Advancement and Community Relations
The Advancement and Community Relations department was created to promote community awareness of and support for our efforts to advance teaching and learning in Yellow Springs Schools. The primary goal of the department is to bring financial resources to the district that can be used to support initiatives that align with our vision and mission. This will be accomplished by pursuing government and foundation grants, as well as donations from our parents, community members, and alumni.

On Tuesday, November 28, YS Schools will participate in #YSGivingTuesday, a local version of the global day of giving that kicks off the charitable season. All donations made to YS Schools on November 28 will qualify us for matching grant funds from the YS Community Foundation and from several generous lead donors.  Visit and take advantage of this matching gift opportunity before it's too late!
