MEDFORD, Ore. -- An anonymous donor has given a $30,000.00 match donation to the Rogue Valley Youth For Christ. They will match one-time donations and any sponsorship donations for an entire year.

Bud Amundsen, the Executive Director for Youth For Christ says this same donor has given money for seven years in a row and always requests to be kept anonymous. The outreach program relies on donations to fund their annual budget. 
"Our budget is $884,000.00 and all of that comes from the community. A little bit comes from foundations, at least 80% of it comes from individuals, and businesses in the community that care about kids," said Amundsen.

The money is dispersed throughout all of their programs throughout the valley. Right now they have 5 buildings located in Eagle Point, North Medford, South Medford, Phoenix, and Central Point. 

If you are wanting to make a one-time donation or sponsor a child you can donate by visiting the Rogue Valley Youth For Christ website.
