Donate to YLC

Young Leaders Council is truly grateful for the corporate and philanthropic partners who contribute generously in support of our mission each year.  We are also thankful for the generosity shown by our alumni and friends who believe in the power of YLC’s training and the impact our program has on the Middle Tennessee nonprofit community.  We are training the next generation of nonprofit board leaders, and we thank you contributing to the growth, success and sustainability of this great organization.

In 2021, YLC trained more than 170 individuals, providing them with the knowledge, skills and connections to make a lasting impact for our nonprofit partners.  Many of them are now serving as interns on nonprofit boards and already sewing a seed of prosperity for our community.  We need your help to continue this work and encourage you to support YLC by making a donation today.
