W.K. Kellogg – Youth Advisory Committee Grants


To introduce students (and their teachers and club leaders), to Four County Community Foundation and its work, YAC invites you to participate in its GRANT TANK program.  We are offering grants up to $3000 for student-written/student-driven grant requests for programs which benefit our youth.  Simply submit the fillable form and a short video describing your project.  Be creative!  Don’t pass up this awesome opportunity for your school or community!

Projects/programs we are most likely to approve will encourage young people to be involved in improving themselves, their community, and their school.
