Youth in Philanthropy

YIP LogoThe Youth in Philanthropy is a program that involves high school students who consider worthwhile charities in their local community for grants of up to $500 to each charity.  Morris and Rosenort School are proud to announce that they have joined in this amazing opportunity to help.

This six-year program is initiated by The Thomas Sill Foundation and partly by the Morris Area Foundation (MAF).   The local high schools and community foundation will establish a Youth Advisory Committee who will make decisions and consider grant applications.   The Thomas Sill Foundation will make $3,500 available to the Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) for a period of 3 years with the expectation that the MAF will continue to fund the program for another 3 years.  

Students will have the opportunity to make decisions, and will learn knowledge and skills as active and informed philanthropists. This will help to bring about positive and lasting change in our communities.

Application Process

If you and your charity are interested in applying, the application form can be found here YIP Application, as well as for pickup at the Rosenort and Morris school offices.

After we have received and reviewed the applications, our Youth In Philanthropy groups will meet and consider which charities we feel are suitable for the grants. if we decide to award you we will contact you with further information.

We will host a ceremony where we will invite all charities we have awarded to attend and we will present the grants there. We encourage everyone to keep applying and not to be discouraged. We thank everyone for your interest and charity work in our communities.
