Donate to GYS

GYS is donor funded!

GYS is a 501(c)3 non-profit that relies entirely on the generosity of civic and corporate donors for its financial support. Donations are a great way to help GYS provide our participants with educational programs, technology, and more. Your donation can be easily made via PayPal. We thank you for support!

(When making a donation, please select GYS or SNAP in the drop-down menu.)


Participate, Sponsor or Volunteer

GYS relies on volunteer work from good people like you! Whether your talent is cooking, helping with homework, sewing, sports, photography, cartooning, drawing or helping young people discover and explore different cultures, we invite you to share your interests with our GYS community.

Sign up to sponsor a SNAP dinner!

Provide a warm delicious dinner for 25 people on any Tuesday of the month. Whether it's homemade or catered, SNAP participants would be grateful for the meal! Please email the director for more information.

Do you have a talent?
