The Ruddie Memorial Youth Foundation is accepting applications from innovative programs designed to help underprivileged youth reach their full potential.
Grants of $25,000 will be awarded for "new, uncommon, unconventional, or untested" youth programs aimed at identifying effective practices that lead to breakthrough results in supporting underprivileged youth. In the past, funded programs have ranged from credit union savings projects and intensive tutoring programs, to afterschool day care and art programs, to health workshops.
To be eligible, organizations must be tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and serve youth in greater Baltimore, Boston, Los Angeles, Madison, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and/or Washington, D.C.
