For more than 50 years, Service League provided teens with a safe place to gather at the Youth Canteen, awarded scholarships to area students and supported the youth of Washington County. The Service League operated the Bargain Box Annex and held the Kitchens & More Tour to support their charitable work.

The Service League continues its legacy of supporting Washington County youth through their Service League Fund, providing grants to programs and organizations that offer services to teens and children.

The Service League Fund invites proposals for their spring or fall grant cycles. Any 501(c)3 offering programs and services for youth in Washington County may apply for a maximum of $5,000 in the following areas:

Operating Support: Grants can request general operating support of the organization. Proposals should state how the mission of the nonprofit supports youth and how the grant will help to better fulfill that mission.

Programming: Grant support for current programming should describe the impact of the program on youth and the desired outcomes to achieve.

New Initiatives: Grant can help launch a new initiative or program of the organization. Proposals should describe how the initiative will be funded after the grant period ends.

Training: Grants to improve the critical skills of staff in the organization can be requested. Training can include courses, certification, conferences, and on-site instruction.

Please Note: Organizations may only receive one grant from the Service League Fund per fiscal year (July-June).
