Grant Opportunity Through Tomorrow’s Leaders Today Grants Program


The Scranton Area Community Foundation is pleased to announce a request for proposals for the Tomorrow’s Leaders Today (TLT) grants program. In 2020, grants will be provided to organizations working to make a difference in the following Priority Areas:

Tomorrow’s Leaders Today (TLT) is a youth leadership program of Leadership Lackawanna that provides high school juniors with the opportunity to meet with community leaders and decision-makers. In addition to leadership development, the students are also required to complete a philanthropy curriculum conducted by the Scranton Area Community Foundation. TLT seeks to help participants realize what they can do to make a difference in their community as young philanthropists and to further develop their leadership skills.

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is proud to partner with Leadership Lackawanna in introducing the concept of philanthropy and grantmaking to our region’s youth, who are the future of Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Scranton Area Community Foundation has allocated $8,000 for the 2019 – 2020 TLT class to grant. Priority areas were chosen by the TLT students.

Grant applications for the TLT grants program are available through our online grant management portal. Applications will be accepted from charitable organizations in Lackawanna County through January 15, 2020.
