The YAYA Endowment
Every great educational institution deserves an endowment. Begun in 2009 with support from YAYA founder Jana Napoli, the Board of Directors, and the Richard West Freeman Endowment Challenge, the YAYA Endowment is held at the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Proceeds from the endowment will soon fully support our Artist Residencies program; our long-term goal is to fund annual operations through endowment interest.
Please support the YAYA Endowment with a tax-deductible contribution today that will pay dividends far into the future!
