What is the Yelp Foundation and What is its Mission?
In 2011 Yelp Inc. established the Yelp Foundation with one percent of company equity. Its mission is to support charitable organizations and activities addressing the needs of local communities, including access to information, education, local economic development, and freedom of expression, and to promote a culture of philanthropy among employees of Yelp Inc. The Foundation accomplishes its charitable goals by making grants to deserving nonprofits throughout the U.S. and matching donations made to charities by Yelp employees up to $1,000 per person per year.

We would like to time some time to thank all of the community members who voted for our organization. Your support enables us to carry out our mission to educate, elevate, equip, and empower teachers and students. Teachers participate in highly engaging, research-based, and time-tested workshops and one-on-one sessions that equips them with the tools they need to be highly effective classroom instructors and managers. Classroom management is the number one reason why educators are leaving the classroom; therefore, each year Feed the Mind empowers hundreds of teachers to not only increase academic achievement, decrease behavioral issues, but to also increase job-satisfaction.
At Feed the Mind, it is our mission to create a more diverse STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) future. Therefore, it is our hope to bring the STEAM Camp for Youth to the Dallas area every year. With the “A” for Arts Integration component of the camp, it is our goal to motivate under-served students to sing, dance, create, and perform their way into these fields and pursue them as viable career options.
