15 Forever announces Request for Proposals

 
Boulder County nonprofit and school-based programs addressing food insecurity and gender-based violence education are invited to apply for funding from the Community Foundation's 15 Forever Fund, starting today, March 1.
 
This year's 15 Forever Youth Advisory Committee chose food insecurity after determining this often unnoticed dynamic plays a big role in the lives of youth. They chose gender-based violence education after identifying a need for greater understanding of how to recognize the root causes and signs of this violence, how to intervene, and how to find help.
 
15 Forever was established by your Community Foundation in 2006 to promote civic engagement, philanthropy, and leadership among Boulder County youth. Since then, this youth-driven program has granted more than $200K.
 
Today, 15 Forever is a collaboration with YouthRoots, a national youth philanthropy organization that teaches high school students how to make the world a better place, while developing their leadership and life skills.
 
The Community Foundation Boulder County's 15 Forever Request for Proposals can be found here from March 1 through April 1. Programs in the community or in schools that help support youth who are facing the issues identified as this RFP's funding focus are encouraged to apply. Grantees will be announced in late April.
