Marin Academy [Youth Grants Board] up to $1000


My name is Maddie Wooster and I am a Senior at Marin Academy. I am also a member of the Marin Academy Youth Grants Board, a student-run philanthropy board that helps fund youth-led community projects benefiting the Bay Area. Each year we select and fund a dozen or more service and civic-based projects for up to $1,000 each. We are looking for motivated young people, who are inspired to start or continue a community engagement project that benefits our local communities like these:

Photography From the Heart “provides family photographs to socio-economically challenged immigrants, providing optimism and a feeling of being held and supported by their relatives and community as they work to integrate into this culture” (2019 proposal). 2 Strings “is based on the fundamental belief that friendship transcends divides. Students send pen-pal letters to one another, meet up together at school events, and receive the support of the program and all who have rallied behind it. The program teaches them first hand the value of friendship and connections to those who have different backgrounds from them. My objective is that young children in the program develop empathy and emotional intelligence” (2020 proposal). Attached, please find our grant application and promotional flyer. The deadline for grant applications is February 1, 2022. Please pass along this information to any middle or high school students you believe might be interested in applying. We look forward to receiving applications from your institution/organization. Thank you, Maddie Wooster Member of Marin Academy Youth Grants Board
