Partnership in Youth Services Grants

Partnership in Youth Services Grants (PYS) award up to $4,500 to non-profit organizations that are dedicated to solve community problems and enhance the quality of lives for children, young adults, and families in Bucks County, Pa.

Grant Description

This grant program gives preference to nonprofits applying to FCP for the first time and those that have not applied in the past 5 years in the fall, and accepts only new applicants in the spring. Recipients must provide a 12-month final report.

Awarded annually in September and March:

  • Full Application due August 15 (Fall) and February 1 (Spring)

Important information about the spring grant cycle (first-time applicants only): After completing the brief application online, select applicants will be invited to discuss their project/program with members of FCP’s Board of Directors.

Please note that non-profit organizations are not eligible for renewal grants if they seek funding for the same project. Only complete applications submitted by the deadline will receive consideration. Late, incomplete, or applications not aligned with FCP’s mission will not be considered. Please visit the Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia and the Council on Foundations for tips on writing a successful grant proposal and navigating the due-diligence process.
