The Future Project is revolutionizing education at the cost of almost nothing. We invest in people and we believe in people as the most transformative forces to be invested in. This money would go directly into funding the innovative and revolutionizing training activities for our Future Fellows, Future Coaches, and Dream Directors to strategically unleash themselves to be the best versions of themselves and the most transformative leaders this world has ever seen. With this intensive training, they will be able to more effectively experiment how to fuse their passions and dreams into action through building Future Projects that transform our societal and personal challenges and fears into great opportunities to change the world.

We want to keep our camps free and mainly serve girls who live in low-income public housing complexes in the Chinatown area of Honolulu, where residents are considered poor or disadvantaged (nearly 70% receive some form of public assistance and 25% have an income of less than $10,000/year). As we did last year, for this upcoming summer camps, we want to offer healthy breakfast, snacks, and lunches, from places in the neighborhood; we want to provided the girls with supplies and transportation. Based on last year cost, a camp’s budget averages between 10,000 to 12,000.

Todays economic climate is not kind to small nonprofits, often they are in competition for much needed dollars with larger organizations. Funding through the Give For Youth Platform would allow us the opportunity to get much needed quality programming of the shelf and into action for youth who need positive outlets to combat the issues they face daily.

Arab American Teens Funding Education & Health in Detroit

TGI, unlike many other youth philanthropy groups, does not currently have an endowment for their grantmaking program. This means the group does not have a pool of money gaining interest annually, which they can grant out to deserving nonprofit projects. Despite this, the youth have become proactive fundraisers, venturing into their neighborhoods and securing funds from local businesses and community members. Funding through the Give for Youth platform would comprise a large portion of TGI’s 2013 grantmaking goal and program costs, the rest of which will be secured through various fundraising initiatives - devised by the youth themselves.

Baltimore Young Writers' Studio (aka sleepaway writing camp!)
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

In 2012, we funded the Writers' Studio by raising $5,300 through a Kickstarter campaign, after all local foundation funding requests were rejected. We were determined to see through the vision that we'd grown out of our previous 2-day writing studios. With foundation funding again scarce in Baltimore, we face a difficulty in doubling the length and capacity of our Studio. Funded gained through the Give For Youth platform would allow us to both expand the number of youth we can serve and enhance the Studio programming for these youth.

The funding will be used to pay for the programs: facilitators, activities, admissions and supplies. We look at it this way, to work with the youth we need to provide activities that are in line with what we want to accomplish with them. And to do that through networking with other programs the youth get the benefit of their expertise. We can do a lot of things, but let’s face it no one can do it alone. And and complete it and still be sane.

This Literacy Initiative and the Slingerland® Multisensory approach that it entails require a multitude of recourses to ensure its impact on our members. Through the Give for Youth platform, BGCP would fundraise with a goal of $10,000 to fund software for the Literacy Centers at all 12 Clubs. This software includes the istation® educational computer program, a revolutionary internet-based educational network and integrated reading and intervention program; and the Kurzweil 3000 digital dictionaries and thesaurus which provides instant access to definitions and a deeper understanding of words within text. This software allows kids to have fun while learning, lets members move at their own pace or go back and review material, and adds another dimension to the interactive learning set forth in the Slingerland® approach.

Because we purposefully serve youth and organization that are unable to afford the experiences we offer, the funds to cover the cost of our adventure trips must come from outside sources, such as individual and corporate donors, and grants. In order to maintain fiscal responsibility, we only scholarship as many trips as we have money to cover. Therefore, any money made through Give For Youth would have a direct impact on the number of youth we are able to serve in the upcoming year. Over 30 separate organizations have expressed interest in partnering with us, but are unable to do so until the funds have been raised. These organizations represent around 600 youth from the state of Oregon who could tremendously benefit from these experiences.

Funding through the Give for Youth platform would provide a clear vehicle for fundraising for Youth ACTION!. Participation will offer The SPOT greater visibility and reach than private fundraising and grant writing alone, where we are often bound by a variety of limitations around entrepreneurial activities. We believe that youth can succeed when supported, and broader community buy-in confirms the value of youth advocacy, leadership and creative expression.

Engaging students in low-income communities with renewable energy.
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

This funding would not just allow us to complete these projects. This funding would rally people around our vision. Our vision is every student in America having meaningful learning experiences with renewable energy before graduating high school. And, the implications of realizing our vision would ripple through our society for centuries. More specifically, this funding would inspire students, communities, and funders alike. Students would feel the resounding love from the community around their initiative. Communities would rally behind their kids after they see how proud the kids are of the results. And, funders will see how powerful they can be. In summary, the possibility of gaining funding through the Give for Youth Platform is more about engaging people around an idea that it is about fundraising.

We believe that this project is a good fit for the Give For Youth Platform because the innovative curriculum is engaging and impactful. We will be able to share our story with donors and show exactly where funding goes (ie. $200 provides a work stipend, $50 provides lunch for the program, $75 provides materials for a silk screening project). The media component of the project also builds in transparency and opportunities to provide updates to donors. The total program cost will be $24,000. People want to know that their donation makes an impact. This micro funding project shows donors how their dollars are put to use and the impact that can be made when they join others. We also know that people are motivated by a match - an opportunity to have their contribution stretch with Microsoft support makes donors excited.

Support Seattle Underserved Youth Study Abroad in Morocco
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

Your support in sending OWN Arabic language students to Morocco this summer would enable us to offer an immersive cultural experience and boost their language and leadership skills. Furthermore, it would promote our broader goal of creating the next generation of global leaders. Our program evaluations have demonstrated that one of the most significant areas of impact that OneWorld Now! has on a student’s life is their increased aspirations for higher education as well as their increased involvement in community service. OWN youth who study abroad are more engaged in global affairs and then tend to seek out additional international opportunities in college and beyond. OneWorld Now! is one of the nation’s leading organizations in providing access to study abroad opportunities to low-income and minority youth, who are sorely underrepresented in most study abroad programs.

And Action! Providing Adolescents with Autism a Filmmaking Experience
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

The inaugural Autism Film Program ran in June 2012. From last year's program, we know that the costs associated with providing a summer program for 50 filmmakers can be very expensive. ACT Today! would not be able to offer this program in 2013 without funding assistance. Expenses for the program include cost of facility rental, hiring Inclusion Films to bring in professionals and equipment to teach and provide participants with the means to create a short film, costs associated with providing participants a red carpet premiere experience at the San Diego Film Festival, among others. ACT Today! is seeking funds through foundation grants, corporate sponsorships, and microfunding through the public. Should the Autism Film Program be selected for the Give for Youth platform, we hope to not only garner donations to make this program possible, we also aspire to raise awareness and educate the public about the abilities of those with ASD.
