Our goal at The Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation is to aid in the advancement of underprivileged children throughout the Las Vegas Valley. We provide scholarship support and educational incentives to children for meeting their academic, social and life goals.
“I will forever be grateful for my relationship with the PKYF. It has provided me not only financial support, but also counseling and encouragement through my college experience.”
"I am more than grateful to be a recipient of this scholarship, it has many opportunities to offer and gives you a higher sense of confidence. This foundation keeps your dreams alive and lets you know that obstacles are only temporary. It is safe to say that the board members of this foundation are very passionate and care deeply about younger generations that are pursuing higher education. Even though I did not get the chance to meet Patrick I am sure he was a great man. I am also sure that Patrick would be more than proud of the board members because of the amazing foundation they have and what they are doing to give back to their community and the opportunities they offer. I just hope to become an influential person like the board member and Patrick, I hope to become a positive role model for both my Hispanic and American Community. I will strive to make everyone proud of me and show everyone that anything is possible."
"PKYF has given me the opportunity to accomplish my goals and go beyond limits I never imagined. It has presented me with the chance to finish my final semester of my undergraduate career in a different country. The beliefs and values Patrick carried through his life are what the foundation is about and what I hope to carry through mine. I aim to touch lives the way he has and inspire people just the same."
"By assisting, and putting smiles on the faces of under-privileged children, kids lives are impacted in a meaningful, positive way."
"Recognizing our youth as the way of our future, we thank all of you for your continued support to the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation!"
"The PKYF has played a monumental role in my journey in life and I am very fortunate to have so much support from everyone involved."
“It is truly an honor to be a part of the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation family. It means the world to me knowing that I have a support system that challenges and encourages me as I pursue my goals. Because of PKYF, I have been able to obtain not only a bachelor’s degree, but also my master’s degree. It would not have been possible for me to obtain either without their support. I can hardly believe it has been 6 years since becoming a scholarship recipient. I am so excited to now have the opportunity to serve PKYF and the Las Vegas community as a board member. I look forward to what’s to come as we grow and continue to impact the lives of children and youth in our community.”
