Young Friends of Yellowstone (Y-FY) is the Academy’s primary engagement channel to reach young professionals in their thirties and under, as well as an opportunity to access corporate donations. Y-FY has more than doubled its membership since its inception in 2009. New members should bring an interest and ability to friend and fundraise in support of Yellowstone’s mission, a passion and enthusiasm towards fulfilling the mission, and an element of diversity to the membership body.

We will have multiple events and occasions for our young professionals to learn more about Yellowstone and even get involved at the school. Our biggest fundraiser for the Y-FY group is our annual Polo Event which takes place at the end of April. Last year we raised over $79k and (with your help!) hope to top it this year.

Annual membership dues are $50 per person, $75 per couple and $250 per company. Membership dues go towards the Academy’s Snack Pack Program and The Art of Reading Literacy Program. Through Y-FY, the Academy will continue to nourish each student physically and intellectually.
