YPI our 10th year!

Impactful youth philanthropy non-profit marks over $10 million in grants to local charities as it returns for 12th year in Canadian schools

The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) – an innovative approach to charitable giving, community-building and youth engagement – will return to Canadian schools for a 12th consecutive year, having granted over $10 million to local grassroots charities since first launching in 2002.

“We’re so proud of the students who take part in YPI and have made this achievement possible,” says YPI president and co-founder Julie Toskan-Casale, quick to give credit to the grade nine and 10 students who secure $5000 grants for charitable organizations with a community focus.
