Young Living gives back through
the D. Gary Young Foundation!
How do we give back? We give back on a global scale through
the Young Living Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt
organization. Young Living covers all administrative costs
of the foundation, so 100 percent of every single
tax-deductible donation goes directly to our carefully
selected projects and partnerships.
The D. Gary Young Foundation is committed to empowering
individuals of all ages everywhere to live a happy, healthy
lifestyle. By providing educational, economic, and even
wellness support to those most in need, the foundation
promotes Young Living’s mission to transform lives for the
better in deep and lasting ways.
By focusing on people and communities where help is needed
most, the D. Gary Young Foundation and supportive Young Living
members play an important role in establishing a bright,
successful, and healthy future for underserved communities

In 2014 the foundation partnered
with the Maestral Orphanage in Split, Croatia. Providing
support to children and young adults who have been removed
from their families due to neglect, abuse, or other issues, it
is currently the only orphanage of its kind in the area.
Sole Hope exists to offer hope,
healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through
education, employment, and medical relief. By not wearing
closed-toed shoes, Ugandan children and adults are susceptible

typically enter the body through the feet.
African Hearts Community
African Hearts is a rescue program
for children living in the slums and streets of Kampala, Uganda.
