Investing in the well-being of young people
SPECIAL FALL 2020 GRANT PROGRAM:
SUPPORTING THE EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING OF YOUTH
Between the pandemic and the renewed spotlight on systemic racism, 2020 has been a turbulent year for everyone, including children who are feeling anxious and fearful. Young people with prior mental health issues have been particularly affected. What more can we do to protect and nurture the emotional well-being of our kids during these unprecedented times?
The Sudbury Foundation is offering youth development nonprofits in our catchment area a one-time grant opportunity to develop new or expanded programs and resources to enhance emotional health supports for children of all ages.
Programming may be targeted to children, parents/guardians, caregivers, teachers, and others working directly with youth, and could include one-on-one supports, support groups, education, outreach and messaging, or other creative strategies that address a range of issues including, but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, fear, loneliness, and grief.
Applicants must have a 501(c)3 designation and be based in or primarily serving constituents in our catchment communities which include Acton, Concord, Framingham, Hudson, Lincoln, Marlborough, Maynard, Natick, Stow, Sudbury, and Wayland.
Applicants may request up to $20,000 in funding. A limited number of grants will be available.
