Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties


Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $500 to $1,500 to Virginia schools, area charities, faith-based programs, and government programs in Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties to promote youth initiatives. The Foundation requires that a youth volunteer and program participant write a letter of endorsement to be submitted with the grant application. There is a high priority for proposals written by youth or at involving youth in the application process. Funding is intended to strengthen positive lifestyles, create united communities, and encourage community involvement.

Grant-making Priorities:
- Projects that include collaboration with other youth, groups, churches, or charitable nonprofits
- Projects that leverage additional resources, like volunteer time, in-kind gifts of materials or supplies, or that are matched by other funding sources
- Ideas that have high impact with a small grant
- Proposals written BY Youth and FOR youth

Ideas for grants include initiatives that:
- Address substance abuse and eating disorders in teens
- Tutorial, mentoring, and educational support programs
- Educate teen users about internet safety
- Teach tolerance and anti-bullying to teens
- Improve school attendance, reduce high-school drop out, and improve teen motivation
- Demonstrate road safety and safe driving practices
- Build meaningful links between youth, adults, and/or elderly
- Abate teen pregnancy
- Help with teen hunger, clothing, shelter, and poverty influences
- Bring awareness and helpful programs for teen depression and suicide
- Support programs that protect and preserve our environment

$500 - $1,500

Grant recipients have one year to complete a project once funded.

Forward Turn grant applicants may be faith-based programs, government programs, area charities, and schools. While the grant application might be written and prepared by an adult project leader, we do require that a youth volunteer and program participant write a Letter of Endorsement that should be submitted with the grant application. Individuals will not be considered for a grant.
