Your SADD chapter is working hard to make a difference. Wouldn’t it be great to earn some money at the same time? There are always contests available that your chapter can enter and have a chance to win prizes that include thousands of dollars! See below for the possibilities, and remember – your chance of winning is usually a lot better than you think!
YSA Global Youth Council – Deadline August 15, 2014
Our friends at YSA are looking for applicants for their Global Youth Council, which will select just ten students from around the world for a year of leadership within YSA – creating programs, reviewing grant applications, and serving as ambassadors for youth service. The deadline to apply is August 15, but those who apply by July 31 will receive preference in the review process. For more information and the application, visit ysa.org/youthcouncil.
Besides contests, there are always grants available for your chapter to apply for to help fund your efforts. Usually, these grants require you to hold activities around a particular topic. Here are a couple of good places to research possible grants for your chapter:
Each year, YSA gives away $1 million in grants to youth groups like SADD chapters who take on service projects. There are a wide variety of grants with deadlines throughout the year, so check back frequently to see what’s new. Enter “SADD” in the “Partner Code” field of the application, and you’ll get a priority review!
