Know a young #changemaker? Encourage Them to Apply to YC2
The Foundation is now accepting applications for YC2, a leadership development program designed to educate and empower local youth to become our community’s next generation of philanthropists.
The program is open to juniors and seniors at Nazareth Academy and Lyons Township High School. Students will explore our local community and its social challenges; learn about philanthropic theory; and engage in organizational evaluation and grantmaking. At the end of the program, they will collectively award up to $15,000 to nonprofit organizations that further the mission and vision of Community Memorial Foundation.
Applications are due November 8, 2019 by 5:00 PM.
The Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support of The Burjan Family in bringing this program to the Western Suburbs.
