ACORN FUND FOR YOUTH GRANT APPLICATION

The Acorn Fund for Youth at London Community Foundation supports and provides funding for youth-related projects and initiatives in London and Middlesex County.

This fund was established in 1998 with initial funding from the Community Fund and from the Greg Brydon Memorial Trust Fund at Thames Valley.

We invite you to consider applying for a grant if the project addresses one of the Vital Signs issue areas and involves youth in London, ON and/or Middlesex County, ON, between 14 to 24 years of age in one or more of the following ways:

  • Youth helping youth 
  • Youth helping the community 
  • Youth being helped by the community

Generally, the grant amount is a maximum of $1,000.

News for 2018: While the London Community Foundation will continue to fund, promote and accept applications for the Acorn Fund for Youth grant program, and the review and selection will continue to be led by the Youth in Philanthropy Committee, this committee, formerly part of LCF, is now operating within the London Youth Advisory Council - find out more about this
