Rating: 5 stars  

A donation to Simon Youth Foundation directly impacts the lives of young individuals who have already faced life challenges such as poverty, early parenthood, homelessness, and failure in traditional schools. SYF Academies guide students not only to succeed academically, but to give back to their communities. This organization is grass roots and if you could personally speak to the students who benefit from SYF, you'd know that every dollar you give is well-spent.
