Setting Roots and Broadening our Reach

Yu Ming’s Capital Campaign

A Forever Home for Yu Ming

The Setting Roots and Broadening our Reach capital campaign will support the development of a new school facility for up to 675 students, designed to complement Yu Ming’s innovative education model.

Our future is interconnected and multicultural. At Yu Ming, we believe every child, regardless of their background or zip code, deserves a free, high-quality education that prepares them today to succeed tomorrow.

With the investment of campaign supporters, Yu Ming will be empowered to continue to develop empathetic multilingual changemakers, and to amplify our reach well beyond our classroom walls, towards our vision of transforming public education for all.
