Youth Philanthropy Board Shatters Fundraising Goal

The Youth Area Philanthropists (YAPPERS), an initiative of the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque (CFGD), recently raised nearly $10,000 for its grantmaking cycle to benefit youth in the Dubuque community. The group’s annual fundraiser—Feed the Need, a luncheon and silent auction held October 19 in the Roshek Building lobby—drew a large crowd and generous sponsorships, with proceeds more than doubling last year’s total of $4,100.

The YAPPERS are 30 high school students who focus on granting dollars to local organizations that aid youth in poverty as well as those struggling with education and mental health.
