Our Yours Humanly 2022 Gift of Schooling Gala® was an amazing night of fun and fundraising! Thank you to those who attended and made the night so special with your presence and participation! For those who could not attend, you were missed, but we do recognize your contributions and support.

 

A special thanks and shout out to all our generous sponsors for supporting our mission, to Juliette Goodrich, KPIX 5, who did a fabulous job as our emcee, and to guest speaker Cherise Khaund, MDUSD School Board, for sharing her kind thoughts about our partnership with the District on behalf of students in need. Thank you, all, for being a part of something very special!

We are pleased to announce that two Yours Humanly scholars in Cambodia have recently passed through our K-12 Scholarship Program and graduated high school, earning their diplomas and joining fellow students in their caps and gowns.

 

Both grads plan to attend college: One plans to study marketing; the other plans to study international communication. Yours Humanly will continue to support these scholars in some capacity as they continue their educational journey and earn their bachelor’s degree.

 

Under our sponsorship, the girls were enrolled in the highly regarded Beltei International School in Phnom Penh. They have now graduated from one of the finest schools in Cambodia, with a level of education that opens many doors for them, allowing them to dream big. And, because Yours Humanly also funded their ESL education, both girls speak English, something they are able to do only because of Yours Humanly’s sponsorship.

 

With your generous support, Yours Humanly transforms lives through the power of education. When we say that together we help children in need achieve better, brighter futures, this is what we mean. Congratulations to our two Yours Humanly graduates!

Thank you most sincerely for your continued support of the work Yours Humanly does providing access to quality education and equitable resources to children desperately in need around the world, lighting their paths toward brighter futures through the power of education.

 

With your generous donations, we provided annual scholarships, uniforms and mid-day meals; computers; STEM and art supplies; and much more to children eager to learn and in need of an opportunity. And we provided relief to children and their families who suffered greatly at the hands of natural disasters.

 

Despite ongoing funding challenges, together we accomplished a great deal in 2021, positively impacting thousands of children. But there is still so much to do, and we can’t do it without you. Here’s how you can help.

 

Giving Tuesday is November 30. As a part of your year-end giving plans, please donate to Yours Humanly on Giving Tuesday or anytime between now and the close of 2021. When you choose Yours Humanly, you are transforming the life of a child in need forever, continuing your personal journey of giving back and being a part of something very special.

Our annual Tee Off for Education golf tournament was held on November 15 at the beautiful Rossmoor Golf Course in Walnut Creek, CA. After a full day of golf under cloudy but dry skies, players were treated to dinner and an awards ceremony. Thank you to our generous sponsors and golfers! No matter their scores at the end of 18 holes, through their participation, our golfers made a profound difference in the lives of children we serve—and that makes them winners on anybody’s scorecard! Throughout the event, we captured fantastic images, which you’ll find on our website and Facebook page.
