Area char­i­ties ben­e­fit from Youth En­dow­ment Fund

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Alberta - CON­TRIB­UTED

This June, the Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion once again dis­trib­uted grants from our Youth En­dow­ment fund to five schools and youth groups par­tic­i­pat­ing in our Youth in Phi­lan­thropy (YiP) pro­gram.

These stu­dents re­searched var­i­ous char­i­ties as part of learn­ing about phi­lan­thropy, com­mu­nity need and chal­lenges faced by the not-for-profit sec­tor.

Re­cip­i­ent char­i­ties (see below) were then se­lected by the stu­dents to re­ceive grants made pos­si­ble through the Youth En­dow­ment Fund at the Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion.

This year, the five schools and youth groups par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pro­gram se­lected nine dif­fer­ent char­i­ties to re­ceive funds to­tal­ing $10,000 - here is a list of the par­tic­i­pants and lucky re­cip­i­ents:
