The California Wellness Foundation celebrates Gary L. Yates' legacy of service to the nonprofit sector. He has left an indelible mark on philanthropy by spearheading the pioneering initiatives, public education campaigns and core operating support grants that build and sustain the institutional capacity of health and human service nonprofit organizations. His time as a health provider, advocate and fundraiser greatly informed his approach to grantmaking.

He has applied a visionary lens to the issues he champions — responding to the needs of the underserved and developing a responsive grants program that respects the mission and resources of nonprofits. The California Wellness Foundation Board and staff thank Gary for his strong commitment to the Foundation's mission and for the high quality of its programs and operations.
