Sponsors and Friends

The sponsors listed below provide the majority of our funding. YRB, and of course the children and families that are the recipients of their generosity, are grateful for their continued support.

Again, Youth Resource Bank is operated entirely by a volunteer board with almost no overhead. The money we raise goes directly to those who need it, “a dollar in is a dollar out” to the children in our community is our mission.

We would also like to thank these very important contributors:

The children and grandchildren of Judge Black, who have made a substantial donation to support our work in his memory.

Our board members, who spend many volunteer hours planning and hosting the annual cabaret and administering our resources.

Mark Gillham of Destiny Design, who donates many hours and his amazing talent to the design and maintenance of this website.
