Get Involved



I have been supporting scholarship programs for many years. It is one of the most productive uses of my philanthropic dollars. It provides me with more satisfaction than almost anything else I do.

There is nothing more inspiring and uplifting than hearing the stories of young student lives turned around by the quality of their education. With scholarship support, families can take their children from failing schools and place them in successful schools. And that will make all the difference.

I am happy to help make that happen.

Yankee Institute Board of Directors

Generous people across our state support many worthy causes and principles. But nothing can change the trajectory of a human life as quickly and permanently as providing a quality education for a child who is suffering without one.

Not only does parent choice in education free children to reach their God-given potential, but the downstream effects of the scholarships provided to these children also are powerful.

Students who receive a quality education can live lives of dignity and purpose, often breaking the cycle of generational poverty.

An education is the gift that keeps on giving, and we invite you to be part of this wonderful opportunity to create lasting change.
