Anti-Violence Programs for Youth Funded

United Methodist Church: A Brighter Future for Children and Youth
A Brighter Future for Children and Youth, an initiative of the United Methodist Church, supports nonprofit organizations nationwide that address the needs of children and young people age 5 to 18 in the areas of violence prevention, anti-abuse, and relationship abuse. Grants of up to $4,000 are provided to small-scale, community, and church-based programs. Priority is given to programs that have significant involvement of women and youth at the grassroots level. Funded programs should demonstrate the ability to raise additional funds from other sources. Grant requests must be submitted by July 1, 2011. Application guidelines and forms may be downloaded from the United Methodist Church website.
