YSL Philanthropy: Charity...Hunger...Humanitarian
YSL's goal is to raise $2000 or more for each organization through fundraising events and monetary donations. We encourage members, their family and friends, church members and co-workers to help us meet our goals.
Each organization is 501 (c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service, making all donations Tax-deductible. Donations can be made directly to the organizations through their website on a YSL page. This provides receipts for donations made to the organization on behalf of our fundraising event.
