Young Adults Auxiliary (YAA)

The Young Adults Auxiliary (YAA) of the Columbus Citizens Foundation was formed in 1995 by family and children of Foundation Members and previous scholarship recipients.

The goal of the group is to create an Auxiliary of the Foundation where Italian-American family and children of members and scholarship recipients between the ages of 21 and 30 can return to the Foundation and begin philanthropic endeavors that are in line with those of the Foundation. The YAA sponsors two events per year with all proceeds benefiting an Endowment Fund which provides scholarships to deserving students. The YAA also holds regular members-only social events.
