YGL Endowment Fund

Making a Difference by Giving Back

The YGL community provides members a life-changing experience. Because of this, a group of YGLs inquired into creating a fund to help ensure that all leaders can have the opportunity to experience this journey. Philanthropy will be critical to forging collaborations, synergies and learning moments for future YGLs, and to continuing to operate in a self-sustaining and autonomous way.

As our community’s programmes expand and we aim to catalyse greater systems change globally, the need for a long-term sustainable funding model is clear — especially if we are to continue this trajectory of growth.

With this in mind, the Forum of Young Global Leaders seeks to build a YGL Endowment Fund to raise $20 million over the next three years to accelerate our impact and ensure that every member of the YGL community is able to fully participate.
