What is the Passion in You program?
The Passion in You program gives Young Living brand partners and employees the opportunity to lead a fundraiser for a cause they care about, and the Young Living Foundation will match the funds raised dollar for dollar up to $10,000 USD.
What does “matching” mean?
The Young Living Foundation will match what Project Leaders fundraise by donating the same amount to the selected organization, up to $10,000 USD. If a Passion in You project requires $1,000 USD in total funding, Project Leaders will fundraise $500 USD and the Young Living Foundation will match that dollar for dollar with another $500 USD.
How do I decide what to fundraise for?
First, find an organization in a community you care about that aligns with the Foundation’s mission and three focus areas (Championing Education, Developing Enterprise, and Ending Exploitation). Then, reach out to your chosen organization and inquire about their current funding needs. Finally, work together to decide on a specific Passion Project. Learn more about organization and project criteria below.
How are fundraising donations collected and processed?
Can I use the Passion in You funding to donate Young Living products to the charitable organization?
No, Passion in You funding cannot be used to purchase Young Living products for the organization you are partnering with. If you would like to request a donation of product for the organization, you can email email@example.com.
Can I use a different fundraising platform to raise funds for my Passion in You project?
No, Passion in You fundraisers must go through the Passion in You fundraising platform in order to be eligible to receive the funds.
Who is eligible to apply?
Young Living brand partners in good standing and Young Living employees of at least six months are invited to apply.
What is a Passion in You Project Leader, and what is their role?
Once an application is approved, you become a Passion in You Project Leader. As the Project Leader, you will be responsible for collaborating with the selected charitable organization, identifying a project to fundraise for, creating and promoting a fundraiser, and sharing personal stories and photos from the project.
What is a Passion in You Project Partner, and what is their role?
For projects led by Young Living brand partners that require over $10,000 USD of total funding the Project Leader will need to find a Platinum or above Project Partner to support throughout the journey. The role of the Project Partner is to help promote the fundraiser and build awareness around the cause. There is no financial obligation for Project Partners and no limitation on how many projects a Platinum and above can support. Being a Project Partner does not exclude one from being a Project Leader and hosting their own fundraiser.
What is needed before filling out an application?
Young Living brand partners or employees will need the following information for their selected nonprofit: a point of contact at the organization, their title and phone number, the organization’s address and website, social media handles, and official registration documentation. For brand partners wanting more than $5,000 USD matched by the Young Living Foundation, you will also need to provide the name and ID number for a Project Partner that is Platinum level or above.
What happens after I submit my application?
Once an application is submitted, it will be reviewed and evaluated by the Passion in You evaluation team, and you will be notified whether or not it is approved. If it is approved, you, the Project Leader, will be provided with a fundraising toolkit that includes everything you need to host a successful fundraiser!
When will I find out if my application has been approved?
Applications are due each month by the 5th, and you, the Project Leader applicant, will be notified of approval or denial by the 15th of the month. Applications received after the 5th of the month will be notified the following month by the 15th.
How often can I be approved to be a Project Leader for the Passion in You program?
Young Living brand partners and employees can be Project Leaders once every two years.
If my application is denied, can I apply again?
Yes, you can apply again. All applications must meet our program criteria in order for them to be considered, and even then, some applications may still be denied. The Young Living Foundation receives an overwhelming number of applications each month and wish there was an infinite number of resources to fund all the projects our members are passionate about.
