Board of Directors
The YBF Board of Directors thoroughly reviews each grant proposal that comes its way. It spends hours on the evaluation process and does site visits, phone interviews, etc. – ensuring the necessary details to decide which grants to fund is complete. Each application is based on how many people will be affected by the funds. These are not easy decisions and all of the applicants have a worthy cause. When you have finite resources you must perform a detailed analysis about how organizations will spend the money and about where the greatest needs lie. Our Board takes this process to heart. The goal is to make a BIG impact on a small number of children’s charities each year.
