The Scott County Community Foundation established the Youth Grantmaking Council (“YGC”) with a $50,000 grant from the Paul Ogle Foundation and a $4,000 “Angel Grant” from the Moore Foundation. The YGC was formed as a way to get youth involved in the community.
The goals of the YGC are to provide opportunities for leadership development, provide positive peer support, learn about philanthropy and serving the community, form a partnership with other youth and adults, and grow the endowment for the future.
In 2010, the YGC expanded its community service committee to allow youth from the community to join by completing monthly community service projects.
