Sami's Fundraising Page for YCORE:
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for YCORE!
YCORE is an nonprofit organization that seeks to mobilize the next gerneration to engage with social impact through providing them opportunities to partner with San Francisco nonprofits and teaching them skills such as advocacy and fundraising.
Through YCORE, I have been able to connect with Back on My Feet (BoMF), a nonprofit organization that combats homelessness through running and workforce development programming. I have worked with BoMF to automate their volunteer sign-up process and post their opportuntities on volunteer sites to help them reach a broader pool of volunteers and improve their retention. This experinece has enabled me to give back to my community and challenged me to seek more opportunities to donate my time and talents.
In order to help YCORE expand their programs, I am fundraising $1,500. Your donations will go towards educating 100+ participants in 2020 and funding 20+ impactful projects with SF nonprofits.
Thank you for your time and consideration. If you would like to donate through a different method or have a corporate match program, please reach out to me directly at 913-575-1084 or email@example.com.

YCore mobilizes young professionals to advance community-based social impact by teaching them to deploy their time, money, skills, and influence as partners and advocates.
We envision a world where local community members—regardless of age, background, and socioeconomic status—learn from one another, advocate for each other, and work hand in hand to advance equity and social justice. As today’s young professionals, we are hungry to make a difference on issues we care about, but many of us lack the tools, knowledge, and connections to be effective agents of change. We want to support equitable solutions to systemic problems, not just as a reaction to social media and current events, but as part of our daily lives. Positively impacting our communities is not a task for the future. It’s an imperative today. Community-based organizations work hard to address inequities in our society, but though they are experts in their fields, they often lack access to diverse resources that allow them to effectively pursue their missions. We have the opportunity to leverage our energy, skills, and networks alongside those already working towards sustainable positive change. We seek to be neither consultants nor saviors, but partners and amplifiers of the voices most impacted by social, environmental, and economic challenges.
In YCore's four-month, after-work program, fellows partner with community-based nonprofits to work on a strategic volunteer project. During this time, they attend bi-weekly workshops on design thinking, nonprofit fundraising, and the systems that contribute to inequity in their communities. Our programming is designed to help fellows build the knowledge, connections, and foundation they need to reach the next stage of their impact journeys. Our alumni stay involved as volunteers, associate board members, donors, and advocates, and many transition careers to mission-driven or nonprofit organizations with the help of the YCore community.
Your donation is critical to our continued work mobilizing the next generation of partners and advocates. Thank you!
