What is the Young Professional Giving Circle (YP Giving)?
YP Giving is a philanthropy program established in 2022 that is run through the Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce, The Luzerne Foundation, and AllOne Charities, in partnership with the Chamber’s Regional Young Professionals Network.
This program introduces young professionals in the Greater Wyoming Valley the opportunity to leave a lasting impact on their community through a local giving platform, and also helps to cultivate our next generation of philanthropists.
Donations can be made in a variety of tiers that allow young professionals to contribute at their financial comfort level, to create an inclusive and accessible philanthropic experience.
All donors who participate in this program will have the ability to vote on one of the YP Giving nonprofit finalists, to pick the year's winner. That organization will receive a grant from the fund to help them accomplish a community project that aligns with the focus area of the grant program for that year.
