The Delaware Community Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Boards (YPBs), one in each of Delaware’s three counties, are composed of students from public, independent and diocesan high schools throughout the state.
Every year, each YPB makes grant recommendations to support impactful projects in their communities. Together, they develop a focus area, solicit and evaluate proposals, conduct site visits and award grants.
This year, our three YPBs distributed $50,000 in grants to 19 nonprofit organizations. Since the YPB program began in 1999, more than 425 students have served as YPB members and have awarded more than $430,000 in grants.
The Youth Philanthropy Boards need your support!
