YouthBridge is launching a new grant program, Think Big for Kids, to stimulate innovative thinking and fund big ideas from nonprofits that serve children and youth in our community. We’re looking for big, ambitious, transformative thinking – ideas that may even be unproven or risky. This is a true opportunity to think outside the box!
Our board has committed $50,000 in seed funding, and we have a generous donor who is offering a 50% matching gift on the first $100,000 we raise. We’re working toward having a grant pool of at least $200,000.
Grant guidelines will be published in late March and we will begin accepting online letters of intent starting April 4, 2016. An informational event for nonprofits and donors interested in learning more will be held in mid-April (date, time and location to be determined). As additional information becomes available, we will post it to our website and distribute it via email. In the meantime, please feel free to contact a YouthBridge staff member if you have any questions.
