BLING (Building Leaders in Innovative New Giving) is providing up to $5,000 grants for youth projects! This is an amazing opportunity for youth leaders (11-24 years old) who are excited about making a change in their community!

The application deadline is February 2nd, 2020 @11:59pm! 

So what is the BLING Program?

BLING is a youth philanthropy program where young people fund the ideas of other young people. We are currently offering grants of up to $5,000 for youth-led projects that are rooted in a social justice issue.

How can you apply for the grant?
You can access the BLING application via this link.

What we look for in projects:

  1. Is it youth-led (11-24 years)?
  2. Is it San Francisco-based?
  3. Is it social justice-oriented (equity & equality)?
  4. Is it innovative?
  5. Does it serve youth?

Need some support in thinking through your idea and writing it up in a proposal? Send an email to Tierra Christian ([email protected]) and request a presentation for your group.

BLING would love if you could share this info with any passionate youth or colleagues. Reach out to Tierra Christian if you have any questions!
