Supporting young people as they serve the causes they care about
The Grants Advisory Board for Youth (GABY) was created in 2003 to support youth by developing their knowledge of philanthropy, skills for improving their community through service learning, and resources for implementing youth-led projects. The program sparks young people's interests in giving and taking action on issues that are important to them, and encourages local youth to join with us to help make our community a better place.
To date, GABY has granted nearly $500,000 to more than 300 projects.
GABY is now accepting applications for new board members for the 2017-18 school year! We encourage local youth ages 13-18 (attending high school in Fall 2017) who are interested in making their community a better place to join this service learning experience! If you or someone you know is ready to be a party of an amazing group of youth who have an imprint on the future of philanthropy and community engagement, download the board member application below. Applications are due June 23, 2017.
Our GABY program offers local youth the opportunities to lead and serve.
