Our Partners

Whether at the local community level or nationally, Say Yes’ partnerships are critical to the success of its strategy. Our partners include city, county and school officials; teachers and parents; unions; businesses; colleges and universities; foundations and other philanthropic organizations, and faith-based organizations.


Almost $90 million has been raised by the Cleveland community to support the Say Yes Cleveland Scholarship Fund.

As the Say Yes Cleveland chapter launched in January 2019 so did the public campaign to reach the total $125 million goal, which is necessary to provide scholarships for 25 years.

We are grateful to all the early partners who have donated to make the launch of Say Yes Cleveland possible.
