Invest in a Lifetime Humanitarian & Become a Legacy Sponsor
When you become a Legacy Sponsor at the minimum level of $1,000, your contribution offsets the international trip cost of a deserving student or mentor. We can choose the worthy individual, or you can. This choice must be made before each Service Year begins.
Your investment often makes the Service Year possible for the person you sponsor, and always instills a lifetime service ethic.
Because we want to encourage investment in the lifetime service ethic of our youth, students who apply, meet acceptance criteria, and are sponsored by parents, Rotary Clubs, any individual or business – at the Silver Sustaining Member level of $1,000 per designee – will be given priority acceptance as team size and composition allows.
Donors can contribute lesser amounts per designee as financial aid awards to worthy students. Youthlinc will retain 10% of the contribution as our administration fee. Students who are partially sponsored may receive admission preference.
If you continue your commitment to provide Legacy Sponsorship at $1,000/year, you accrue Sustaining Member benefits from reduced trip cost to a free trip minus airfare over time.

Diamond Level Legacy Sponsors have donated $10,000 cumulatively and consecutively and receive a free Service Year trip minus airfare.
After $5,000 in cumulative, consecutive $1,000 Legacy Sponsorship donations, you or your designee receives $1,000 off the cost of an international service trip.
When you achieve Gold Level status ($3,000
cumulative, consecutive Legacy Sponsorship
donations), you or your designee receives $500
off the cost of a Service Year international trip.
With your first Legacy Sponsorship donation, you or your designee receives priority acceptance to a Service Year team.
