Clearinghouse 11-20-14 021

Scott County Youth Grantmaking Council (“YGC”) members recently helped sort donations and stock shelves at the Scott County Clearinghouse in celebration of National Philanthropy Day. Shown are Hannah Brown, Miranda Baker, Haley Mullins, Hannah Dickerson, Lyla Waskom, Caleb White, Avery Kendall, Makalynn Brown, Elle Fleenor, Tyler White, Gavin Borden, Lyndie Foster and Andrew Foster, who all enjoyed ice cream bars from Director Nelson Spaulding, in appreciation of their assistance. The YGC is a program of the Scott County Community Foundation, and is made up of 43 students in grades 5-12 who learn about leadership, community service, fundraising and grantmaking. Through a matching grant from Lilly Endowment, all donations to the YGC’s endowment fund will be matched $.50 for every $1. Earnings from the fund are used to support youth-related activities in Scott County. Please mail your tax-deductible contribution to the Scott County Community Foundation at PO Box 25; Scottsburg, IN 47170.
