What an exciting year it’s been for members of our Teen Grantmaking Initiative (TGI)! Since September 2011 the youth philanthropy group has learned about all aspects of the grantmaking process, including

conducting a community needs assessment and writing a Request for Proposals,

reviewing grant requests,

and conducting site visits.

The youth announced their grants at ACCESS’ 41st Anniversary Dinner in front of nearly 2,000 people!

They raised funds for their program,

performed community service,

and even traveled to the Michigan state capitol for a youth philanthropy leadership camp!

CAAP would like to our TGI members, TGI grantees, and staff at our sister project NNAAC for all the hard work and support over the past year! Let’s keep up the momentum in 2012-13!
