Dunham Fund is proud to support a new initiative of the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley (CFFRV) – Youth Engagement in Philanthropy (YEP). YEP is a program to help local students learn the value of, and actively engage in, fundraising for important community causes.
This initiative, coming from over two years of planning and research, seeks to empower young people through serving as an avenue for community leadership and a vehicle to learn about what it means to give back to their community.
CFFRV has supported youth and community engagement in Kane County for more than 70 years. YEP is the next step in ongoing community building from our local Community Foundation.
Dunham Fund’s $50,000 grant, distributed over two years, will support startup and operation costs of the program, helping to build momentum and engagement for YEP.
