The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole offers the Youth Philanthropy Program at all four local high schools – Jackson Hole Community School, Jackson Hole High School, Summit High School and Journeys School. In the Youth Philanthropy Program, students solicit and review grant proposals, meet with various local nonprofit organizations, discuss effective strategies for community impact and recommend grant awards. The greater the variety and strength of the grants received, the richer the program is for the students and the more they learn about philanthropy and the great work that is happening in this community. Each local high school may award up to $5,000 to nonprofits serving Teton County, Wyoming. Grant recipients can be awarded $500 – $4,000 in funding.
- Amount of request may not exceed $4,000.
- Each proposal must be represented by one IRS recognized charitable entity.
- Site visit or interview may be requested.
- Checks will be distributed at an Awards Party to be held in mid-April.
