Youth Engagement in Philanthropy (YEP) Giving Tuesday Campaign

Being young doesn’t mean you can’t make an impact.

Just ask our amazing YEP (Youth Engagement in Philanthropy) members. These high school students come together from across the Fox Valley area to #BeTheGood and provide $25,000 in grants for other local youth, but they need your help to reach their goal.

Donate today to our Youth Engagement in Philanthropy (YEP) Giving Tuesday Campaign and double your impact thanks to a generous grant from the Dunham Fund. Together we can #BetheGood that our Fox Valley youth need now more than ever. Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $25,000. Thank you for your support!

$25 donation = $50 for local youth

$50 donation = $100 for local youth

$75 donation = $150 for local youth

$100 donation = $200 for local youth

Richard and Susan Schindel Scholarship Funds

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

Julia H.

[Renewing Scholarship Recipient] Graduate of Hinkley-Big Rock High School

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

Claude & Alice Allen Memorial Scholarship Recipient

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.
