The Highland County Youth Philanthropy Council (YPC) announces the availability of $10,000 in grant funding to support projects addressing the needs of the Highland County community.

Applications for projects of all sizes are encouraged.  The minimum award will be $500 and maximum award will be $5,000.

As with previous YPC grants, all 501(c) (3) registered nonprofit organizations are invited to submit proposals for projects that are targeted for one or more of the following areas:

  • Access to healthy foods;
  • Transportation for all residents of highland county;
  • Access to mental health services;
  • Assistance for victims of domestic violence;
  • Assistance for victims of substance abuse:
  • Assistance for home heating needs:

  • Access to Health Services.

DUE DATE: Friday, February 21st at 5:00 p.m. EST

REVIEW PROCESS: Members of the YPC consist of six students (9th-12th grade) from Highland County. They will review each application and evaluate it based on its effectiveness at addressing the priorities listed above. Their ultimate goal is to support local nonprofits in their work, fill current gaps in community resources, and spur innovative approaches to solving longstanding community problems. Grant money must be earmarked for services within Highland County, and priority will be given to applicants that are located in Highland or expanding services into Highland. An organization does not need to be located in Highland County, but they must offer services to the residents of Highland County.
