Youth Philanthropy

YOUTH PHILANTHROPY INITIATIVE OF JOHNSON COUNTY 

Giving back to your community is an important lesson for everyone. Learning that lesson early in life develops empathetic, productive and responsible neighbors.

Inspiring Excellence

That’s why our Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF) supports the Youth Philanthropy Initiative of Johnson County (YPIJC), the first countywide youth leadership program focused on inspiring excellence in young people.

Teaching young people the importance of donating time, money and talent, helps perpetuate our Foundation’s legacy, and prepares donors and volunteers for years to come. The program provides learning opportunities and equips participants with resources, mentors and tools to solve serious community issues while developing a lifelong commitment to philanthropy.
