2012 Grant Recipients

Supporting Our Youth

We reached out to some affiliate organizations to hear what their greatest needs are. Though these organizations work in many areas of service, we found that underserved youth in the Bay Area face some of the most pressing needs. Our 2012 grants focus on projects that support the growth, security and well-being of our youth.
