Grants averaging $7,500 to Pierce County, Washington nonprofits, municipalities, and schools for out-of-school initiatives for youth ages 11 to 24. First time applicants and applicants who have not applied in the past three years must call the Foundation prior to applying.
The Youth Philanthropy Board (YPB) funds quality out-of-school time programs that provide youth opportunities to engage, learn, and lead. The Foundation believes that investing in youth is critical to investing in the health of the region – today and in the future. The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation focuses on the challenges faced by youth during the time they spend out of school.
The Youth Philanthropy Board (YPB) is a nine-month program that brings the important perspective of youth voice into philanthropy. Designed to provide youth the opportunity to play a role in funding decisions that directly affect their lives, the YPB equips members with tools to become philanthropic and community leaders.
The YPB believes that self-esteem, empowerment, and healthy choices are vital elements for youth because these are critical in helping youth navigate complex transitions to adulthood, career, and life success. The YPB will support programs that reflect these elements, create opportunities for youth to have leadership roles within programming, and value youth voice, and youth feedback by developing a platform where program structure and activities are influenced by youth.
