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 2018 Grant Application is now available here. The deadline to submit is July 15, 2018.

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 is July 8, 2018, and will feature Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang. The 2018 Benefit Grant Awards Dinner will be held on November 27, 2018.

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

The 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!
