The Navigators
(Boys Home's Legacy Giving Club)

Welcome to "The Navigators" webpage!

Exclusive membership in The Navigators, our Legacy Giving Club, is offered to those stalwart donors, who include Boys Home in their estate plans. As a member, you will receive special recognition for your thoughtfulness and generosity. Unless you instruct us otherwise, your gift will be made part of our trust fund for the boys and will go on in perpetuity providing shelter, food, clothing, training and education to boys, who are on their way to becoming strong, just and respectful young men.

Since1906, Boys Home of Virginia has saved thousands of boys' lives. That would not have happened without families and individuals like you. Please remember: At Boys Home it all happens Because of you!

Through a bequest, trust, will or other planned giving instrument, the below listed individuals and families have taken bold, meaningful steps to safeguard Boys Home's future. They are listed alphabetically.
