Project YANO's activities are only possible with the support of those who value its work. 80% of our funding comes from generous individuals and community groups.


Donations from individuals can be made online via a credit card or with a check sent to our mailing address (P.O. Box 230157, Encinitas, CA 92023). Pledges can be made in the form of a recurring donation via our online donation system.

Group Sponsors

Sponsorships from partners are an important source of support. These can include a monthly pledge or annual contribution from a labor, civic, educator or religious organization.  Fundraisers have also been organized in the past by student and youth groups.
Please contact us if your organization would like to become a sponsor. If desired, we can send a representative to speak about our work to organizations in San Diego County.
