Legacy Youth Alliance Invites Grant Applications

The Legacy Youth Alliance, a youth program through the Ottumwa Regional Legacy Foundation is pleased to announce their fall grant cycle opening on September 1, 2020. The Legacy Youth Alliance, started in 2017, gives Wapello County youth a voice in the causes they care about and a means to support those causes. The Legacy Youth Alliance has members from the four high schools that serve Wapello County students: Ottumwa, Pekin, Cardinal, and Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont.

The Legacy Youth Alliance grant may distribute up to $10,000 in this competitive grant cycle. Applications must be for a youth-led project or from a youth-serving organization and should range from $500 to $2,500. Special consideration will be given to those projects that focus on the funding priority areas of early childhood education or physical, mental, or emotional health of Wapello County youth. 

Applicants must be a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization or have sponsorship of a 501(c)(3) organization.
