The 2019 CAYPP Grant Process is NOW OPEN.
The Coatesville Area Youth Philanthropy Program (CAYPP) of the Brandywine Health Foundation has identified its funding priority for the program’s fourth year. With the financial support of Citadel, the Marshall-Reynolds Foundation and the Genuardi Family Foundation, CAYPP will invest $15,000 into the greater Coatesville area in Spring 2019.
CAYPP will award grants in the range of $5,000 to $10,000 to eligible organizations that address adolescent suicide prevention. CAYPP is seeking organizations that are able to engage community members in a sustainable manner, produce measurable outputs and outcomes, and collaborate well with other local agencies, including but not limited to the Coatesville Area School District. The greater Coatesville community includes the nine municipalities in the Coatesville Area School District: the City of Coatesville, the Townships of Caln, East Fallowfield, Sadsbury, Valley, West Brandywine, West Caln, and the Boroughs of Modena and South Coatesville.
