This month-long campaign focused on the future of Youth to Youth emphasizes the importance of our alumni in sustaining Youth to Youth into the future, so the program can continue to impact others like it did for us, for generations to come. Our alumni represent so much more than Y2Y’s past. Our alumni are the shoulders upon which we stand, a network of support for the work we do today, and a potentially powerful force in ensuring the future of this life-changing program.
During the month of April, the Y2Y Future Fund Council will match up to $2,500 in donations made to the Y2Y Future Fund!
The Youth to Youth Future Fund is an organizational endowment held at The Columbus Foundation, created to ensure the sustainability of Youth to Youth for generations to come. The fund started with a seed investment of $10,000 from CompDrug’s Board of Trustees, and a legacy gift from alumni Ray and Kris Lozano. Today, because of a council of alumni, the fund has grown seven times to its market value of over $70,000!
The Youth to Youth Future Fund Council is a council made up of Y2Y alumni who raise dollars and awareness for the fund, as well as providing guidance and advice on the use of the endowment.
When you give a recurring gift of just $10 per month to the Y2Y Future Fund, you are joining a “family group” of alumni who are leaving a legacy for the future of Youth to Youth. Why give monthly? Your recurring monthly gift to the Y2Y Future Fund is:
It adds up over time. A gift of $10 per month is $120 each year that Y2Y can count on. This amount would send one student to a middle school program each year!
The power of our “family group” of givers is strong! If we had 100 alumni giving $10 per month, that’s $12,000 per year of revenue for Youth to Youth!
This endowment fund is wisely invested, so it grows over time. A gift to the Y2Y Future Fund is an “investment” in Youth to Youth!
Not ready to commit to a monthly gift? A one-time gift to the Future Fund is just as meaningful, and will contribute to leaving a legacy for Youth to Youth.
Our goal is to reach 30 monthly donors by April 30th!
