Monterey Peninsula Foundation – Youth Fund – Fall 2014

The Monterey Peninsula Foundation (proceeds from the A.T.&T. golf tournament) is once again offering Hartnell College the opportunity to apply for a grant for next year through the Youth Fund.   You have the opportunity to submit a project from your department/academic area that can benefit by this grant. Projects in the $3,000-$5,000 range and the project dates are November 2014 – August 2015. We are soliciting your projects this year via Survey Monkey. Please contact the Foundation office with questions about your proposal. Additionally, we will be holding two informational drop-in sessions (dates and location below).

Youth Fund grants have three criteria 1) engages the community, 2) targets youth ages 10-24, and 3) involves other community based organizations. Projects addressing these criteria are likely to be successful.

There will be a selection committee that will prioritize the projects and forward to the President’s Cabinet for approval.

Some of the projects that have received funding in past years include:
Academy for College Excellence
Physics Club Outreach
Homestead Review and Poetry Festival
Family Science and Health Day
