Youth Philanthropy Project
The Youth Philanthropy Project is led by a committee of local high school students who help identify community needs of concern to youth in metro Richmond. This committee reviews grant applications and makes funding recommendations to The Community Foundation’s Board of Governors. Grants are awarded to encourage, empower and assist youth who wish to strengthen their community through service
Started in 1998, the Youth Philanthropy Project is a partnership between The Community Foundation and HandsOn Greater Richmond. Its purpose is to encourage student volunteerism and philanthropy by engaging young people in a grant making process.
