About BLING

Building Leaders in Innovative New Giving (BLING) is YLI’s newest youth philanthropy program in San Francisco. Young people living in San Francisco can apply for mini-grants of up to $5000 for their own projects. BLING is using a social justice model which aims to engage youth in critical thinking to fund and support youth-led projects that directly address important issues and inequities affecting San Francisco youth and their communities. BLING engages youth leaders ages 13–17 interested in building youth power to address inequities through philanthropic giving. This strategy is led through popular education approaches, meaningful youth-led action research, and decision making that is accountable to youth across SF. Together, youth grantmakers and youth program officers fund $60,000 annually in two grant cycles. In addition, BLING youth leaders work directly with funded projects to ensure their impact and sustainability.
