Connecting the next generation of youth leaders The Alpha Youth Collective exists to bring youth leaders together as we envision a new kind of future in youth ministry.

Join us as we gather in multiple cities across the country to build relationships, create healthy culture, and share our stories and experiences. At AYC we will grow together through practical exercises, be inspired by engaging speakers, and rely on the Holy Spirit as we look toward the future of youth ministry. Whether you’re an Alpha Youth veteran or have never heard of Alpha Youth, this youth leader event is for you (and your team).

FAQ

$20, which gains you entry to the event, plus lunch.

Each city will be a little different. We try to gather enough youth workers so that new relationships can be formed, but not so many that we lose the closeknit vibe.

Yes! We love when groups attend together.

Maybe one day. We’ve got the tech wizards on it to take care of this in the future, but for now, one transaction per city is the way to go.

Youth workers of all kinds are welcomed at the Alpha YTH Collective. This includes church staff, volunteers, small group leaders, nonprofit workers, parachurch ministry workers, the grandparent who’s interested in serving the next generation at your church, and everyone in between.

Each city will host the Alpha YTH Collective from 10am-4pm local time, the day of the event.

As long as you’re canceling more than 72 hours before the start of your registered event, we’ll get you taken care of. Just contact our youth team and we’ll process your refund. Cancelations within 72 hours of your registered event are not eligible for refund due to food purchases that must be placed ahead of time to local restaurants and caterers.

Name Alpha USA in your Will

If you are writing your will for the first time, revising your existing plans, or own investment or retirement accounts or life insurance policies, please consider including Alpha USA among your charitable beneficiaries. In your will, you can name Alpha USA the beneficiary of a set amount, a percentage of your estate, or a percentage of your residual estate after you have taken care of your loved ones. If you have already written your will, it is usually very easy to create a codicil, or amendment, to your will. A codicil with specific changes, witnessed and notarized, is typically accepted into probate with the original will. If you need specific language to include in your will, contact the Vice President of Development at 1-800-362-5742 or kylewallace@alphausa.org.

Annuities and Other Life Income Gifts

Alpha USA can help you establish a charitable gift annuity that will pay you or a loved one an annual income for life. The remainder of the investment, when you no longer need it, goes to Alpha USA.

If you are a younger donor, a deferred gift annuity can help you plan for your retirement. By investing now and deferring the start of income payments until you reach retirement age, your initial investment has more time to grow.

In either case, the donor receives a tax deduction for part of the initial investment, plus a guaranteed revenue stream that is partially tax-free. Alpha USA receives the remainder. Each charitable gift annuity is unique to the circumstances of the donor. To learn more, discuss your options, or receive a customized annuity illustration, please contact the Vice President of Development at 1-800-362-5742 or kylewallace@alphausa.org.

IRA and Stock Gifts

Owners of Individual Retirement Accounts must begin taking Required Minimum Distributions at age 70 1⁄2. After that, a permanent tax provision allows you to make gifts to Alpha USA and other qualified charities directly from your IRA. These gifts are subtracted from your Required Minimum Distributions and do not count as revenue on your taxes. Because this type of gift actually reduces your income, it offers tax benefits even if you do not itemize your deductions.

Giving stock directly to Alpha USA may allow you to increase your gift and your tax deduction. When you give stock shares, you generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value, which may be more than your original investment. Giving stock may offer significant advantage over giving cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds.

Please contact Finance at 1-800-362-5742 and let us know the type of stock and the number of shares you plan to donate. This will allow us to properly track your donation and ensure that it is transferred correctly and that you are properly credited and acknowledged.
