The Princeton Area Community Foundation is inviting nonprofits to apply for grants for summer youth initiatives, especially those that reach families who would otherwise not have access to these programs.

This round of grantmaking is part of our Community Impact Grants program.

Summer initiatives are important for young people because these programs serves as safety nets, reduce juvenile crime rates, and help working parents. But for many families, summer programs may be out of reach.

On May 24, the Community Foundation held a virtual gathering to hear from nonprofits and community advocated about the needs in our region and understand why some have some families have difficulties accessing these programs.

We plan to incorporate the feedback we received at the gathering into our grantmaking decisions. More information and grant applications are available online. Application are due June 13.
