Apply for a Grant

2019 YES! Fund Grant

  • Grants are intended to support activity-based, before and after school programs.
  • Awards are not typically made to primarily support summer activities (especially summer only proposals) – some overlap of school year and subsequent summer activities may be supported.
  • Proposals should not focus on extending the curricular/teaching day for students (tutoring programs are not typically funded, although some elements of tutoring might be imbedded in activity-based programs).
  • Proposals are accepted for activities likely to require on-going support.
  • Proposers are encouraged to emphasize the use of volunteers and, where appropriate, the involvement of the schools.
The YES! Fund Grant grant cycle is now closed and grant recipients will be contacted soon.

YIC Grants

Each year, Youth Impacting Community (YIC), a youth philanthropy board funded and supported by the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation, invites area nonprofit agencies to apply for grant funding. Any nonprofit organization with a 501(c)(3) status or a qualified government entity and serving the greater Manhattan area is welcome to apply. Projects that support the following will be given first preference:

  • Projects initiated by youth
  • Projects that will directly benefit children and youth
  • Projects designed by, implemented by, or involving children or youth

The YIC grants are small grants and are typically between $300 and $3,000.

The YIC Grant Cycle grant cycle is now closed and grant recipients will be contacted soon.
