I am writing to inform you of an excellent opportunity for high school students living in zip-codes 15219 or 15213. The Poise Foundation, along with School 2 Career and McAuley Ministries, is offering the Youth Philanthropy Initiative Grant Competition to students grades 9-12 that are interested in starting their own business or continuing one they have started. There are four $500 grants and one $1000 grant available. Applications will be accepted from students ages 13-18 until Monday, November 19. The application is available here. Students will also need to present their business idea on December 8, 2012 in order to compete for the grants. Please contact Dynae Shaw at 412-682-1144 or firstname.lastname@example.org to receive their Request for Proposals.
Best of luck,
R. Daniel Lavelle
