Summer Youth Mini Grants
Applications are available for 2017 Summer Youth Program Mini-Grants from the Wild Rivers Community Foundation. Nonprofit organizations in Curry and Del Norte counties are encouraged to apply by 5 p.m. March 31 for funds to support programs that expand and enrich summer recreation programs for Del Norte and Curry County children.
The summer youth program grants are normally made for expenses such as sports and recreational equipment, arts and craft supplies, field trips and scholarships for low-income participants.
Last year, Wild Rivers Community Foundation awarded $16,000 to 27 local nonprofit groups whose programs served thousands of children during the summer months.
The 2016 grant dollars created summer camp opportunities for local youth; provided food to children in need; and sponsored language and cultural education and activities, youth outdoor stewardship activities, summer reading programs, music and theater programs, and various community art projects.
