GF YOUTH BOARD VOTES ON
2023 GRANT RECIPIENT
In addition to learning about community involvement and leadership, Gilroy Foundation's Youth Board is also taking a hands-on approach to learning about philanthropy.
Gilroy Foundation's Youth Board is given $1,000 annually by the Board of Directors to award a grant. Their focus areas are on youth, therapeutic animals services, rescue animal services and senior citizen community programs. They set up interviews with representatives from prospective grantees. At their January meeting, Youth Board members listened to these presentations, and at the February meeting, they voted on who the 2023 Youth Board grant would be awarded to. Stay tuned in March to hear how that vote went!
Also on the agenda at the February meeting was a presentation to the students by Mayor Marie Blankley. The curriculum for 2022-23 included various speakers from different community agencies so that students could learn more about local important topics.
