GIVING BACK TO THOSE

WHO GIVE BACK


As our community continues the fight against COVID-19, we are stepping up. This year, we are committing an additional scholarship to college-bound high school seniors who have dedicated time and energy to serving the Sullivan County community. We are also launching “The Grace Grant,” which will support youth service projects and other affairs that are aimed at engaging a new generation of leaders. Learn more and apply on our “Grants” page.

Help us empower Sullivan County youth today.


We believe in the power of young people.

The Grace Johansen Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in Sullivan County, New York, on the cusp of the Catskill Mountains and the Delaware River Valley.

Every year, we provide scholarships to young people who have dedicated their high school careers to improving their community. If you’re interested in supporting youth community engagement, consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Grace Johansen Memorial Foundation today.
