See Ya Later

Welcome to The “See Ya Later” Foundation

The “See Ya Later” Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, that began out of the inspiration of a 12 year-old boy who died of cancer. Scott Banke had a zest for life and a courage that motivates the mission of the Foundation which is: Inspiring Youth ~ Encouraging Families.

Foundation’s 3-part outreach includes:

  1. Kids Camps: Basketball, Football, Soccer, Music and Fishing Derbies are available for families with minimal or no financial burden. Learn more about our camps here
  2. Scott Banke Annual Memorial Scholarships: Two $1500 scholarships are awarded at the Senior Awards assembly at Oregon’s McMinnville High School and one $1500 scholarship awarded at Amity, Dayton, Yamhill-Carlton and Newberg High Schools award assemblies. In addition, an at-large award will be presented to ANY graduating senior residing in Yamhill County attending any other public or private accredited high school (includes homeschool). Three $1500 scholarships are awarded to three students who attend Auburn High School, Auburn Riverside High School or Auburn Mountainview High Schools in Washington.

Champions Center:

Over the last two years the “See Ya Later” Foundation has begun researching the possibility of building a youth and family complex. After hours of feasibility studies, demographic research and financial considerations we would like to introduce the SYL Champions Center.  Watch the YouTube Video!

Scotty’s Playhouse:

In addition: Our organization helped raise the funds to build Scotty’s Playhouse-a huge indoor play structure which is available to the community almost every day of the week for free open play times, party reservations, and community events. The Foundation does not own or manage the Playhouse but is a gift to the community.
