“The State of Youth Philanthropy 2020-2021,” is a part of Sillerman’s Youth Philanthropy Project and was completed in collaboration with Foundation for MetroWest.

In this brief we discuss the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19 on youth philanthropy programs across the United States. We consider how young people and their adult supporters adapted to and stayed engaged with virtual youth philanthropy programming as the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic led to abrupt changes in the way that young people and program leaders work, learn, engage, and live. In this PDF,  you will find a brief comparison between responses from Honeycomb Youth Philanthropy Programs and the overall responses of Youth Philanthropy Programs surveyed.
