Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $750 to California youth-led teams (ages 10-19 years old) sponsored by a nonprofit organization or school in the counties of Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, or El Dorado. Funding is intended to inspire youth about equity-related causes in their community and encourage a commitment to giving, serving, and taking action.

Proposed projects should:

- Involve youth in meaningful leadership and decision-making roles, so that they are regarded as resources, not just recipients of services
- Develop youth’s problem solving, planning, and other life skills to prepare them to take on adult roles and responsibilities
- Connect youth to their own communities so that they can become knowledgeable and contribute to their own communities
- Promote interaction and cooperation among youth and between youth and adults
- Impact youth in the community, not just the project planner
- Respond to the theme of "Youth Promoting Equity in the Community"
