How will EYFO use the GIVEBIG Funds?
We will use your generous donation to fund our college scholarship/building for the future fund.
EYFO “Oh the Places You Will Go” Auction
Thanks to you, our 2017 “Oh the Places You Will Go Auction” raised $14,000. Because of your generous bids we create our first scholarship fund (EYFO College Scholarship). Of the $14,000 we applied $10,000 to the scholarship fund. The rest of the funds went to the educational trip to New York City and Washington DC, covering some of the transportation and housing expenses for the 23 youth who went on that trip.
EYFO “Capital Campaign Building for the Future” Auction
We are very excited about our next auction in 2019 and look forward to seeing you there.
Our vision and passion is to increase the number of students we can accept into our program, changing lives one child at a time. To do so we have launched a capital campaign to raise funds for a building where we can expand our outreach programs and serve more of our community. The auction will be a key part of this effort.
