YAC Mini-Grants


YAC's Mini-Grant program awards up to $300 to K-12 classrooms. This unique program originated here at JCF and is now replicated around the state.  Designed to introduce the concept of a community foundation and our work, students complete a grant proposal and budget.  Funds can be used for materials, projects or programs that benefit youth, encourage volunteerism and enhance the school environment. Deadline: October-March


For more information, contact Cindy Bellew, Youth Advisory Committee & Scholarship Coordinator at 517-787-1321 or email cbellew@jacksoncf.org.

We are proud of our YAC Volunteers!

In addition to reviewing grants, our Youth Advisory committee members volunteer throughout the year in Jackson, County.  Pictured are a few of the events they participated in throughout 2017: Daffodil Day at Ella Sharp Park, STOMP Out Suicide, the Priceless Gift Toy Store and making  cookies for the John George Home.
