The Riverside Youth Grantmakers Fund was established by The Community Foundation in 2009. Riverside high schools students ages 15-18, called Youth Grantmakers, address issues important to them by participating in grantmaking, a formal practice of philanthropy. The Youth Grantmakers survey their peers, conduct site visits, review grant proposals, and make grant recommendations based on local youth needs.

In 2015, 7 grants were awarded to local nonprofits serving the needs of our youth in Riverside County:
