The mission of the Yamhill Enrichment Society is to enrich Yamhill County with projects supporting education & the arts, food & agriculture, and history & community. YES strives to find innovation, creativity, collaboration and efficiency in all of its endeavors.
How We Work:
- YES identifies existing projects with potential and helps take them to a new level.
- YES creates new projects based on potential for building community and board interest.
- YES brings together groups that don’t typically collaborate, but whose interests overlap.
- YES serves as a catalyst for other non-profits, raising money they wouldn’t have otherwise.
- YES considers all projects through a triple bottom line of people, planet and profit.
The native Oregon White Oak, symbol of strength, longevity, and stability, depends on a strong root system for its majestic character. Taking a cue from the oak, YES nourishes Yamhill County at its roots to grow a strong, vibrant community.
The Yamhill Enrichment Society was founded in January 2011 by Susan Sokol Blosser.
