Donors and Youth Foundation Award Grants
Thanks to generous donors as well as the fundraising efforts of the Washington County Youth Foundation, they are awarding $2000.00 for youth directed community service projects.
Lions Unified will be receiving a $1375.00 grant to host a Unified Prom. The prom will help promote inclusion, acceptance, and respect to the special needs community. Lions Unified determined this is an important community need through their involvement with Special Olympics.
The Youth Foundation has also awarded a $625.00 matching grant to the Eastern High School Environmental Science Class for a water bottle filler in order to reduce the amount of plastic that is thrown away by the school.
The Washington County Youth Foundation is a group of students from our county committed to making Washington County a better place to live. There are currently ten members in the Youth Foundation and they are involved in our community and wish to continue that involvement through efforts in the Youth Foundation.
They learn about philanthropy by awarding grants to youth groups for community service projects. They also raise money for their fund with the Foundation so this idea can go on forever, and they perform community service. They are heavily involved in their early literacy project, the Happily Ever After Project and in between, they have a little fun!
Washington County Community Foundation is a nonprofit public charity established in 1993 to serve donors, award grants, and provide leadership to improve Washington County forever
