This year, the Community Foundation is celebrating 25 years! One way we are celebrating is through what we are calling ‘Celebration Grants‘. For each community, we selected an ongoing event to be a part of, one that attracts local residents from that area. During each event, we’ll set up a booth, hand out giveaways, and ask people to nominate a nonprofit or community organization in that community. At the end of the event, we’ll hold a drawing and award that organization with a grant for $2,500.
So here’s where we need your help. Having YEP representatives at each event is really important to the Community Foundation. Seeing youth play a role in philanthropy and community engagement is inspiring to people of all ages. If you enjoy being social and handing out giveaways, let us know. We need 1-2 YEP volunteers per shift!
