Grant applications are now available for Fall 2014 through the Youth Giving Council.  Student groups and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply for mini-grants that benefit local Summit County Youth.

Grant requests are honored from applicants once per school year.  As a reminder, if your group or organization applied for a Spring 2014 Youth Giving Council grant, you are not eligible to apply for Fall 2014.

Applications are due on November 12, 2014.

A special thank you to Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Copper Mountain Resort, and Keystone Resort for their generous support of this program aimed at teaching local youth about the importance to leadership, service, philanthropy, and the nonprofit sector.
