Youth Making Change
Youth Making Change (YMC) is a teen-led grant-making program providing teens with the opportunity to engage directly in organized philanthropy (giving grants).
The Fund for Santa Barbara is a non-profit community foundation that supports grassroots organizations working for social, economic, environmental and political change in Santa Barbara County.
"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any."
There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives."
- Audre Lorde
The FUND for Santa Barbara hosted it's annual Mid-Year Grant Awards Celebration in June 2016 and here are the highlights! Thanks to our videographer, Ryan Pettey and multi-talented filmmaker Board Members, Ted Rhodes & Margaret Lazarus. This video would not have been possible without the support of Jean Kaplan.
