It’s an unfortunate truth that the services YST provides will always be needed, and funding will always be an issue. The CatalYST Circle recognizes and honors donors who leave a legacy by making a future gift to YST in their will, trust, life insurance, IRA or other estate plans. These legacy gifts help build YST’s endowment fund and are invested in perpetuity with a portion of the investment income available to support YST programs.

Members of the CatalYST Circle believe in our mission and want to ensure our programs and services focused on homeless youth, delinquency prevention, youth development and counseling are here to help adolescents and their families for years to come.


To join the CatalYST Circle, for more information, or to tell us about your already planned legacy gift, please contact Suzy Sharp, Director of Development, at 918-382.4401 or

“When the opportunity arose to participate in the planned giving program with YST, I didn’t hesitate, Youth Services has a long history of excellence, and is today nationally recognized for innovative programming in fulfilling their mission. The wonderful staff are passionately committed to helping our community’s youth achieve their full potential, and I am proud to help ensure their future work by naming YST in my trust.”   - Ellen Ralph
