About this grant
This grant will provide partial support to the Youth Transition Funders Group, a project of the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region. This network of grantmakers was formed in 2001 to focus specifically on working to improve the transition of youth into adulthood as productive members of society. The group provides a forum for foundations to network and develop complementary grantmaking strategies to create opportunities for youth in transition. Key activities in 2011 will include supporting funder collaborations, expanding the network’s strategic framework across the philanthropic sector, increasing field collaborations, and raising awareness on crosscutting issues.
