The Youth Grant Initiative is a unique and exciting opportunity for youth (grades 7- 8 as of September 2020) to be a part of community outreach through the power and process of giving grants.
At the Multnomah Athletic Foundation, we believe that you have the power to create change and bring people together through athletics.

Joining the Youth Grant Initiative is an opportunity for you to be in charge of the future by creating and leading an epic journey through the world of philanthropy and ultimately changing our communities through athletics for the better.
The Youth Grant Initiative (YGI) team will meet 7 times a year (September –December 2020) and meeting topics will include: leadership, understanding of a nonprofit organization, basics of community engagement, grant making process, review of applications and the value of relationships. By the end of the year, the YGI team will collectively make grant awards and funding recommendation for a provided pool of $5,000, to the Multnomah Athletic Foundation Board.
