Yawkey and the Yawkey Foundations established scholarship funds at Yale University, Boston College, and Boston College High School. She was a supporter of the Jackie Robinson Scholarship Program, as well as several other educational institutions, to provide minority students and others with scholarship aid. She had a long association with the Jimmy Fund/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as a trustee and for a period as chair. She was active in Tara Hall Home and School for Boys in South Carolina, and she was instrumental in the establishment of the Family Inn in Brookline, Massachusetts, a temporary home for families of patients undergoing transplant surgery in Boston-area hospitals.
