How is Bambinos funded?
 
Bambinos is staffed entirely with volunteers. However, even without paying any salaries, our 2023 operations cost was roughly $83,150.00. It’s pretty amazing when you consider how many families we reach. We depend entirely on private donations! Our funds come in several ways. During the past year, we have received monetary and in-kind donations from the following:
 
  • Bambinos Donors

    • Supporters - any monthly gift up to $49 or less

    •  Sustainers - a monthly gift of $50-$99

    • Builders - a monthly gift of $100-$149

    • Dreamers - a monthly gift of $150 or more

Why should I support the mission of Bambinos?
Are you looking for a way to support Bambinos?

We are often asked if we take donations of various items. The answer to that question is, “YES!”
 

 
Here's a list of the items we always need:
 
  • Diapers
    (Especially larger sizes and pull-ups, OK if not a complete package)

  • Wipes

  • Formula (all types, no expired food, please)

  • Receiving blankets

  • Hygiene items

  • Safety items (outlet covers, drawer latches, door knob covers)

  • Car seats (new only, please)

  • Baby gates (new only, please)

  • Funds for any of the above items

In addition to these items, we are always in need of people who can pledge to send us a monthly gift that we can put toward our expenses. We call these wonderful people Bambinos Supporters, Sustainers, Builders, and Dreamers. A pledge for as little as $5 per month can still make a big difference.

Our hope is to use money raised to directly bless our community by funneling it right back into car seats, diapers, wipes, etc. This means that we still need monthly supporters to help us pay for our rent and utilities. Did you know it costs over $2300 per month just to keep our doors open? Are you able to help us? If so, please select the Donate button on the right. You can make a one-time donation or set up a recurring monthly debit.

Thank you so much for supporting Bambinos!
