Youth Philanthropy Grants

The Youth Philanthropy Initiative is a program of the Putnam County Community Foundation, which hopes to cultivate young philanthropists who will follow the learned traditions of giving and serving their community throughout their lives.

In 2006, the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation approved the formation of the Youth Philanthropy Committee, which may consist of up to four adults and thirteen youth. Each year, the Community Foundation Board of Directors will allocate an amount of dollars from the Unrestricted Fund for the Youth Philanthropy Committee to use for its own charitable projects or to grant to charitable organizations for projects led by youth in Putnam County.

Youth Philanthropy Initiative goals include:

  • The promotion of youth development and experiences of philanthropy.
  • To promote and encourage community initiatives that address concerns of our youth.
  • To engage youth and adults in partnership where they work together to serve the common good.

The Youth Philanthropy Committee established an endowment in 2007 to provide a sustainable source of funds for youth philanthropy projects in Putnam County. For more information about the Youth Philanthropy program or endowment, please contact us.
