The circumstances of 2020 have forced us to consider new ways to make a difference in our community. Therefore, this year’s 2021 Youth Philanthropy Contest will be completely virtual. As always, bring your biggest ideas and brightest ambitions!

All sections below must be completed and submitted by Friday, February 5th, 2021 at 5:00 P.M. to be considered. The selection committee will be reviewing all applications. Winners will then be announced on Friday February 19th via the Philanthropy Council of Northeast Nebraska’s Facebook page. We will contact you if your project has been selected to receive funding.
