Youth Philanthropy Project Seeks Curious and Motivated Youth

The Community Foundation invites high school students from around Whatcom County to take part in the Youth Philanthropy Program for the 2018/2019 school year.

This program is open to all and it helps young people develop personal and professional leadership skills while making a difference in our community.  

Participants learn about local needs and work together to distribute grants related to the environment. Over the last three years, the youth philanthropists distributed $40,000 in grant funding and supported 17 local organizations.  Youth philanthropy is a great way to learn leadership and professional skills along with the importance of giving.

Applications are being accepted now until June 15, 2018. Click here for application!
