We want to make sure that we offer our camps to all kids at little to no cost and therefore include a Scholarship opportunity if they need it. The campers enjoy a positive, respectful and safe environment. We emphasize the ‘team’ and ‘good sportsmanship’ over winning.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    The “See Ya Later” Foundation strives to Inspire Youth and Encourage Families through three main areas of focus, which include: offering a variety of quality and affordable Kids Camps, providing College Scholarships for local graduating high school seniors and encouraging families financially and emotionally who are experiencing a life-threatening medical crisis.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    “See Ya Later” Sports Camps are offered in order to provide our youth with an opportunity to grow as an athlete and as a person. Although most families are able to pay the small camp fees; others are unable to. We want to make sure that we offer our camps to all kids at little to no cost and therefore include a Scholarship opportunity if they need it. The campers enjoy a positive, respectful and safe environment. We emphasize the ‘team’ and ‘good sportsmanship’ over winning. Many of the youth at our camps are from diverse socio-economic backgrounds and some may have never played sports before. For these reasons it is really important that all of our coaches truly engage and encourage all of our campers. After a “See Ya Later” sports camp, each child will come away with new skills, new friends, a great attitude and a huge smile. Kids will also receive a camp shirt, meals or snacks, balls and special gifts. Our camps are popular and we serve nearly 800 kids throughout the year.
    We have awarded over $95,000 thus far to deserving High School Seniors in the Yamhill County area, as well as several from Auburn, Washington. The Scott Banke Memorial Scholarships are helping High School Seniors in tangible ways to help further their education.
    The Seeds of Hope outreach is quite unique as it provides much encouragement to families in a life-threatening medical crisis. The Seeds of Hope committee is creative and finds ways to help each family according to their needs and desires with no strings attached. One family may need help with groceries, rent, or utility payments, but for others, it may be ‘memories’ that they need to make; so a trip may be just what will help bring some joy during their difficult days. We love sending families for a few nights get-a-way. Gifts for the kids are always something that we focus on; toys, trips to fun places, events, etc. Maybe a pampering day for mom would be appreciated, a yard makeover, or a load of firewood is just what the family needs. Whatever it is, each family has been grateful and it has made a big impact in their lives. In fact, several Seeds of Hope families have referred other families to us which is a testament in itself.
    The “See Ya Later” Foundation has been able to gain commitment and recognition from local and neighboring communities through various events including the annual Biggest Turkey Contest. This festival has helped our Foundation to increase its financial and human resources which will further help us to realize our long term goals and dreams of being a positive, long-standing member of the community.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Through fundraising, monthly donations through our Hope Giver program, and the support from individuals and businesses; our budget allows the Foundation to carry out the goals for the following year. In addition to some smaller fundraisers, our annual golf tournaments are our biggest fundraiser to help us achieve the things we want to do to impact children and families in positive ways. With many connections with successful professional athletes from our area we are able benefit from their knowledge and expertise to give back to kids and families. We have continued long-standing partnerships with businesses as well as many volunteers who are committed and love to serve and witness the great impact on others; as their lives are enriched when they give their time and talents. The Foundation is also growing in our communities. We are part of the Chamber and have many opportunities to share at local events and clubs about the Foundation. Many businesses have adopted our Foundation for their community projects so that their employees can give back. Some people have volunteered their time during work hours as encouraged by their employers. With a large Facebook following and a good working website we have a wide reach are becoming more well-known in our communities. We believe that our resources, capacities and connections will help us develop our long-term goal of building a new community center/sport complex. Also, because of the deeply inspiring story of how the Foundation began, people are strongly impacted and want to participate in such a great cause.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Our organization is confident that it is making progress in the community based on the responses from our events and various activities. We continue to attract an increasing number of volunteers who donate their time and resources to fulfill the goals of our Foundation. Additionally, the commitment of our volunteers and coaches has been continuous throughout the years helping us to build a strong and positive reputation.
    In 2013, 103 opening out of the 300 available were filled on the opening day of our football camp registration. Additionally, over 50 kids signed up in just two days for our soccer camp. These numbers, we believe are a reflection of the Foundation’s popularity and continued success in providing quality experiences. Over the years we have experienced a number of families attending our camps from nearby communities, thus indicating that our reach has surpassed our initial expectations. The consistent and positive feedback from parents and volunteers regarding our events and activities let us know that we are making progress in our endeavors to inspire youth and encourage families.
    The “See Ya Later” Foundation made the move to an official office space after 10 years of operating from a home office. Through the financial growth and continued support of our Foundation, we were able to provide a place to serve in our community.
    The strong support from our fundraisers and the ongoing giving opportunities provided throughout the year are good measures that we are making progress. For instance, over 300 dinner guests will attend our annual golf tournament; as well as 132 golfers will participate in our 18-hole tournament. Nearly 130 donated auction items will be featured, representing the support and commitment from local businesses and community members.
    Our Facebook following continues to grow, gaining the attention of local and outside community members. With a continued growth in our social media impact, we can expect to expand our reach and support to greater areas.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    The Foundation will has held 9 Basketball Camps, 10 Fishing Derbies, 7 Football Camps, 4 Soccer Camps and 1 Music Camps. Fourteen Golf Tournaments in McMinnville, Oregon and 4 in Washington will also has been completed. Our Foundation has awarded over $90,000 to high school seniors for continued education. Additionally, over 60 families will have been encouraged through our Seeds of Hope program. We have grown to be able to rent an office space to work out of and hold various meetings. Although we have no paid staff, many volunteers give a significant amount of time towards the success of the Foundation. We have also been blessed to create two commercials presenting the “See Ya Later” Foundation and airing them on our local Comcast network. Our commercials feature community members who have benefitted from our Seeds of Hope program, sports camps or annual scholarships, as well as volunteers who have participated in our programs. There are four key leaders who have participated in our commercials and have helped create recognition and raise the awareness for the need of our programs in the community.
    A prominent goal of our Foundation is fulfill the desperate need for an increase in the opportunities provided for kids and families. We have developed the conceptual plan to build a Sports Complex in our community. We have not yet realized this goal but we are making progress. In 2011 the BMA Students/Bruin Group, from George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon completed a feasibility study on the future “See Ya Later” Sports and Community Center Complex. This study proves the growing need our community has to encourage health, fitness, sports, recreation, education, team-building, arts, family activities, meeting spaces for businesses and community events, and a variety of other opportunities for all ages, at affordable fees at one local center. One mission of the complex will be to provide these resources to families who may not normally be able to afford such activities. This is a great endeavor, but we feel that it will come to fruition in the next several years.

Diversity notes from the nonprofit
Our own research shows us that our Kids come from many various cities to our Camps. Noted that kids came from 40 different cities to attend our Football Camps! Our Volunteers came from 33 different cities to serve at our Football Camp. Many of the youth at our camps are from diverse socio-economic backgrounds and some may have never played sports or played music before.
