Strengthening Nonprofits and Supporting Innovation

Organizations often struggle with support for operational needs, and flexibility to be innovative. Many of the YouthBridge grant programs seek to provide that much needed support.

Building for the Future

An endowment fund allows your organization to generate income for operations, programs, unexpected expenses or longer-term initiatives. An endowment builds stability, and enhances and strengthens donor confidence.

Helping Emerging Organizations

YouthBridge provides guidance and support to transition a new idea into a formal, self-supporting organization. We connect and provide resources for all administrative and programmatic needs.

Investing our Assets for Impact

We advance our mission beyond grant making by putting our assets to work. We invest in local funds and organizations to generate social impact and as well as a financial return.
