GiveBIG promo

What's better than helping youth and families? Helping even more youth and families because your donation goes further.

That's what dozens of supporters did for YES during GiveBIG, the Seattle Foundation's one-day giving event. Every year, the foundation stretches every donation made through its website, helping local nonprofits like YES do even more good.

GiveBIG was May 3, and generous donors gave enough to fund a year of intensive counseling for two young people. Thank you so much!

More than 1,000 community leaders and youth advocates turned out for YES' annual Invest in Youth breakfast on March 24. 

Together, generous donors raised about $600,000 to help kids and families heal from depression, substance abuse, grief, trauma and other emotional crises, as well as fund services that prevent issues before they start.

Speakers included Steve Raible of KIRO7, Brad Tilden of Alaska Airlines, youth advocate Danielle Tilden, Jermaine Kearse of the Seattle Seahawks, and basketball legend Lenny Wilkens. Youth speakers also shared their stories of struggle, and how YES has helped them recover. 

See the Invest in Youth webpage for a full wrap-up.
