No child should be bought and sold for sex.
StolenYouth is unique in the state of Washington in that we are guided by three pillars we believe are essential to ending child sex trafficking – prevention through education and buyer deterrents, connecting victims to services, and empowering the survivors of trafficking through education, job training and other essential tools for success.
Your investment into our work will help us continue our collaborations with other nonprofits, law enforcement and government to ultimately end the buying and selling of some of vulnerable children for sex. Thank you for supporting our work and thank you for caring about one of the most devastating human rights issues of our time.
Your donations WILL make a difference.
THE GINNY MEISENBACH SURVIVOR SUPPORT FUND
In loving memory of our co-founder and dear friend, the Ginny Meisenbach, StolenYouth has established the Ginny Meisenbach Survivor Support Fund, to carry on Ginny’s vision of supporting individual survivors through small but important grants. Visit the bottom of this page to make a small donation of $25, $50 or $100 to the Ginny Fund.
Ginny understood that even after sex trafficking survivors leave the life, they face many challenges along the path to recovery. The costs associated with these challenges require only small donations–for example:
- $50 pays for a doctor’s appointment.
- $75 pays for a GED test.
- $100 pays for a job interview outfit.
- $125 pays for a new pair of glasses.
Though small, this support is life-changing. Through our coalition partners and community advocates, survivors can apply for small grants from the Ginny Fund to help them take these steps towards full and healthy lives.
100 percent of every contribution to the Fund goes directly towards grants for survivors.* StolenYouth receives applications from survivors on a rolling basis, and at the discretion of the Board, grants are awarded first to those who demonstrate the greatest and most urgent need.
*In the event that the Fund’s account balance exceeds $25,000, the StolenYouth Board may at its own discretion direct any excess amount to its general funds, to be distributed in accordance with its current distribution policies.
