Youth Enrichment Services

Leadership Giving

Through a unique and impactful sports-based program model, YES serves 1,600 Boston youth annually and provides them with year-round opportunities to experience the outdoors, build self-confidence, and develop into young leaders.  We couldn’t do this important work without the support of the organization’s leadership donors who generously choose to make an investment in YES.  Please email [email protected] to learn more about the Leadership Donor Programs outlined below.

1968 Circle

The 1968 Circle recognizes a community of philanthropic individuals and families who strongly believe in the YES mission to inspire and challenge young people.  1968 Circle members contribute $1,000 or more annually.

Richard & Mary Williams Legacy Society

The Richard & Mary Williams Legacy Society recognizes donors who make a gift to YES by making a provision within their estate planning. The goal of this program is to provide a future, dependable resource of funding to help fulfill the mission of YES. When individuals choose to leave a donation in their will or trust, name YES as a beneficiary of their retirement plan or an insurance policy, or make other planned gift provisions, they are making a special gift that will have a long-term impact on the organization.  Please let us know if you have included YES in your estate plans so that we can celebrate your thoughtfulness as a member of the Richard & Mary Williams Legacy Society.

Pathway to Success Circle

The Pathway to Success Circle recognizes donors who make a recurring gift to YES by making a monthly or quarterly gift through their checking account deduction or recurring charge to a credit card. Donating throughout the year is a convenient way to include a gift to YES into your personal budget.
