YOUTHadelphia announces spring 2018 funding priorities

The Philadelphia Foundation is pleased to announce YOUTHadelphia’s grantmaking priorities for Spring 2018. A total of up to $50,000 in grants will be available for organizations with youth-led programs/projects serving primarily low-income youth of color. Programs/projects will have a combination of social and political factors embedded within its curriculum.

Priority consideration for funding will be given to programs/projects that address the following issue areas:

• Youth Wellness
• Youth Incarceration
• Young Women’s Empowerment
• College Awareness/Readiness

YOUTHadelphia is a diverse committee of youth from across Philadelphia who come together to assess the needs of their peers and make grants to organizations working to meet those needs. YOUTHadelphia is the Youth-in-Philanthropy advisory committee of the Fund for Children.

Organizations that provide services within the YOUTHadelphia priority areas are invited to attend the Request for Proposal Open House at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 15 at 1835 Market, Suite 2410, Philadelphia.

Attendees will be the first to receive the grant application and will have the opportunity to hear in depth about the kinds of programs YOUTHadelphia is seeking to fund.

The YOUTHadelphia grant application will be available at the Open House and on TPF’s website shortly afterwards. The application will be due at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 6. Grant finalists will be asked to host a site visit between Monday, April 20 and Friday, May 2. Grants will be awarded in late May.
