On June 3, the Teen Grantmaking Initiative (TGI), a project of the Center for Arab American Philanthropy (CAAP) held its inaugural Year End Celebration to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of the past year.
TGI is a youth philanthropy group dedicated to bettering their community through grantmaking. Formed in the fall of 2011 in Dearborn, MI, TGI has seen much success over the course of the program. Since its inception, TGI-Dearborn has granted $20,000 to organizations serving the greater Detroit area.
The event saw special recognition given to select outstanding members for their dedication to TGI throughout the year. Members also officially announced their grantees for 2015. This year, members are granting $5,000 to 4 organizations battling substance abuse and domestic violence among teens: Arts & Scraps, HAVEN, Eastside Community Network and Detroit Community Health Connection’s Healthy Teens Community Care Center.
