YGA appreciates the generosity of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, which for a fourth year invested $5,000 in YGA’s grantmaking to support youth philanthropy in Forsyth County.
Youth Grantmakers in Action is a diverse group of youth ages 15-18 from all over Forsyth County who meet during the school year to gain leadership experience, represent the youth of the community, and grant money to youth-led community projects that will have a positive impact on the community.
A program of The Winston-Salem Foundation, YGA was formed in 2005 from the vision of Dr. Nathaniel Irvin and the financial support of Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust. Since its first round of grants were made in 2006, YGA has granted over $49,000 to youth-led community projects.
