By the Youth Grantmaking Board
The 2017-2018 Seattle Foundation Youth Grantmaking Board—comprised of 17 students from the greater Seattle area—is committed to supporting programs and services that help individuals and families in King County. In a time of political differences and cultural upheaval, this year’s board is adamantly focused on supporting the immigrant and refugee community.
With a total funding pool of $20,000, the YGB invites proposals from 501c3 nonprofit organizations, or those under the fiscal sponsorship of a 501c3 nonprofit organization, focused on advocacy and organizing.
The YGB is concerned about the current state of our immigration policy and particularly the basic human right to keep families here in the United States together and whole. The YGB students wish to support the stability and safety of individuals and families and centering power in the community’s hands. For example, we invite proposals that address pathways to citizenship, support navigating the immigration system and help immigrants and refugees access economic opportunity.
Please read more on the YGB and the application process. The YGB welcome any and all organizations who meet this criteria to apply. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications must be received on March 08, 2018 by 5:00pm by mail, email, or fax.
