Sixty-seven Delaware high school students will experience the joys and challenges of being philanthropists this year through the Delaware Community Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Board (YPB).
With a board in each county, the YPB includes students from public, private and parochial schools. The DCF gives the students a total of $35,000 to award to local charities. Within their county board, the students work together to choose a focus area, solicit and review grant applications, conduct site visits, and decide how to distribute the money to have the greatest impact.
Grant applications will be available at www.delcf.org/grants in November and due in January.
“The Youth Philanthropy Board program does more than give kids the chance to make a difference,” DCF President & CEO Stuart Comstock-Gay said. “It gets them out into the community to experience firsthand the impact their work has on people’s lives.”
