Summer Fund Fact

In 2017, the Summer Fund allocated $980,000 to support over 20,000 disadvantaged and at-risk youth, youth in homeless shelters, and those facing housing insecurities to take part in summer camping, access to cultural and arts activities, and job opportunities for the summer.

Our Impact

I am writing to let you know that my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her camp experience last week! Jane is a “slow-to-warm-up” kind of child, so it was especially wonderful to see her positively beaming at the end of each day and telling us all about her camp experiences, singing songs, and showing us her projects each evening. My husband and I are thankful to her counselors and to all of the staff for making it such a great week for her!

The Summer Fund provides 60% of the total number of groups we serve for our summer programs, which yields 35% of our total participants and 40% of our participant fees. The impact of the Summer Fund on YES’s Outdoor Adventure Program is substantial. It provides the opportunity for more than 250 participants to receive introductory, one-day outdoor experiential education excursions, which we hope will leave them yearning to come back for more.
