Grant Making Priorities
- Proposals written by teen applicants
- Projects that include collaboration with another student, group, church, or charitable nonprofit
- Projects that leverage additional resources, like volunteer time, in-kind gifts of materials or supplies, or that are matched by other funding sources
- Ideas that have high impact with a small grant
Grants range from $500 to $1,500 (you must request a specific amount of funding in your application). Grants are anticipated to be announced by March 18, 2022. Grant recipients have one year to complete a project and spend their grant funds once funded.
Forward Turn grant applicants may be faith-based organizations, local nonprofit organizations, government groups, and schools serving Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties. They prioritize grant proposals written by youth. However, the grant application may be written and prepared by an adult project leader, but we do require that a youth volunteer and program participant write a Letter of Endorsement and submitted with the grant application.
