SAYM Endowment Fund

In 2015, SAYM invested $25,000 with the Akron Community Foundation  for the purpose of creating an Endowment Fund to provide higher education scholarships for SAYM students. Our long term goals are to increase the principle to $100,000 and to provide a minimum of $5,000 annually by 2020. Short term, we endeavor to begin providing scholarships in 2017. Please consider investing in the future of the SAYM youth by giving the gift of education.

Individuals may invest directly into the SAYM Endowment Fund with cash donation, donation direct from your retirement asset, life insurance asset, or even closely held stock. Follows are three options to make a donation.
