The Freeport Community Foundation is proud to support the Youth Advisory Council (YAC). YAC was formed in 2009 and is comprised of area youth who are dedicated to leadership and philanthropy. Throughout the year, members develop leadership skills while being introduced to grant writing, fund raising and community foundation best practices. YAC members then apply these skills to review youth-serving grant requests and select which projects will be awarded. YAC members’ fund-raising efforts help to determine the total grant funds available.
