Youth Advisory Board (YAB) - 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 Youth Advisory Committee will determine the application theme for the next round of grants in the fall of 2019.

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.

Email either one of the YAC Advisors: Monica Reyes, or Keri Shultz, if you have any questions.

In order to apply for any grant, you must first click the Sign Up button in the top right corner to create an account. If you already established an account, click Sign In to proceed with applying for a grant.
