Apply for a YIP Grant
Youth in Philanthropy, also known as YIP, teaches youth the importance of giving and serving; encourages youth involvement in philanthropy; and provides ways for local young people to take action on issues that are important to them. The program consists of 40 tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders from the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George, and Caroline and the City of Fredericksburg. Each grant cycle challenges these young people to practice leadership, solve problems, study proposals, managing budgets, working together and presenting views to an audience of peers and adults.
