“I know firsthand what investments in Wyman meant for me. I know it takes resources to continue these programs. As long as I’m in a capacity to do so, I will always donate. I’ll never be able to match the investment Wyman made in me.”
-Ametra Harris, Wyman alumna and donor
Teens have the will. Help give them the way.
Wyman teens are growing to be the compassionate, capable, and connected leaders our region and nation need. And they need us all to stand with them. When you give to Wyman, you are equipping young people with the skills and knowledge they need to solve the problems of the future. Your donations have a direct impact on our work, allowing us to grow the number of teens we serve, deepen the supports we offer, and sustain successful programs.
Now, More Than Ever
Human connection is a critical part of the Wyman experience. Wyman staff are committed to supporting teens as they navigate the world in the midst of this pandemic and respond to the racial injustices in our systems. In a time where teens may feel overwhelmed and disconnected, your donations allow us to continue programs that build life skills, develop a positive sense of self, and make healthy connections with others.
Our work continues in new ways, as we adjust to meet the changing needs of our young people. Now as always, Wyman staff are listening actively to our teens through phone calls, video chats, and social media. Care packages, FaceTime, and Google Classroom provide space for connection and empowerment, and make sure our teens feel supported. Even when we can’t be with them in person, we ensure Wyman teens are healthy, safe, and receiving the supports they need. We have promises to keep to our young people, and they need our support now more than ever.
Thank you for supporting Wyman and investing in the Wyman teens who are leading today and preparing for tomorrow.

The CARES Act of 2020 changes charitable giving incentives for contributions made in 2020. It creates a new above-the-line deduction for total charitable contributions of up to $300. The incentive applies to cash contributions made in 2020 and can be claimed on tax forms next year. It also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60% of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the law raises the annual limit from 10% to 25%. Please consult your tax advisor about how this can benefit you in 2020.
