Best Year Yet Foundation Stories

“The worlds of art, philanthropy, and business are absolutely intertwined.”  ~ Jorge M. Perez


The Best Year Yet Foundation does more than offer programs and workshops. It creates partnerships, helps launch new programs in places where support and resources are few and far between, provides tools to create and sustain positive change, and empowers participants to make a difference even against seemingly overwhelming odds. The spirit of giving goes far beyond financial contributions and into connection, caring, and developing an ever-expanding community  – sometimes against all odds – that not only leaves the world better than we found it, but also inspires others to do the same.

Meet just a few of our clients and read their amazing stories that continue to instill in us a commitment to this work we do and love.
