Since its inception, the SYA Foundation has provided tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships and improved the quality of lives for our residential Cadets. The SYA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax deductible.

Tuition to the Academy is FREE to all accepted cadets, however, there are many "extras" that are not a part of the program cost. You can help by giving a small donation of $25 or more. Because of your donation current and future cadets will be provided items such as body soap, shaving supplies, materials and stamps to write home as well as the ability to apply for educational scholarships. Instantly help out a current cadet who can not afford the mandatory  items needed to attend our academy and help them further their education.  100% of your donations go in direct support of the Sunburst Cadets.
