“Life is local. This gift is meant to enhance YCF’s flexibility to meet community needs impacting all areas of local lives. It is my sincere hope that others in the North Central region will see the value of giving back to our communities with minimum restrictions. Together much can be accomplished.”
– Anonymous Donor
Through the generosity of an anonymous donor who believes in YCF’s mission and that we all have the power to create positive change, your donation to the following funds will be matched dollar for dollar, now through December 31, 2022, or until the fundraising goals are met:
YCF IMPACT Fund
This is an unrestricted fund, meaning there are no restrictions on the charitable purposes that may be used within YCF’s service area.
- Donations of any amount up to a total maximum of $900,000 to the YCF IMPACT Fund will be matched.
- Gifts of $10,000 and greater may create an endowed fund in honor or memory of loved ones.
