Say Yes Cleveland is a game-changer. The dual Say Yes Cleveland components of support services and scholarships will help students achieve their dreams, and help our community grow stronger through a better trained workforce and growing population.

But to accomplish this, we need your help. Your support is needed to ensure that both Say Yes Cleveland support services and scholarships for in place for multiple generations.

Why Donate?

With the support of philanthropy, business, families, and individuals, Cleveland met the first scholarship fundraising goal to become the fourth chapter of Say Yes to Education.

Your support is still needed to reach the $125 million necessary for the Say Yes Cleveland Scholarship Fund to provide postsecondary support, scholarships for college and for trade programs – for multiple generations.

In addition, Say Yes support services, the cornerstone of our work, must be funded separately from Say Yes scholarships. Sustaining and expanding support services will be a necessity to fully leverage the historic private investment already made toward the Say Yes Cleveland scholarship fund.
