YELL's charitable registration number is 801260399RR0001.
Donations over $1,000
If you are considering a one-time donation of over $1,000 we ask that you consider writing us a cheque to save administrative fees. Cheques can be made out to "Young Entrepreneur Leadership Launchpad" and mailed to:
Attn: Young Entrepreneur Leadership Launchpad 7442 Fraser Park Drive Burnaby, BC V5J 5B9
Are donations recognized?
Unless you ask otherwise, donations over $1,000 are recognized on our website within the school year during which your donation is made.
When is the best time to donate?
We receive donations at any point and time in the year.
What will my donations be applied towards?
All of our programming and services are offered to educators and students in public education free of charge, and we could not do this without the generous support of private individuals, foundations, and corporations who believe in the future we are trying to create. Your donation helps us create better content and training for educators, reach new demographics and students, run mentorship programs for youth, and so much more.
Isn't high school education funded by government?
Just like healthcare, it is! But that doesn't mean there aren't gaps and opportunities. Students in BC are highly underprepared for their next steps (77% don't feel ready for a job, and 63% don't feel ready for post-secondary). Help us prepare youth for a radically different future as we fill in the gaps and opportunities where provincial funding has historically fallen short.
Donating through your company
While corporations can receive tax receipts for their donations, as a charity we need to be careful in ensuring corporations don't receive any benefit in return. If you're interested in a sponsorship opportunity, please Contact Us to discuss further.
Other ways to get involved
Inspiring entrepreneurial thinking takes an entire community and ecosystem. In order to deliver our programming, we partner with dozens of local accelerators, incubators, maker spaces, professional networks and associations, universities, municipalities, corporations, and more.
