Youth Philanthropy Grants
The Youth Philanthropy Council (YPC) is a youth-focused and youth-administered committee operating as a grant-making board. Students from each area high school with potential leadership skills and an interest in community service were selected by their principals and/or guidance counselors. The Youth Philanthropy Council was established in the fall of 2008 after it was noted that 63% of the Community Foundation’s annual competitive grants were awarded to youth programs. The initial goals were and continue to be:
- Promote youth development and empowerment through experiences of philanthropy
- Encourage and support community initiatives about which youth care, recognizing youth as a community resource
- Engage youth and adults in partnership through giving and serving for the common good
