GRANTS FOR YOUNG LEADERS
Fairbanks, we are opening up our grant application *exclusively to children and teens in the Fairbanks North Star Borough! With an incredibly generous $5,000 matching pledge from Usibelli Coal Mine, Our 2 Cents Fairbanks will be awarding 10 Fairbanks children $1000 each to complete a community project of their own! At Our 2 Cents we feel passionately about empowering our local youth to get excited about leadership, service, and community - and we are excited to work with 10 young Fairbanksans to help them improve our community!
The Grants For Young Leaders Program is open to children 5 years old - 17 years old who reside in the FNSB.
How Grants For Young Leaders Will Work!
Step 1 - Submit your grant application(below!), explaining how you would like to spend your $1000 dollar grant and why your project is important to you and to Fairbanks.
Step 2 - If your grant application is approved, you will be invited to participate in an online orientation with local Fairbanks leaders to talk about leadership and service!
Step 3 - Then we'll get to work! Usibelli Coal Mine's wonderful donation will start each child's fundraising goal at 50% with $500! Our 2 Cents Fairbanks will help each child to fundraise until they meet their $1000 goal!
***Note To Parents: Each Grant's $1000 funds will be used to purchase goods, products or services - for example if your child wants to fight hunger in Fairbanks, instead of delivering a $1,000 check to our local food bank, Our 2 Cents would help your child to shop for and deliver $1,000 worth of food. While all of our local nonprofits greatly need and appreciate cash donations, one purpose of this project is to actively engage youth and teens in service.
The application acceptance period has now closed.
