With thanks to the 1,194 donors that contributed, we are thrilled to report that we reached our 2021-2022 SYA Fund goal, wrapping up an outstanding year.
We are so grateful for your generosity, which directly impacted the SYA experience for students and faculty. From the big things – financial aid, professional development, school trips – to the smaller ones – extracurricular support, classroom equipment, museum tickets – your support made so much possible on our campuses this year.
SYA Fund Highlights
As a way to recognize our loyal community members, the Frequent Flyer program was created to honor those who have made recurring or consecutive gifts to SYA. Loyal donors are the foundation of our network of SYA partners, ensuring that this life-changing experience will be here for generations of students to come and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate this group!
Power in Numbers: Current Parent Challenge
This year, we were excited to offer a challenge exclusively for parents of 2021-2022 students. France, Italy and Spain parents competed for the highest participation rate, which would unlock a special surprise at the end-of-year party for the winning campus.
It was a tight competition with Italy emerging victorious at 46.9% participation, followed closely by France at 46.1% and Spain at 40.5%.
Due in part to this challenge, we are thrilled to say that collective current parent participation in the SYA Fund reached 50% this year!
Thanks to the 257 donors who participated in SYA Day on April 6, we surpassed our donor goal! For the first time ever, there will be an SYA Day Scholar in next year's class.
Our community spent the day sharing photos and stories on social media and reconnecting with classmates.
