Ed McAmis, an attorney and philanthropist, has been a champion of the work of YES since our inception. To honor Ed as our first private contributor, we named our donor society after the street on which he lives. Coincidentally, "Kia ora" is a Maori word that means "welcome," making our chosen name uniquely fitting.
Our Kiaora members are part of our YES family, and we encourage our donors to be part of our work by participating in presentations and trainings throughout the community.
Thanks to members' incredible generosity and commitment to making the world safer for our youth, we are not confined by the financial priorities of foundations. Instead, we have become leaders for the entire community, staying on the razor's edge of innovative service and program.
