more importantly you’ll be part of a new community of peers and experts who will collectively “Pave The Way” for Maryland’s children in need through your monthly gifts.


Become a Charter Member.  ACY Members’ gifts are recurring, a sustained commitment made monthly to help ACY advance equity, wellness and opportunity for children, teens, and young adults.  If you prefer to make an equivalent recurring annual, you’ll also qualify for membership.

Together, we’re making a difference.  Your monthly gift strengthens our ability to identify, protect and to serve Maryland children and youth in need, including the homeless, at-risk, vulnerable, immigrant, and the system impacted.

You’re making an impact

No matter which level of support you choose, you are a valued and indispensable part of our community.  Your monthly membership supports the programs, events, research, coalitions, and operations of ACY, strengthening our ability to identify, protect, and to serve Maryland children and youth in need. These unrestricted funds will be used wherever the need is greatest.
