Make a Donation

As a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, Lambs Farm receives funding from the State of Illinois for some of our services. However, the programs that provide for a well-rounded and full life – recreation and transportation, to name a few – are not covered by state funding. Lambs Farm realizes the importance of such services and continues to offer them through the support of our donors. We realize our supporters trust us to be good stewards of their investments, and we welcome the opportunity to show just exactly how our donors make a difference.
