Annual Fund

Each year, every one of SYA’s students benefits from the Annual Fund, a critical resource that impacts virtually every aspect of life and learning abroad including:

• academic excellence
• financial aid
• unique cultural and travel opportunities at each school
• faculty excellence
• facilities maintenance

YOU - SYA's global community of alumni, parents and friends - are critically important to our mission.
You understand the value of the SYA experience, and continue to make it possible through your word of mouth (sending your relatives and friends to SYA!), your volunteerism and your financial generosity. Because of YOU, SYA’s Annual Fund has raised over $1M for the last three consecutive years.

Participation in SYA’s Annual Fund is a global effort, with alumni, parents and friends in all 50 states and over 65 countries. The success and strength of the Annual Fund is measured not only by the size of gifts, but also by the participation of our entire community of donors.

Please make a difference in the life of a student abroad by making a gift today.
You may be able to have more of an impact than you thought possible when you set up recurring giving. Leadership gifts are recognized through membership in The 1964 Society.

SYA’s Annual Fund runs from July 1 – June 30.
