The William T. Grant Foundation seeks to improve the lives of youth by supporting small to medium-size organizations that have already had some success but lack the funds to make needed improvements.
The foundation’s Youth Service Improvement Grants program, which awards grants in the amount of $25,000, is open to community-based organizations in the five boroughs of New York City that want to improve the quality of the services they offer to young people between the ages of 5 and 25.
To be eligible, applicants must have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and be a community-based organization that provides services to youth located in the five boroughs of New York City; directly serve youth between the ages of 5 and 25; and have an operating budget between $250,000 and $5 million. In the case of organizations that serve youth only, this should be the total budget for the organization. In the case of multipurpose organizations (i.e., those not exclusively focused on youth), the organizational operating budget must be less than $20 million and the budget for services to youth (direct and indirect costs) must be between $250,000 and $5 million.
Public/private schools are ineligible for consideration.
