The Arlington Youth Philanthropy Initiative (AYPI) is a group of students from area high schools who are committed to making a difference in Arlington through youth grants for nonprofits. These community-minded teens recruit and mentor peers to develop youth-led projects that impact our community. The youth-led AYPI Board makes decisions on grants to fund these youth-initiated projects, and works to preserve and grow the Fund for Youth Philanthropy.
Arlington Youth Philanthropy Initiative (AYPI) is offering grants for sustainable, youth-led projects that make a difference in the community.

Fill out this form and email it to AYPI@arlcf.org for consideration. Grant applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, with priority consideration for funding given to those received by February 15th, 2021. Students will also be asked to submit a more detailed Action Plan and make a presentation to the Youth Board, following the acceptance of a Preliminary Application. We will work with students to make this process as streamlined as possible and help them to develop and refine their project ideas.
