The Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation (EWVCF) is now accepting applications for grant-funded youth and education programs in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. The deadline to apply is October 30.
This is the second round of Youth and Education Grants that will be awarded to organizations serving Jefferson, Berkeley, and Morgan counties in 2020. Recreation, education, nutrition, and after-school programs are just a few that are eligible to apply. EWVCF Youth and Education Grants normally range from $1,000 to $5,000.
“Thanks to the generosity of donors who have stepped up during these challenging times, we will award up to $60,000 in grants to support a wide variety of programs, from ones that assist sick, needy, dependent, neglected and disadvantaged children, to others that improve the quality of life for all children in the Eastern Panhandle,” stated EWVCF Executive Director Michael Whalton. “These grants can provide educational, recreational, academic, social, civic, or community-based activities that involve or support children.”
Youth and Education Grant applicants must meet at least one of the following eligibility requirements:
- An already existing nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization in good standing with the IRS,
- An existing government/quasi-governmental agency, or public school applying for a project that is not funded by tax revenue,
