Congratulations on joining thousands of youth and adult advisors from across the country and around the world in your efforts towards improving your community through youth philanthropy! Over the past several years, support for and recognition of youth grantmaking has grown and is larger today than at any other time. This is an exciting time to be involved with youth grantmaking and philanthropy.
This website is aimed at helping you in your philanthropic efforts. Check out the Best Practices section to learn more about efficient operating procedures for YACs and YAC members. A vast collection of Resources is also available and includes hundreds of sample documents for your use.
