Why give to YTF?
We never lose sight of how one person’s contribution can change lives.
A simple action that takes just a few seconds can help someone half the world away build a better future for themselves and their community.
We depend on your donations and the support of our partners to ensure day-to-day needs of on-the-ground programs and our long-term mission are adequately funded and able to grow.
100% of your donation goes to the field
Your investment directly supports our programs. This makes sure each dollar goes further, supporting what we call “The 100% Model”: 100% of donations you make go directly to the field. (P.S. We cover administrative costs through grants)
What your investment supports
Specific programs needs, such as:
- Recruiting local staff and volunteers
- Outreach to let the community know about the program and how it can help
- Classroom space and materials, including technology
- Tracking of progress and impact
- Staff and resources for identifying new areas of need and crafting strategies to serve them
