Transformative Youth Development Grant Program:

The Silver Family Foundation focuses on transformative youth development programs that offer in-depth, long-term investments and opportunities for motivated, low-income youth.

 We prioritize programs that have measurable results:

  • Mentoring school-age youth;

  • Providing academic intervention and support to help students achieve benchmark reading, successfully transition to, and complete, high school;

  • Preparing students for college and career through college preparatory programs, and college retention efforts.

Examples of programs we fund can be found on our grantee page.
