Are you a nonprofit serving youth through unique projects or programs? The Youth Grantmakers of the Inland Empire Community Foundation might help fund it.

The Inland Empire Community Foundation serving Riverside and San Bernardino Counties is now accepting applications for grants from the San Bernardino Youth Grantmakers Fund through February 28, 2020.

The San Bernardino Youth Grantmakers awards grants to nonprofits in San Bernardino for programs, projects and activities that support the well-being of youth and teens in the area. This year’s class consists of high school students from Aquinas High School, San Bernardino High School, Indian Springs High School, Citrus High School, San Gorgonio High School, and Pacific High School who review grant proposals, conduct nonprofit site visits and recommend grants for funding. 

Started in 2009, the program was created to empower youth to address issues important to them by learning about and leading the grantmaking process. Not only do these young people become civically engaged, but better prepared for community leadership and more aware of the nonprofit sector.
