Fresno Regional Foundation: Youth Grants

The Fresno Regional Foundation Youth Grants Cycle is now open. You can now begin submitting applications. This piece was taken out of their 2008 Grant Guidelines in the section on the Youth Funding.

Special Considerations

There is approximately $30,000 in funds available for programs targeted at parks or music. The Foundation will be granting $225,000 in the area of teen pregnancy prevention (see TPP Addendum for details).

Deadline for applying for Youth funding:

August 7, 2008, 5:00 p.m.

Applications are accepted anytime prior to the deadline. The Board of Directors and its Grants Committees will make final grant determinations, notifications, and awards approximately September 30, 2008.

Grant Amounts and Duration

The Fresno Regional Foundation will award approximately $365,000 in its Youth grant cycle. Of that, $225,000 will be earmarked specifically for programs that address teen pregnancy prevention. Grant awards may range from $1,000 to $50,000.
Generally, funding for non-teen pregnancy prevention requests will be awarded for a one-year period but may vary depending on the amount of time necessary for grantees to meet the objective described in their funding request. All teen pregnancy prevention grants will be for a two-year period.
