Program Description

  • Philanthropy and Youth (PaY) The vision of Philanthropy and Youth (PaY) is to develop the philanthropic spirit in high school students by cultivating passion and purpose through leadership skill development, and proactive community impact. Adapted from the Winnipeg Foundation’s Youth in Philanthropy (YiP) Program, PaY is designed to introduce local high school students to the importance of leadership and service through grant-making. PaY engages over 600 students from 21 area high schools. Each PaY committee is allocated $5,000 to use for grant-making in the community. Student-led committees identify areas of focus, research community nonprofits and conduct site visits before deciding how to award their allocated grant money. Participating schools include: Barnesville, Central Cass, Davies, Detroit Lakes, Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton, Fargo North, Fargo South, Hawley, Kindred, Lake Park-Audubon, Moorhead, Northern Cass, Oak Grove, Park Chris an, Pelican Rapids, Red River Area Learning Center, Shanley, Sheyenne, West Fargo, West Fargo Community, and Woodrow Wilson.
