Committed to transparency.
Platinum Seal of Transparency
We’re proud to have earned a Platinum Seal to share our full and complete story with the world. To reach the highest level of transparency, we added extensive information to our Nonprofit Profile: basic information about our missions, programs, leadership, etc.; in depth financial information; qualitative information about goals, strategies, and vision, and the progress we are making toward our mission.
Excellence in Giving recognizes Transparency when charities share more data about governance, finances, strategy, and impact than the IRS requires. Each recognized charity has submitted 175 data points about operations and performance for donors to review before making an informed giving decision.
In-Kind Donations are non-cash contributions and are governed by different laws than cash, check or other monetary gifts. For a full explanation, check out Topic No. 506 – Charitable Contributions on IRS.gov.
Please contact Maria Anderson if you are planning to make an in-kind gift to Yellowstone.

Yellowstone is actively seeking corporate partners that would support Yellowstone through financial contributions as well as employee involvement, with volunteer opportunities to help supervise field trips, read to our younger students, help serve special lunches, and/or help with extracurricular activities such as athletics, cheer-leading, or Boy Scouts.
We believe that a combination of financial support and employee volunteer support from a corporate partner will promote the long-term objectives of Yellowstone and provide a positive “return on investment” for the company.
For more information about corporate partnership opportunities, please contact Maria Anderson at 713-741-8000 ext. 1090, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
