Challenge

It is well-known that the Detroit region is currently facing a multitude of societal and economic challenges, and there is never enough funding for the nonprofits that work to alleviate these challenges. This is where TGI comes in: when youth pool their resources and make decisions to fund youth-serving education and health nonprofits, it is not only empowering for the youth but helps create real change in the community.

Solution

TGI is offering student groups and nonprofit organizations in the Detroit metro area the opportunity to apply for grants to support education and health initiatives. Examples of eligible projects include programs working to improve in-school performance, programs helping teen mothers to achieve their educational goals, and projects working on drug and tobacco education and prevention. After reviewing all of the applications TGI will select up to 5 organizations to receive grants of $1,000-2,000.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting the TGI program, you will give minority youth a voice for change in their community, while also benefiting a multitude of individuals served by education and health nonprofits.
