It Pays to Give


All donations of more than $100 are eligible for a 50% Missouri tax credit.

Donations to Mother’s Refuge pay off in the changed lives of vulnerable young mothers and their babies. They also pay you back in practical ways at tax time.

Mother’s Refuge, a state-licensed maternity home, has been a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization since 1987. All donations are tax-deductible, and you will receive a receipt for all donations for tax purposes.

Remember, Mother’s Refuge is not affiliated with any large organization that underwrites our operation. We depend solely on the generosity of our many friends, businesses and corporations that graciously support us. We thank you in advance for your contribution to help provide a positive environment for homeless pregnant and parenting teens and young moms.
