The G.A.P. (Grand Activities and Programs) Fund established for Grand County Youth

Upcoming G.A.P. Fund Deadlines: October 15, 2016, January 15, 2017 and April 15, 2017 and July 15, 2017.

The Grand Foundation and the Winter Park - Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce are pleased to continue fundraising efforts for the Grand Foundation's G.A.P. Fund for Youth donor advised fund.

This fund is available to Grand County youth (18 and under) to help provide a financial means to participate in non-academic activities and programs by providing and/or assisting with participation fees.  The G.A.P. Fund (Grand Activities and Programs) is designed to target a section of funding for youth that has not been sufficiently addressed in our local communities.  

There is an application process with deadlines and funding periods.  At this time, the focus of grants given out will be to 501(c)(3), non-profit and service club organizations (i.e. ski schools, recreation districts and competition centers). These entities can apply on behalf of individuals in need.

Note: Starting with the October 2015 Grant Cycle, Daycare expenses will not be considered. GAP Funds for Daycare support will be given directly to Grand Beginnings and requests will be made during a Grand Beginnings grant cycle. Please contact Grand Beginnings for grant request guidelines.

“We are thrilled to partner on this fund.  These grants are just what families need in this fluctuating economy,” states Megan Ledin, Executive Director of the Grand Foundation and Catherine Ross, Director of the Winter Park - Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce.
