The Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa's Teen Trust program is a model for youth philanthropy. Each year, a diverse group of students from area high schools allocate $10,000 to 501(c)(3) non-profit agencies in Black Hawk County. Using a grant application system, site visits, and training seminars, the Trustees work as a team to decide which organizations to assist through financial aid or volunteerism.
Currently, the Teen Trust program is not accepting grant requests. It is anticipated the next grant cycle deadline will be around December 2013. The online application will be available 2-3 months prior to the deadline. Be sure to check back frequently so as not to miss the next deadline.
Attention previous grant recipients: In order to submit your grant report you will need to do so through the Online Grant Site.
