Youth Grantmakers are Accepting Proposals from Nonprofits Serving Teens
San Bernardino, CA – Are you an Inland Empire nonprofit serving youth through unique projects? The Youth Grantmakers of The Community Foundation might help fund it.
The Community Foundation serving Riverside and San Bernardino Counties is now accepting applications for grants from the San Bernardino Youth Grantmakers Fund through March 8, 2019.
The San Bernardino Youth Grantmakers awards grants to nonprofits in San Bernardino for programs, projects and activities that support the well-being of youth and teens in the area. This year’s class consists of high school students from Aquinas High School, San Bernardino High School, Indian Springs High School, Citrus High School, San Gorgonio High School, and Pacific High School who review grant proposals, conduct nonprofit site visits and recommend grants for funding.
The Riverside Youth Grantmakers provides grants to nonprofits in Riverside for programs, projects and activities that support the well-being of youth and teens in the area. This year’s class consists of high school students from Notre Dame High School, Arlington High School, La Sierra High School, North High School, Martin Luther King High School, Poly High School, Norte Vista High School, and Ramona High School who review grant proposals, conduct nonprofit site visits and recommend grants for funding.
Started in 2009, the program was created to empower youth to address issues important to them by learning about and leading the grantmaking process. Not only do these young people become civically engaged, but better prepared for community leadership and more aware of the nonprofit sector.
