Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation Supports Research on Youth Philanthropy

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

The Foundation Center recently partnered with Youth Philanthropy Connect, a program of the Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation to conduct research on youth philanthropy around the world in Scanning the Landscape of Youth Philanthropy: Observations and Recommendations for Strengthening a Growing Field. The scan, released in November 2014, shares reflections on an in-depth examination of the story and needs of youth grantmaking (young people making monetary contributions to organizations through established institutions or governing bodies). The report finds that while more than 200 foundations worldwide offer youth grantmaking programs and more than 100 related resources exist, that information is not broadly available. Recommendations include providing wider access to youth philanthropy programs, centralizing resources, and increasing in-person gatherings.
