YOUTHadelphia Teens Award $50,000 in Grants

12 Plus, Mighty Writers and other youth-oriented orgs benefit from youth-led philanthropic and civic engagement program

YOUTHadelphia, the Youth in Philanthropy Committee of The Philadelphia Foundation’s Fund for Children, announced last week that $50,000 in grants would be awarded to 10 organizations within the city of Philadelphia which serve young people. Each of the organizations will receive $5,000.

YOUTHadelphia’s 22 spring committee participants met weekly since January to set priorities and select appropriate recipients for the grants. The teens developed the application for the grants, held an open house at which the funding guidelines were explained to potential applicants, and assessed the eligibility of the applicants and determined 19 finalists.

The committee then conducted 15 site visits during which they participated in service projects to learn more about the programs the organizations offered before making a final determination based on whether the proposed project fit the initial criteria the teens had established.

Each of the following programs will receive a $5,000 grant:
