Thank you to our donors, without whom we would not be able to do fulfill our mission of not turning anyone away for a lack of ability to pay. Our donors help support our Youth in Government Scholarship Campaign and the Achievers program. 

If you are interested in donating to our programs, you can donate here! 

We asked some of our donors to share with us why they give - read their stories to learn more about our donors! 

"I support the Y and South Carolina Youth in Government because I am constantly in awe of the amazing things that YIG students are already doing. Encouraging and supporting space for them to grow and expand their ideas is exciting! I can't wait to see what these students continue to do throughout their lives." ~Katie Jane Farmer, YIG donor, alum, and volunteer
