Who are we?
The Arlington Youth Philanthropy Initiative (AYPI) was created by the Arlington Community Foundation. As part of AYPI, a Youth Board of high school students encourages sustainable, youth-led projects that improve the Arlington community. AYPI’s Youth Board members review and approve grant funding for youth-led projects and monitoring their launch and progress.
What are project requirements?
Projects should be sustainable and impact Arlington or involve Arlington students.
How to apply:
AYPI’s application process to receive grant funding is a three-part process:
1) the submission of this form, which is a Preliminary Application to determine eligibility
You will be notified by email if you are selected to move forward with a full proposal, at which time you would complete the next two steps.
2) the preparation of an Action Plan, to provide more details of the project
3) a presentation to AYPI’s Youth Board, which decides on grant funding.
