Plan Now to Apply for Youth Initiative Funding from By Youth For Youth for 2020 Programming

Join BYFY!

BYFY (By Youth For Youth) is a unique volunteer opportunity for youth to become leaders in the community. BYFY members are Dane County high school students who identify critical issues impacting their peers, establish funding priorities, review proposals, and recommend funding to support youth programs.

Plan Now to Apply for Youth Initiative Funding from By Youth For Youth for 2020 Programming

BYFY encourages Dane County student and youth-led initiatives to start planning their funding proposals for the BYFY 2019-2020 funding period. Co-led by United Way of Dane County, City of Madison, and UW-Madison Extension Dane County, BYFY is a committee of local high school students who will direct approximately $20,000 to projects generated, planned and implemented by youth groups benefiting people across Dane County. Youth/youth groups can apply for up to $3,000 for a one year period.

Details for the BYFY 2019-2020 Request for Proposals will be available in late November 2019 and the proposal deadline will be in mid January 2020. Funding awards will be given at the end of April 2020. 

By Youth For Youth is a collaborative project sponsored by the City of Madison Community Development Division, Dane County Youth Commission, United Way of Dane County, and UW-Madison Division of Extension Dane County.
