Young Philanthropists represent the next generation of Aiken County leaders. As young professionals who have chosen Aiken County as the place to plant roots, develop careers and raise familys, they want to do their part through philanthropy and action to improve the quality of life for all in our community.
The Young Philanthropists Society (YPS) is a membership group of young professionals between the ages of 21 and 39 who contribute $240 or more to the United Way of Aiken County on an annual basis. YPS members are individuals who are committed to creating real, lasting change in alignment with United Way of Aiken County’s mission to improve the lives in our community. It is a collaborative effort of young professionals whose desire is to give back to their community through philanthropic efforts, advocacy, and volunteerism.
