Youth Philanthropy

The Youth Philanthropy Committee is an initiative of the Putnam County Community Foundation that aims to cultivate young philanthropists who will follow the learned traditions of giving and serving their community throughout their lives.

The committee’s purpose is to foster youth development and experiences in the philanthropic sector, promote and encourage community initiatives that address concerns of our youth, and nurture the development of youth and adult partnerships where they work to serve the common good. 

Committee members financially support the program, participate in service projects and fundraisers, fulfill a leadership role in the Committee’s work, and work together as a team to promote and award grants for youth-led service projects. 

In 2021, the Youth Philanthropy Committee awarded a grant to the Putnam County 4-H Dog Club to purchase and distribute 43 Wag’N O2 Fur Life® Kits to local first responders to make sure pets are safe after a fire.
