Agency: Pay It Forward Foundation
Program: Pay It Forward Foundation Mini-Grants
Schools, churches and community youth groups (with an adult sponsor) may apply for funding. Youths or adults may write the application. Groups whose members are all over the age of 18 must include work with youth under the age of 18 as part of their projects.
The Pay It Forward Foundation administers a mini-grant program for Pay It Forward activities designed by and involving youth in service to their school, neighborhood or the greater community. Mini-grants up to $500 are available to schools, churches and community-based groups of youth for service activities of all types.
A Pay It Forward project is defined as one or more service activities that benefit a school, a neighborhood or the greater community, and that include learning goals for the youth participants. Only projects that clearly contain a "pay it forward" focus - that is, projects on the concept of one person doing a favor for others, who in turn do favors for others, with the results growing exponentially - are given consideration in the grant making process.
