Christian Stewart is a graduating member of the 2017 Youth Philanthropy Council, YPC. He along with other member-peers used their time, talents, and treasures to make a huge difference in the Birmingham and surrounding communities. The youth council created and distributed a Request for Proposal (RFP), vetted grant requests, conducted site visits, and lobbied through presentations to have their organizations to receive funding. Both of Christian's organizations the Grace House Ministries ($4,000) and the New Rising Star Community Co-op Program ($4,000) were among the five non- profits that were awarded grants. Funding was provided by the Joseph S. Bruno Charitable Foundation.
Hats off to Christian for representing Shades Valley and making a difference!
