Funding factory

This is a program that by donating and recycling you old electronics, ink cartridges, cameras, cell phones, etc. to us we can send them in and receive a donation from them for your old items! 

Sponsor a child

While we try to make PowerUP! as affordable as possible, sometimes the cost is still unmanageable for some families, especially those with multiple children attending. For just $35, you can send one child to PowerUP! for a month. With the help of sponsors, we can make sure that every child can attend, no matter the situation.

Ways to help


We are always looking for volunteers!!! It can be as little or as often as you'd like and can involve anything from working with the students to administrative tasks. You may download a volunteer application directly below this posting!


NMCYF and the PowerUP! Program would not be possible without the help and support of our communuty! Contributions may be sent to:

How Does AmazonSmile work?

When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer's selected charitable organization.

What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?

The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation creatied by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
