yli’s Policy on Donations

We welcome donations of any kind from funding streams that are aligned with our values. We seek partners and allies to our movement: individuals and entities that believe in our youth and are striving to do their part to make the world a more equitable place, not just by contributing their resources to our youth-led work, but by living out these values in their own workplaces.

We do not accept funding from foundations, individuals, or other entities that acquire their wealth by producing, promoting, selling, or investing in the following: 

  • Alcohol 
  • Tobacco
  • Sugary-sweet beverages
  • Cannabis
  • Gambling or Casinos
  • Check Cashing
  • Private Prisons
  • Weapons
  • Fossil Fuels
  • Human Rights Violations (e.g. Employing Slave Labor/Human Trafficking, Violating Indigenous Land Rights, Reinforcing Racially Discriminatory Policies)
