CYC Mini Grants
Our objective is to use the funding we receive to make a series of grants, which will typically range from $150 - $500 to youth-driven community projects. By creating these mini-grants we hope to involve the youth in the communities of Lake Placid and Wilmington to further the vision and mission of the CYC. Through you and others like you we hope to make this dream a reality and are eager to listen to your proposals.
Beginning January 2015 – till funds are exhausted
Grants will be given to youth-initiated projects, where youth must come up with the idea for the project, and complete the application with an adult acting in a strictly advisory role. For Elementary and Middle School levels-additional adult involvement may be required. Grants requested must be between $150 - $500, and will be utilized for the specified project. This is a reimbursement grant and funds awarded will be reimbursed based on receipts provided.
Must submit a written summary at the end of the project and make a personal presentation to the Lake Placid-Wilmington CYC Board and Grant Committee.
All projects & paperwork must be completed by date indicated in your proposal
Established clubs, groups of students and individual students are eligible to apply
Decisions will be made and selected projects can begin following our January 15th Board Meeting.
Funds received CANNOT be used on food items.
Complete and return the grant application form and budget as soon as you have it ready as we anticipate funds will run out.
Complete the application. Be aware that this is a “competitive process.” All applications will be reviewed by the grant committee.
You must also meet the basic requirements for your project and those participating in it. Once completed the applications can be sent via email to Tina Clark, CYC Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions, please feel free to call Tina directly at 518.523.2474 ext. 4008
