Louis R. Cappelli Foundation Offers Support for Programs Serving At-Risk Youth
Deadline: June 30, 2006

The Louis R. Cappelli Foundation (<a href=""></a>) is a funding source designed to assist at-risk youth to reach their full potential.

Three specific targeted areas where the foundation focuses its attention are education, health and fitness, and arts education. Qualifying organizations are those who hold IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status. Applicant organizations must serve at-risk youth.

All fully certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are invited to submit an application for funding that meet the following criteria:

Education – The foundation will look for education programs that encourage collaboration among agencies, educational facilities, childcare centers, school districts, and parents to address innovative education programs that encourage and foster the learning process for at-risk children.

Health and Fitness – The foundation will support programs that provide innovative and worthwhile health programs or organized sports which encourage wellness and fitness, enabling at-risk children to reach their fullest potential in life.

Arts Education – The foundation will support arts education programs that provide access to the visual and performing arts for at-risk children through a wide array of arts and related organizations.

The foundation generally considers grants of $5,000 to organizations meeting the criteria. However, unusually significant and effective programs able to establish a need for greater support may be considered for a grant of up to $25,000.

Grant application guidelines and an application form are available at the Cappelli Foundation Web site.
