On behalf of all the children, thank you for considering a gift to Kurn Hattin Home. As a charitable organization, Kurn Hattin Homes depends on private support to fulfill its mission. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and your gift is tax deductible as allowed by law. Here are some ways to give:
The Annual Fund
Kurn Hattin’s Annual Fund helps support the many everyday aspects vital to running a 280-acre campus and caring for 100 children year round. Clothing, food, a cozy cottage to live in…these are just a few of the ways your Annual Fund gift helps. Make your donation online, either as a one-time or recurring donation.
Donor Advised Fund
