Request for Proposals for TLT Grant Program

The Scranton Area Foundation is pleased to announce a request for proposals for the Tomorrow’s Leaders Today (TLT) grants program.  This year, grants will be provided to organizations working to make a difference in the areas of Hunger, Homelessness, Suicide Prevention, and Substance Abuse.

Tomorrow’s Leaders Today (TLT) is a youth leadership program of Leadership Lackawanna that provides 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 Foundation.  TLT seeks to help participants realize what they can do to make a difference in their community as young philanthropists and understand and further develop their leadership skills.

The Scranton Area Foundation is proud to partner with Leadership Lackawanna in introducing the concept of philanthropy and grantmaking to our region’s youth, who are the future of Northeastern Pennsylvania.  This year the Scranton Area Foundation has allocated $10,000 for the TLT class to grant.  Project areas were chosen by the TLT students.

Applications may be obtained by emailing Cathy Fitzpatrick at cathyf@safdn.org .  The deadline for the applications is February 15, 2014, and organizations are welcome to apply for grants of up to $3,000.  We look forward to your proposals.
