Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) - Youth and Philanthropy Fund

The Youth and Philanthropy Fund provides grants to Berks County programs that address youth-related issues that are considered critical needs by the foundation’s Youth Advisory Committee.

The theme for grant proposals for 2018-2019 will be determined in Fall 2018.

Select grant applicants will be asked to participate in a site visit with our YAC members.
Site visits will occur in February and March. Decisions will be made in April. Funds will be available in May.
