Funding Needs for The Rady Center


Thanks to the generosity of Ernest and Evelyn Rady, every dollar The Salvation Army secures for the Rady Center up to $35 million will be matched by the Radys. This will help ensure the long-term needs of The Salvation Army’s homeless programs and facilities far into the future.

Construction Funding

The Salvation Army must raise $100 million to realize the construction of The Rady Center. Naming opportunities will be available. We want to begin construction as soon as we can because the need is so great. However, it is a policy of The Salvation Army that construction cannot begin until 80% of the funds have been secured. 

Program Funding Opportunities

Operation and Staffing Fund This fund will ensure that The Rady Center will be able to fulfill and maintain its comprehensive support and wrap around services for clients in need, at-risk or experiencing homelessness.

Social Enterprise Fund This fund will ensure that The Rady Center will be able to operate and fulfill its social enterprise goals. The fund will help clients overcome barriers to economic mobility by providing tuition and certification assistance, rent and utility assistance and transportation assistance. This will enable them to build new skills that will help them to live securely and independently.
