Launched in November 2008, the Youth Philanthropy Initiative’s goals are to teach youth to meet community challenges by making grants to projects that address concerns of youth and to instill in them an ethic of volunteering and giving so they become philanthropists. The Idyllwild Youth Grantmakers (IYG) was formed in February 2012 to review proposals and recommend grants for funding in the Idyllwild community. Members of the IYG are middle school students from Idyllwild School.
The Youth Grantmakers Fund is a special fund allocation for projects, programs and/or activities that address issues facing youth such as: alcohol use and drug use, teen pregnancy, youth recreation, homelessness and hunger. The Idyllwild Youth Grantmakers Fund is generously supported by funds from the Idyllwild Community Fund, with matching funds from The Community Foundation.
