“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” – Maya Angelou

Launching into the Next 40 Years

For 40 years, AYS has helped families go further in life by providing kids with the academic and social-emotional support they need outside of the school day, while also allowing parents the freedom to focus on their career and life goals. The past four decades have been an unforgettable journey, and this journey certainly would not have been possible without our generous supporters. Your donation will directly contribute to the Ellen Clippinger Fund, which enables low-income, working families to send their kids to AYS programs with the assistance of scholarships. Your support will help AYS set the stage for the next 40 years and ensure that we can continue empowering families and exploring uncharted territories with them as we go.

In honor of our founding year, 1980, donors who donate $1,980 will join The 1980 Club! Members of The 1980 Club will receive a special gift box full of limited edition treasures to commemorate 40 years of AYS, including a keepsake from an AYS student and a ticket to AYS’ 2021 Lights On Luncheon!

AYS is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. Donations made online are fast, safe and secure.
