Description
The Yolo Community Foundation's primary program is to support individuals and organizations to establish charitable funds in the form of donor-advised funds, field-of-interest funds, scholarship funds, and designated non-profit funds to create a stable and growing pool of funds to ensure the important work of community organizations. These funds are then professionally invested and managed with the support of our partner, the Sacramento Region Community Foundation.

Program Successes
Last year, we hosted many educational site visits, round table discussions, panels, and networking opportunities for our fund-holders and Yolo County philanthropists. These opportunities give space to philanthropists to engage with one another and their local community.
Description
The Yolo Community Foundation has established a Community Impact Fund which to date has been used to support local nonprofits that promote volunteerism among youth, in association with our YoYoSA program. In 2020, we plan to expand our efforts with grants to non-profits engaged in important community work that serves identified needs and promote community service. YCF received a substantial grant from the Buck Foundation that will be re-granted to organizations in in the field of education from 2017-2020. Through Donor Advised Funds, fundholders create grants that are distributed directly to the chosen nonprofit.
Budget
$500,000
Program Successes
Local non-profits are encouraged to work with youth leaders and support those students in their future endeavors. This year, we are making over $50,000 in grants to ensure that the 2020 Census counts everyone in Yolo County, including those traditionally under counted. Our grantees include RISE, the Yolo Food Bank, and the Yolo County Children's Alliance.
