Youth Philanthropy Council

The Community Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Council (YPC) is composed of sophomores, juniors, and seniors from the local public and private high schools in Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County. Together they form a grant making body that regularly meets throughout the school year to learn about the grant making process and the social sector.

  1. Programs and services that provide equal access to mental health resources – particularly for trauma counseling for elementary age children.  
  2. Programs and services that provide financial support for residents who need help meeting their basic needs–especially children, families, and seniors.
