About this grant
This grant will provide partial support to the Youth Transition Funders Group (YTFG), a project of the Coalition of Community Foundations for Youth. YTFG was formed in 1997 to focus specifically on improving the transition of youth into adulthood as economically self-sufficient and productive members of society. It provides a forum for foundations to network and develop comprehensive and complementary grantmaking strategies to create opportunities for youth in transition between the ages of 16-24. Key activities in 2006 will include supporting funder collaborations, expanding the membership base, increasing field collaborations, raising awareness on cross-cutting issues and engaging youth more effectively.Since its inception, YTFG has expanded into a collaboration of 30 foundations and a national network of more than 200 local, regional and national grantmakers from across the country.
