Youth Philanthropy Program for Non-Profit Organizations (Wyoming)


Through Youth Philanthropy Program, local high school students discuss, debate and decide how to leverage philanthropy for maximum community impact. They meet with applicant organizations and award grants to nonprofits at an annual awards party. Applying for a Youth Philanthropy grant is a great way to introduce their organization to local youth and to help young people understand the role of nonprofits in their community.
