While you’re spending the week celebrating thankfulness with family and friends, we invite you to keep the spirit of giving alive even after Thanksgiving is over.
This #GivingTuesday, November 28, you have the opportunity to share your gratitude with those who need our support as they develop leadership skills within emergency services.
The primary goal of YLD is to promote the importance of leadership as a key element in developing and improving emergency services in the United States.
To accomplish that the Foundation provides financial support to qualified applicants to pursue advanced leadership development training and education. Since YLD was founded, we have awarded over $225,000 in scholarships to members of the fire and emergency medical services.
The Yvorra Leadership Development Foundation (YLD) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. The Foundation operates under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and as an organization described in section 501(c)(3) and 509(a) of the code.
The Foundation was founded in 1988 in memory of Deputy Fire Chief James G. Yvorra, who was killed in the line of duty.
