The San Bernardino Youth Grantmakers Fund was established in 2014 by The Community Foundation. High schools students ages 15-18, called Youth Grantmakers, address issues important to them by participating in grantmaking, a formal practice of philanthropy. The San Bernardino Youth Grantmakers survey their peers, conduct nonprofit site visits, review grant proposals, and make grant recommendations based on local youth needs.

The Community Foundation Serving the Counties of Riverside and San Bernardino (TCF) received funding from The James Irvine Foundation for the Arts Regranting Program/ Inland Empire (ARPIE) which will provide risk capital to small and micro arts organizations in the two-county region to experiment with arts engagement activities. The Arts Program goal is to promote engagement in the arts for all Californians: Arts engagement that embraces and advances the diverse way that we experience the arts and that strengthens our ability to thrive together in a dynamic and complex social environment. The regranting funds are for small arts organizations in the Inland Empire (note that Mountain Regions and High Desert areas can also apply) to experiment with new approaches to arts engagement. Grants are intended as risk-capital for very small arts organizations, agencies, art collectives and groups to pilot projects that focus on

1) reaching low-income and/or ethnically diverse populations that have been traditionally underserved by nonprofit arts organizations,

2) offering active engagement in the arts in which participants are making or practicing art, and/or

3) using nontraditional arts venues such as churches, store fronts and shopping malls, or open lots and other spaces not typically designated for arts use that are easily accessible and familiar to the public.
