How to Donate
We are proud to have completed two rounds of Bay Area Inspire Awards funding. Through generous new funding, we were able to expand the 2015 round to San Mateo County and increase the number of awardees from six in 2014 to eight in 2015. However, there is much more work to do! You can help us expand the program to make more awards available to additional committed young social innovators throughout the Bay Area.
Please help additional talented young people make positive change in their communities by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Bay Area Inspire Awards fund at the Philanthropic Ventures Foundation.
