Youth Philanthropy Committee Grants

The Hamilton Community Foundation's Youth Philanthropy Committee has been making an impact for 11 years by teaching youth effective the importance of philanthropy and volunteerism.

By involving teens in grantmaking, the Youth Philanthropy Committee, made up of 20 students from Badin High School, Hamilton High School, New Miami High School and Ross High School, helps shape tomorrow’s civic leaders. With very little guidance from adult advisors, this diverse group has made a huge difference in the lives of teenagers in our community.

The Youth Philanthropy Committee is responsible for making funding recommendations for grants from several funds at the Foundation: Children’s Home Fund, the Exchange Club Fund, the Stuhlmueller Fund, as well as from unrestricted funds.

The Youth Philanthropy Committee awards approximately $35,000 annually in support of youth programs in the greater Hamilton area.
