Grants of up to $500 to Door County, Wisconsin youth groups and organizations, including those applying under the umbrella of a school, government agency, or nonprofit, for youth-serving projects. Funding is available for youth-driven programs as well as youth theatre activities.

Applications are invited from qualifying organizations for the following two youth grants:

Youth as Resources Grants:
To provide financial support to projects in which youth use their skills, talents, and abilities to serve or educate others.

Youth in Theatre Grants
To provide financial support to Door County theatrical productions in which youth play a significant role in its production and/or on-stage performance.

General Guidelines for Both Programs:
For applications submitted by high school and middle school age students, the application itself must be completed by the students. For younger children, an adult may complete the application in consultation with the youth. The idea is to ensure that the project is largely initiated by the youth themselves.
