YAC Mini-Grants


The YAC Mini-Grant program accepts K-12 student written grants for classroom projects. 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.
