YGB Ignites Youth Philanthropy

Apply now to join Seattle Foundation’s 2018-2019 Youth Grantmaking Board


September 11, 2018

Seattle Foundation’s Youth Grantmaking Board (YGB) helps young people learn how philanthropy can effect positive change in our community by engaging them as leaders in meaningful grantmaking that supports local causes.

This year, 15 to 25 high school students across King County will be selected to participate in this highly impactful program. Supported by Seattle Foundation staff and community experts, YGB members will assess community needs, select a grantmaking focus area, develop requests for proposals, review grant applications, conduct site visits and make final funding recommendations.

We are looking for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who are driven to create positive change and can help inspire more youth to join this movement.

Seattle Foundation’s inaugural Youth Grantmaking Board was established in the fall of 2006. The program has invested over $240,000 in organizations or projects that provide direct services to address our community’s greatest needs.

Read more about YGB and download the application form. If you have any questions, please email ygb@seattlefoundation.org.

The deadline to apply is Monday, November 12, at 11:59 p.m.
