Youth Philanthropy​

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.

Since 2006, the Youth Philanthropy Committee has provided nearly $50,000 in grants to youth-led community projects in Putnam County.

The Youth Philanthropy Committee seeks to:

  • Promote youth development and philanthropic experiences.
  • Encourage community initiatives that address concerns of our youth.
  • Engage youth and adults in partnership to serve the common good.
