Working Towards a Brighter Future

The Young Philanthropist Fund (YPF) was created through a partnership with The Mahoning Valley Young Professionals and The Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley. The fund was created to introduce our younger generation to philanthropy by fundraising, analysis of grant requests, site visits to non-profits, and recommendation of grants to be awarded from the fund.

The board overseeing the process is comprised of representatives from the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, and the Mahoning Valley Young Professionals. The board goes through the entire grantmaking process: setting distribution goals, calling for applications, reviewing requests, and awarding contributions.
