On October 23rd, Seattle Foundation will be starting its 11th year of the Youth Grantmaking Board (YGB). Built on the concept of youth powered change, YGB’ers have contributed over $200,000 into Seattle’s public sector to fund organizations or projects that provide direct services to systems change programming – all to support the success of children, youth, and families.

Each year 15-25 students across King County come together, with the help of community experts and Seattle Foundation staff, to help identify an area of focus and recommend grants to support these causes. We are looking for youth leaders who are driven to see change happen and help inspire many more generations of youth to join this movement. Applications are accepted until Sunday, Oct. 2nd, at 11:59pm to be submitted via mail or email.  If you have any immediate questions, please email ygb@seattlefoundation.org or call 206.388.1655.
