Be Fearless Be Kind Grants
Youth Service America is partnering with Hasbro’s signature philanthropic initiative to encourage young people to stand up for others, include everyone, and take action when they see a problem. Be Fearless Be Kind Grants give young people an opportunity to put their empathy, passion, and creativity into action as they help make the world a better place. Grants of $500, $1,000, or $2,000 will be provided to nonprofit organizations and K-12 schools throughout the United States to support youth-led community projects that take place through December 15, 2017. These projects should address meaningful local and global issues through Awareness, Service, Advocacy, and Philanthropy. Applications will be accepted and grants awarded on a rolling basis until October 31, 2017.
