Austin YMBL Sunshine Foundation
The Austin YMBL Sunshine Foundation was created in 1993 to support the goals of the YMBL Sunshine Camps, and to manage an endowment fund that was established in 1988 for the benefit of the YMBL Sunshine Camps. The Foundation provides:
1) College Scholarships
The Austin YMBL Sunshine Foundation provides college scholarships to qualifying students who have been involved with the YMBL Sunshine Camps or Leadership Programs. Since 1993, more than $250,000 has been awarded to over 30 students to attend colleges and universities across the nation. To better serve the young people involved in the programs of the YMBL Sunshine Camps, we intend to increase the distribution amounts as well as the number of scholarships offered each year.
2) Trade Scholarships
In order to serve students desiring to pursue a skilled trade after graduating from high school, the Ronney & Mary Reynolds Scholarship was established in 1996. Scholarships are awarded to qualifying students who have been involved with the YMBL Sunshine Camps or Leadership Programs, and who plan to attend trade or technical schools.
3) General Endowment
The Foundation is also structured to grow its funds to benefit the YMBL Sunshine Camps in the future through a recurring income stream or, if ever necessary, emergency funds.
4) Facilities Funds
We intend to extend the function of the Foundation by establishing balances to cover the on-going maintenance and repairs associated with the Sunshine Camp Facilities in Zilker Park and on Lake Travis.
We will continue to grow the Foundation to support these goals. Your contributions to the YMBL Sunshine Foundation (a 501c(3) organization) are tax-deductible. The organization accepts contributions for scholarships, facilities, as well as general contributions to the endowment or emergency funds.
