Funding opportunity for high performing youth organizations

Venture Philanthropy Partners (VPP) has announced it is now accepting applications for its youthCONNECT initiative which aims to create a network of high-performing nonprofits in the National Capital Region working to improve opportunities for low-income youth, ages 14-24.   This is a terrific opportunity for youth-serving nonprofits in Ward 1.

Up to four nonprofit organizations will be selected through the open competition.   The initiative is funded in part through the federal Social Innovation Fund (SIF).

The RFPP is available for download on VPP's website, along with additional information on youthCONNECT and the guidelines and processes of the open competition.   The deadline for submission to VPP is October 12 at 5:00 pm.
