Grant Opportunity Through Tomorrow’s Leaders Today Grants Program

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is pleased to announce a request for proposals for the Tomorrow’s Leaders Today (TLT) grants program.  In 2019, grants through the TLT grants program will be provided to nonprofit organizations working to make a difference in the following priority areas:

Behavioral Health
Homelessness
Opioid and Drug Rehabilitation
Veterans

Tomorrow’s Leaders Today (TLT) is a youth leadership program of Leadership Lackawanna that provides area high school juniors with the opportunity to meet with community leaders and decision makers. In addition to leadership development, the students are also required to complete a philanthropy curriculum conducted by the Scranton Area Community Foundation. TLT seeks to help participants realize what they can do to make a difference in their community as young philanthropists and to further develop their leadership skills.

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is proud to partner with Leadership Lackawanna to introduce the concept of philanthropy and grantmaking to our region’s youth who are the future of Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Scranton Area Community Foundation has allocated $8,000 for the 2018-2019 TLT class to grant. Priority areas were chosen by the TLT students.

Grant applications for the TLT grants program will be accepted until the deadline of Tuesday, January 15, 2019. Nonprofit organizations are welcome to apply for grants of up to $2,000. We look forward to your proposals.

Please note a Letter of Intent is NOT necessary for these applications.

For more information on the TLT Program please contact Scranton Area Community Foundation Grants Administrator, Cathy Fitzpatrick, at cathyf@safdn.org.
