Youth Grantmakers Reviewing Grant Applications

Youth Grantmakers from our Riverside, San Bernardino, Coachella Valley, and Native programs are diligently reviewing the 41 grant applications submitted by local organizations serving youth needs. The students will spend the next few weeks reading and analyzing grant applications while prioritizing the many worthwhile grant requests they’ve received. At the end of this process, they must make a key decision – they will decide which nonprofits will receive grants this April.

Youth GrantmakersMelisa Oropeza, 2017-2018 Coachella Valley Youth Grantmaker, sums up her experience with the grantmaking process, “It has opened my eyes and allowed me to see the other side of many different nonprofits, especially all the hard work and dedication that is put into making a big difference in our community.”

The grants are made possible by the Riverside, San Bernardino, Coachella Valley, and Native Youth Grantmakers Funds. These grants are intended to provide financial support for projects, programs, and/or activities that address issues facing youth in our community as well as projects that are of interest to the Youth Grantmakers. The program interest areas this year are:
  • Coachella Valley: Alcohol & Drug use; Depression; Expectations & Stress; and Mental Health
  • Native: Academic Stress; Alcohol & Drug use; Depression; Family Neglect/Violence; and Mental Health
  • Riverside: Academic Stress; Mental Health; Alcohol & Drug Abuse; Family & Social Expectations; and College & Future Plans
  • San Bernardino: Depression & Mental Health; Academic Stress; Family & Social Expectations; Drug & Alcohol Abuse; and Youth in Poverty.
Some past grantees include Operation Safe House, Assistance League of Temecula Valley, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Empire, and The Youth Hope Foundation.

Decisions will be finalized in May, and applicants can expect to be notified of the results by May 17, 2019. All grantees will be honored at the Youth Grantmakers 10th Anniversary Celebration & Recognition Ceremony on June 9, 2019 at the Riverside Convention Center.
