While the extra $500 is nice to help jumpstart a student-led project, there is more to take away from receiving one of the Door County Community Foundation’s Youth Grants. The organization awards two types of grants: youth as resources and youth in arts. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy says getting the grants is not hard to do, but you have to put in the time and effort.
The program, which was started by the Door County Service Club Coalition, will announce its recipients in the near future. Last year, youth used the grants to help promote the sales of 500 stuffed dogs to support the Door County Sheriff’s Department’s Crime Prevention Foundation to raise funds for a K-9 unit.
