How do matching funds work?
EYFO can maximize GIVEBIG's potential with your help; when you secure matching funds from your company, you will double the amount given. Please consider checking with your company to see if they also will match your donation.
How will EYFO use the GIVEBIG Funds?
We are raising funds to provide scholarships to our College and Career Readiness students who will graduate from high school this year. We are also raising funds to help furnish our new facility, EYFO Leadership Enrichment Academy, opening at the end of this year. We will use 100% of your generous donation to fund these endeavors.
Testimony - 2022 Alumni Caleb Headen
Last year, prior to being awarded EYFO College and Career Readiness scholarship, Caleb Headen shared, “EYFO helped me during challenging times of my life. When I transferred school districts in the 3rd grade, they helped me adjust to my new school with transportation and tutoring in their after-school program. Having tutors made a huge difference in my grades and made me feel safe as I sometimes learned differently than others. Because of EYFO, I’ve traveled to California, New York, Washington D.C., and other East Coast areas through their college tours. I cannot express my gratitude and gratitude for EYFO providing me with experiences some kids can only dream of. I am extremely blessed, and I know this scholarship can help pay for my college tuition.” Thanks to you, Caleb received a $3,500 scholarship to Seattle University.
