Grants Advisory Board for Youth

Our youth have a lot to offer—fresh ideas, good questions, and a genuine desire to give back. Fresno Regional Foundation’s Grants Advisory Board for Youth (GABY) supports youth participation in philanthropy and civic engagement. Here’s how:

Join our Grants Advisory Board for Youth (GABY)

Board members distribute requests for proposals that benefit youth, study incoming grant requests, and recommend grants to the Foundation’s board of directors. In the process, you’ll learn about meeting facilitation, public speaking and development strategies. Contact us to find out how to join.

Apply for funding to support your community project

Apply for a grant from GABY to support a special community project or the work of a local youth group or youth-serving group. Proposals must be written by youth and demonstrate a positive impact on the community.
