The Foundation’s charitable grant making includes both capital and program grants which are awarded in the following categories: Arts, Culture, & Humanities; Civic & Community Affairs; Conservation & Environment; Education; Health & Wellness; and Human Services.

Expenses will be reduced by sharing resources with other agencies or groups.
Due to the nature and size of grants available for youth funding, most YF grants will most probably be to support new initiatives or operating expenses.
The Foundation normally does not approve grants from the Youth Foundation Fund to support:
Annual appeals or membership contributions;
Conferences, field trips, travel or recognition events;
They are nonsectarian so they don’t support religious organizations for religious purposes. They do support them for non-religious programs, like hunger centers or job training or childcare.

Awarded grants are generally in the range of $500-$2,000 each.
