The Young Life Foundation "was established in 1961 for the sole purpose of financially encouraging the strategic ministry work of Young Life. Over the years there have been many people who have helped guide the Foundation through both good and bad times economically. Today, we have a strong group of directors and officers, and they are working to provide constant leadership to ensure that the gifts that have been entrusted to Young Life are managed responsibly and deployed in a fashion that builds eternal significance.

"The following is an introduction to not only the Young Life Board of Trustees and the Directors and Officers of the Young Life Foundation, but also of our strategic partners at the National Christian Foundation. Many friends of Young Life have benefitted from the body of expertise built by the National Christian Foundation as it seeks to serve Young Life by assisting our donors to better understand the opportunities for redirecting gifts to the "taxman" toward organizations like Young Life."
