Youth Philanthropy Program awards grants

The Youth Philanthropy Program of the Community Foundation of Teton Valley, in partnership with two Dual Enrollment Government classes at Teton High School, have announced this year’s Youth Philanthropy grant winners at an Awards Assembly at Teton High School.  Now in its 11th season, this year’s awards mark the granting of $51,000 in total and working with nearly 400 students via the multifaceted program.

The program provides an opportunity to introduce the concept of philanthropy to the next generation while helping students better understand the significant and impactful roles that nonprofits play in their own community. This year’s seniors worked through 14 grant applications with a total funding request of $12,413. After thorough discussion over three class periods, they awarded 4 projects full funding and 6 projects partial grant awards with the funds they had at their disposal. Recipients of the awards made by the students included The Education Foundation of Teton Valley, Mountain Roots Education, Seniors West of the Tetons, Subs for Santas, Teton Valley Aquatics, Teton Valley Community Recycling, Teton Valley Food Pantry, The Kotler Ice Arena, Teton Valley Youth Lacrosse Association, and Valley of the Tetons Library.
