YESPhilly’s primary funding is from the School District of Philadelphia, through a contract to provide Accelerated High School opportunities to 100 students at a time.   We have contracts to cover additional services for these students–with funding from The Philadelphia Department of Human Services and the Philadelphia Youth Network.   We receive foundation support from The Samuel Fels Fund, The Patricia Kind Foundation, The Dollar General Foundation, and the United Way of Southeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey.


YESPhilly is an approved Educational Improvement Organization, and is eligible for donations from Pennsylvania EITC recipients (Educational Improvement Tax Credit).   If you are interested in learning more about how to get credit that allow you to turn your Pennsylvania taxes  into support for YESPhilly, please contact Taylor Frome at,  You can also find information about the EITC program at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s site:
