Youth, engagement, philanthropy fund launched

The Minneapolis Foundation and the Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board (YCB) are engaging young people to help address youth violence, through the launch of a new (612)

YEP (Youth Engagement Philanthropy) fund. The fund is the first of its kind created by the two organizations, in which young people will choose which projects receive financial support. The fund is now accepting applications for projects and activities that reflect the goals of the City of Minneapolis’ “Blueprint for Action: Preventing Youth Violence.” Only projects involving youth leadership will be eligible for funding. Grants will range in size from $1,500 to $3,500; a total of $40,000 is available.

“The Minneapolis Foundation and YCB joined forces because we both understand the importance of young people’s involvement in the community, especially around this critical issue,” said Ann DeGroot, YCB’s executive director. “This joint effort combines YCB’s expertise in working with youth, with the grantmaking expertise of The Minneapolis Foundation, while providing an opportunity for young people to understand another facet of civic life and invest in solutions they believe in.”
