Welcome to Yolo Community Foundation!
Founded in 2001 by a group of community-minded individuals throughout Yolo County, Yolo Community Foundation (YCF) promotes philanthropy by serving as a public foundation through which: 1) community members pursue their own charitable goals; 2) local nonprofits benefit from YCF programs and events; and 3) youth learn the meaning of community involvement and service. As a community foundation, we lead the campaign to create a county-wide culture of service and giving.

Yolo Youth Service Award Scholarships 2015
Yolo Community Foundation (YCF), an affiliate of Sacramento Region Community Foundation (SRCF) announces that guidelines and application process for the 2015 Yolo Youth Service Awards (YoYoSA) are now available online at www.yolocf.org and www.sacregcf.org. Applications are due April 10, 2015 and must be completed online. YoYoSA awards will be announced by May 8, 2015 and awardees will be recognized at a reception hosted by Yolo Community Foundation in May.
The YoYoSA program is designed to promote and reward Yolo County youth volunteering with local nonprofit organizations, and encourages Yolo County nonprofits to engage with youth volunteers.
YCF seeks applications from high school seniors who have volunteered with a recognized Yolo County nonprofit at least 60 hours during their junior and/or senior years of high school. YoYoSA student awardees will receive a $1000 scholarship to support post-high school education, which may include college, vocational, or technical school. A $500 grant will be awarded to the nonprofit agency sponsoring each YoYoSA student scholarship winner.
Yolo Community Foundation strives to boost local philanthropy by serving donors, nonprofits, and youth in the Yolo County area, and is proud to recognize tomorrow’s leaders in local philanthropy through the YoYoSA program.
