The Foundation issues grants to organizations which qualify for tax-exempt status under Internal Revenue Service code 501(c)(3) that are not private foundations.
New Grant Program Added!

Grants will be awarded based on the compatibility of the program with the focus of the Youth Foundation. Organizations with specific programs that promote fitness, health & safety and youth football will be looked upon favorably.
