Youth In Philanthropy

 

YIP Logo Take4The first initiative for the Brownsville Community Foundation is Youth in Philanthropy:  The Brownsville Community Foundation created a 'donor-advised' fund called The Common Goal Fund.  The BCF contributed half of the funds and The Brownsville Foundation for Health and Education contributed the other half of the funds to begin this new initiative.  Administrators and project team members from the Brownsville Independent School District also contribute time, resources and skills as full partners in the project.


brownsvilleISD“We think that creating an awareness in our youth of what philanthropy really is, of the endless possibilities involved in philanthropy, of the countless career choices involved in philanthropy, of the many ways Brownsville can take of Brownsville might just change some lives.”

 
The Brownsville Youth in Philanthropy Initiative classes is made up of students from all seven of the BISD public high schools.  They spend a semester learning all about the world of non-profits and philanthropy. Each is given actual grant dollars to be given to Brownsville non-profits who apply for their grants through the process of the program.
