Welcome to our homepage!

YEA! Highland Park has raised money for youth, education, arts, and social service programs in our community, Highland Park, IL, since 1997. YEA! stands for Youth, Education, and Arts.

YEA! Grant Criteria are available at the "Grants" page. The 2017 Grant Application is now available here. The deadline to submit was July 15, 2017. (The 2017 deadline has now passed)

Where does the money go?

YEA! donates money to youth, education and arts programs, as well as social services, throughout the city. See the "Who We Support" link for more information.

Support Us!

You can donate by supporting the YEA! dinner and concert. See the "Concert Tickets order form" page for more details. The concert date was June 30, 2017. Stay tuned for information about our 2018 dinner and concert to be announced in the first quarter of 2018!

The 2017 Benefit Grant Awards Dinner will be held on November 28, 2017.

(If you are unable to attend the dinner and would like to purchase tickets only, you can do so on the ticket order form.)

(The 2017 Invitation is available for download here.)

Note that benefit tickets purchased through Ravinia Festival's online, phone, or mail ordering for the concert do not benefit YEA! (only from tickets purchased through YEA! for both the dinner and the concert).

If you are unable to attend this year's benefit dinner and concert, you can still help us by donating directly to YEA! Highland Park.

You may send donation checks to:

  • YEA! Highland Park
  • PO Box 325
  • Highland Park, IL 60035

Thank you for your support!
