Youth In Philanthropy

The Enhance Hamilton County Foundation’s Youth in Philanthropy program allows juniors and seniors from Hamilton County to experience philanthropy first hand by reviewing grants and awarding monies steered by their decisions to assist local nonprofit organizations.

A total of eight area students (four juniors and four seniors) participate in the Youth in Philanthropy program and represent both the South Hamilton and Webster City Community School Districts.

Student committee members will receive a $250 scholarship for each year they participate as a Youth in Philanthropy member for a maximum scholarship of $500 from the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation.

For more information on the Youth in Philanthropy program, contact Tiffany Larson, Committee Chair, at or by calling 515.602.6371 x 4.
