Students participating in the Community Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy program got a taste of what it is like to allocate available grant money to deserving projects.  The 50 participating students read applications from 40 organizations, a marked increase over last year’s nine applications and determined how to share the $14,000 available. Nonprofits that submitted requests played an integral role in educating the next generation of philanthropists.  Participants discussed philanthropy and the many considerations involved in granting funds. At the top of their list were the impact their allotted dollars could make, how many people the programs served and community need. The teens reviewed applications, discussed each proposal at length, visited with nonprofit representatives and determined which grant requests to fund. In the end, grants were awarded to 15 of the non-profits who applied.
