2018 Youth In Philanthropy



The Youth In Philanthropy program grants presentation will be held at Vincent Massey High School on May 2nd in the schools library at 7:00 pm.  This year has been  another successful and exciting year.  Students from  Vincent Massey High School, Neelin High School, Crocus Plains High School and Elton Collegiate have participated this year and we are thrilled that United Way of Brandon and District are funding partners with the Brandon Area Community Foundation again this year.  Thank you everyone!

YIP students give their time, care and help to causes they care about.  With the support of their YIP teacher advisor, each YIP committee’s primary role is to make grants to projects in their local community.
