Sample Grants 

Teens for Tomorrow Teens for Tomorrow is a community-building opportunity that allows young people to lead and support change through philanthropy. At the heart of this program are activities for youth, to learn about and actively practice philanthropy. Teens identify community needs and are provided the resources to act on them - to become a part of the solution. The Teens for Tomorrow Board is comprised of 25-35 teenagers from area high schools and youth-serving organizations throughout the Quad Cities, representing the broad diversity of the area. The Board will meet for the school year to implement a program and grant application process, which includes: assessing community needs, on-site visits to local non-profits, sessions on leadership, values, decision-making, philanthropy, and volunteering, and awarding grants annually to area non-profits ($5,000 from the Community Foundation's - Community Impact Fund) Past Grants: Ballet Quad Cities, integrating literature and dance in 30 area schools, $1,000; Davenport Community School District, choral program, $2,000; Museum of Art Foundation, Figge Art Center construction, $5,000; Putnam Museum of History and Natural Science, $2,000; Quad City Symphony Orchestra, instruments for kids, $1,000; Diversity Service Center of Iowa, Latino Senior Center, $3,000
