How You Can Participate
We invite you to become a Friend of YSS or a member of the Daedalus/Icarus Society. Your gifts will help us continue to serve youth and families throughout Central Iowa.
Please consider becoming a benefactor to the youth in your community by giving to the YSS Foundation. Your support will help the next generation soar to a brighter future.
YSS appreciates planned gifts, such as bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, or charitable lead trusts. Please contact our Planned Giving Officer or your financial advisor for more information about this way of helping:
The YSS Memorial Circle was established to honor loved ones in whose memory gifts are made to YSS which equal or exceed $1,000. Listing their names is one way to show our appreciation for the thoughtfulness of family & friends.
