At the May meeting, the Youth Philanthropy Committee (YPC) of the Hamilton Community Foundation awarded nearly $30,000 in grants to 8 different nonprofit organizations that will have a significant positive impact on our community. YPC is the youth grant making arm of the Hamilton Community Foundation. Twenty high school students from Hamilton, Badin, Ross and New Miami School districts are active with YPC.
