New Kent County Youth Philanthropy Board Selected
DOVER, Del. – Sixteen Kent County high school seniors and juniors will experience the joys and challenges of being philanthropists this year through the Delaware Community Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Board (YPB).
Like its counterparts in New Castle and Sussex County, the Kent County YPB includes students from public, private and parochial schools. The DCF gives the Kent County students $10,000 to award to local charities. The students work together to choose a focus area, solicit and review grant applications, conduct site visits, and decide how to distribute the money to have the greatest impact.
Grant applications will be available at www.delcf.org/grants in November and due in January.
“The DCF sponsors the Youth Philanthropy Boards every year to engage Delaware’s next generation of philanthropists and nonprofit leaders,” said Donna Stone, DCF Senior Vice President for Central Delaware. “The students see the needs in their communities and work hard to find ways to prioritize and address those needs. It makes a tremendous impact on the students, and many of them go on to public service.”
