New Funding Opportunity!

We are pleased to share that the Perrin Family Foundation is preparing to launch the Critically Conscious Youth Development (CCYD) grant program. PFF developed this multi-year grant making and capacity building opportunity with the intention of sharing a framework that introduces a new lens for youth development programs; focused on centering identity, lived experience and political education as a core competency.

The Perrin Family Foundation partners with organizations based in under-resourced communities across Connecticut in order to create environments that support
youth as leaders of social change.

Creating opportunities for youth to share their truths, question the status quo, exercise leadership and take action to create change will not only pave the way for young people’s lifelong participation and leadership in the civic sphere, it also has the potential to transform our youth, communities, and institutions in the here and now.


Investing in organizations and grassroots groups engaged in youth-led social change


Deepening the effectiveness and impact of youth-led social change efforts across Connecticut


Cultivating a community and philanthropic ecosystem committed to youth-led social change
