YPC accepting grant applications

Posted on: January 2, 2020

The Youth Philanthropy Committee, (YPC) the youth grant making arm of the Hamilton Community Foundation, announces it is currently accepting grant applications from area nonprofit organizations serving Hamilton, Ross and New Miami.  Each year, YPC, a group of students from Badin, Hamilton, New Miami and Ross high schools, awards $50,000 annually to area organizations serving youth. Grants range from $500 - $5,000.  Email applications to Katie Braswell at the Hamilton Community Foundation by Friday, February 10, 2020.

YPC’s funding priorities include innovative projects that are youth-focused and responsive to the needs of our youth; demonstrate collaboration with other organizations and are not a duplication of existing services.  YPC gives higher priority to programs/projects that fill a gap in serving underprivileged youth. Preference is also given to projects enriching the lives of students outside of the classroom.
