Youth Philanthropy & Next Gen


2020 Indiana Youth Philanthropy Program Directory

Held within a community foundation, a youth council is typically made up of students from area high schools who are engaged in philanthropic service by supporting the work of the foundation through grantmaking and volunteerism. Youth council members assess community needs and have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, becoming contributors to the success of their community through the giving of time, talent, and treasure.

Currently, 25 Indiana Community Foundations have a youth philanthropy program.
