Donor Spotlight: Yardi Systems
Wilderness Youth Project is deeply grateful for the support we receive from businesses and corporations in Santa Barbara. Corporate philanthropy is a great way for businesses to show their employees, customers, and their local community that they are committed to supporting and improving the communities they call home.
Yardi Systems + Wilderness Youth Project
Yardi Systems has been supporting and partnering with WYP since 2005 and has been committed to supporting our Bridge to Nature program throughout recent years. With their support we have been able to expand our programs to meet kids at locations that have more limited access to nature at no cost to participants.
Yardi’s corporate motto is “Take care of our clients, take care of our employees, take care of our communities, stay focused, and grow.”
With headquarters in Santa Barbara and offices in 27 cities across North America, Yardi is committed to supporting the community in every city where their offices are located. Each year, the company distributes philanthropic aid to organizations selected by their employees. In 2021, Yardi supported more than 350 organizations worldwide.
WYP is immensely grateful for the support from Yardi’s Santa Barbara employees. Their support over the last 17 years has helped WYP get thousands of local kids outside to enjoy this incredible landscape we live on.
“We believe in the positive impact that nature has on physical and mental health, and we support Wilderness Youth Project in their mission to make nature accessible to all young people.” -Liana Rao, Director Corporate Philanthropy
Thank you, Yardi Systems
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Yardi Systems and their shared passion for connecting all kids to nature.
