Philanthropy Thought Leadership

Give to Yards for Youth today!

United Way of Greater Atlanta is proud to partner with The Atlanta Falcons for Yards for Youth, a fundraising campaign giving children and their families the tools they need for a successful future.  

Did you know that nearly 500,000 children live in communities lacking equitable opportunities, sufficient resources and social supports to reach their full potential?  Yards for Youth will help ensure that all students are strong learners, have the resources they need, and set them up for success.   

Donate and help us: 

  • Expand early learning opportunities and increase support outside of school
  • Help more kids stay in school by providing access to healthcare support for families that face chronic illness and mental health challenges 
  • Ensure that more families can access stable housing, meals, transportation, technology and other basic needs that are fundamental to helping kids thrive in school and beyond 

We kicked off Yards for Youth with the Atlanta Falcons and our Young Professional Engagement Groups (YPL &LINC) by volunteering to create a fully stocked resource center to one of our partner schools, KIPP WAYS, on our beloved Westside of Atlanta.  More than 800 students and their families were provided with school supplies, hygiene items, meals, and home goods. And it doesn’t stop there. Help us continue this work by giving to “Yards for Youth” today!

Learn More about Strong Learners

Today in Greater Atlanta nearly 500,000 children live in communities with low child well-being scores – lacking equitable opportunities, sufficient resources and social supports creating roadblocks from the child to reach his or her full potential. Together we can ensure more young children have quality learning experiences at home, at quality early childhood providers, and in the community from the start for a successful and sustainable future.


Strong Learners works to:

Build educational outcomes for children by expanding early learning opportunities, increasing support outside of school.

Help increase healthcare navigation for families that face chronic illnesses, mental and family health challenges interfering with school attendance.

Secure housing and basic needs for children and families lacking meals, stable shelter, transportation and technology that are fundamental to achieving educational outcomes, healthy lives and reaching economic stability.
