Panera Bread Foundation invites applications for programs serving children and youth

The Panera Bread Foundation envisions a world in which young people can unlock their full potential and dare to dream—a world in which opportunity and economic mobility are accessible and equitable for all.

The foundation’s grant program awards organizations with a common vision and purpose of investing in children and youth to become leaders. To that end, nonprofit organizations will award grants that provide access to education, opportunity, and mentorship to at-risk, underserved, or historically underrepresented children and youth. Current 2022 Panera Bread Foundation grant partners predominantly serve high school and middle school students. The programs for high school students help youth stay in and do well in school, graduate high school, attend post-secondary school, or find a long-term career path. In contrast, middle school programs are focused on strengthening learning skills, enhancing hard and soft skills, and helping children build healthy relationships with trusted adults through mentorship programs. Other programs serve students by specializing in STEM or STEAM programs.

Grants between $25,000 and $150,000 will be awarded to recipients in early 2023.

Applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofits serving ages 10-18 planning to start a new program or expand an existing program focused on college readiness, skills building, workforce or leadership development, or mentoring.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Panera Bread Foundation website.

Deadline: November 14, 2022
