Community Foundation awards $14,000 in Youth in Action grants

Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta - The Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta is happy to announce ten grants to fund projects through its Youth in Action Granting program, for a total of $14,000. Funding will support active youth, learning opportunities, pet care, and a solar energy project. Communities involved include Cardston, Coaldale, Glenwood, Hays, Lethbridge, and Pincher Creek.

“This is our sixth year with the Youth in Action Grants Program. It’s a great initiative and a fantastic way to introduce youth to philanthropy, and to let them experience the impact giving has on the community,” said Charleen Davidson, the Community Foundation’s Executive Director.

“The entire Youth in Action Grants Program focuses on youth. The applications are written by youth, and the grant recipients are selected by youth – the University of Lethbridge Rotaract Club. It is wonderful to see youth so engaged in their communities. They come up with some creative ideas to address needs that they see in their community, but that adults might not necessarily identify.”
