Youth Engagement Grant Opportunity

Fund Advisory Committees (FACs) may already be investing in the future of their youth with gifts of $1,000 to $7,500. An anonymous NCF donor is doubling the impact through Youth Engagement Grants. This matching program has a simple application and easy process that allows you to receive funding in as little as 30 days by working with your Affiliated Fund Development Coordinator.

Follow these steps to start the process:

  1. Discuss the potential youth engagement project with your Fund Advisory Committee
  2. Contact your Affiliated Fund Development Coordinator to request a grant application
  3. Complete the grant application (maximum 125 words per question) and submit to your Coordinator

If you receive the grant, reporting only requires the FAC shares the story and photos of the grant award in a local newspaper (or community newsletter) and/or posts on social media with a copy provided to your Affiliated Fund Development Coordinator. We also highly recommend a thank you to the anonymous donor.

View the video above to get more details on how to double your youth engagement grantmaking efforts.
