That’s one of our favorite quotes around here. Try saying “Philanthropy” three times fast and you’ll understand why. It’s a hard word. But being philanthropic isn’t nearly as hard. It’s actually pretty easy. So easy, in fact, kids can do it. And that’s what the Youth Grants program is all about: Teaching kids how to be philanthropic in their communities.
The Youth Grants Program was established in 1997 to teach the youth of Grant County the values and rewards of philanthropy.
