Community Foundation seeks youth-focused grant applications

(Fredericksburg)—The Community Foundation’s Youth in Philanthropy program will award at least $10,000 in grants to youth-led or youth-focused nonprofits. Individual grants will range from $500 to $5,000. The application deadline for the foundation’s Fall 2014 Youth in Philanthropy grants is July 31.

Youth in Philanthropy is a ten year-old program that The Community Foundation created to encourage student volunteerism, leadership and philanthropy. It engages area young people in decision-making about the distribution of grant dollars. The group consists of 40 plus area high school students who review proposals from local nonprofit organizations that address youth-based issues. The Youth in Philanthropy members then make recommendations for funding to the foundation’s Board of Governors. Over the years, these young leaders have awarded more than $100,000 in grants.

The Youth in Philanthropy grant application can be found on the Community Foundation website: www.cfrrr.org. To obtain a printed copy, call the Community Foundation at 373-9292.

The Community Foundation manages and distributes charitable giving in the Rappahannock River region. The goal of the Community Foundation is to promote greater philanthropy by assuming challenges faced by the donor and managing one-time and continual giving in a responsible and knowledgeable manner. The Community Foundation distinguishes itself from other local charities by providing efficient and effective services to build a collection of permanent funds. The foundation and its board members are endlessly dedicated to the community’s enrichment and growth.

The Foundation offers a spectrum of services for individuals, organizations and businesses that are eager to achieve great results with their charitable actions. For more information about participating in our giving programs or establishing a fund at the Foundation, call 540 373-9292.

If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
